Yeah unfortunately only mods can change titles on here :/ Second part of that post really doesn't make since though, not sure if its a question, statement or what. But i was just curious, people post multiple topics all the time trying to get a faster answer. I would say you could get 37's on it. Also depends on the type of driving you do, you could run bigger tires if its a street queen.

I believe you can go 5.13 but im not sure if they still make them for the dana 35. And you will probably have trouble with front end parts going over a 35 inch tire.

Ill even running a 35" I would run a Dana 35. If you're only driving in the mud do a swap for some full size 1 ton axles. Then you can run a 38 without worrying about breaking anything and you will probably rub if you go with 40's

You can only go as much as 4.88s if you're keeping the front the same. the D35 can't accommodate anything taller than a 4.88.

With that big of a tire you are going to really be stressing the front end to its limits. Especially if you pound on it in the mud. As stated earlier an SAS would be the best bet for a mud truck. There is a wealth of info on this forum about the process as well.
