that thing has GOT to have more than just a spindle lift.....

look how tight those tires are though....that looks really like c-r-a-p, crap! no wheel travel what so ever! if his wheel moves 1" up it rips a fender off....

That is a spindle & body lift on 39.5's.

And I know that Mazda fenders are the same, cuz those were the ones that came off my truck. The only thing is that the bulge maybe a 1/2 in. But that has nothing to do w. tire fitment. The fender 'lip' is the same as the Ranger ones...

Dude, those fenders came off of my truck. I know what they looked like. They are the same. I put a Mazda fender on one side and a ranger fender on the other & the ONLY difference was where the fender meets the corner light...

whatever man...i heard it from his mouth the reason why he wanted Mazada fenders was because they had more of a buldge than a Ranger fender.......

I dunno, there is no way I could fit 35's on just my spindles.

Griggs can fit them b/c he has no valence, and he pulled back his flares. His clearance is tight though...

I probably could fit 37's, but I know they would rub pretty bad...if I only have 3" of clearance now...thats not lookin too good for 37's..

The only comment I have on jesses, besides that it's a badass truck, is that his is a flareside, I have a fleetside, so there is no way I could fit a 39.5..

Although ryans tires looked like they would have fit, I shoulda tried them on...we kinda ran out of time though.




I dunno, I just have major doubts they would fit. I really can't see them fitting...

I'll prolly end up with either a 35" ssr radial or mtz, I love the ssr's...




I got 5 full inches with my spindle/tbar crank (not to the max) and I just recently maxxed out the tbars, so I'm probably at 5.5

My spindles did give me more than 3 though...prolly 3.5...at least.






We'll see, I mean the fact is, I have 3" clearance at the tightest points on a 33" bfg at...they run small (I'm sitting at a little under 32.5" right now) so I think a 35" ssr would fill up nicely.

and I could swear I HEARD (never seen) mazda fenders are flared and their fender flares are different. It's like a 1" bulge and a 1.5" rise IIRC...but thats only hearsay.

f' it, I'll prolly get 37" ssr radials...

i dunno why i'm makin it hard on myself, if they don't fit, I cut!!!!!!!!!

with maxed t-bars you lose upward travel anyway so really it wouldnt rub. now rear on max flex thats a different story, but its not a set up for like rock crawling or extream trails anyway its a mud bog truck/daily driver so its fine. personally i love the look cause well mine is set up the same put the largest f-ing tires you can fit with out them ripping the fenders off thats what i like i dont like UBER amounts of fender gap...

The Mazda fenders do have a different bulge and body line. The flare holes are also different.

If I were you I would go with 35s or go up to Ryans and test fit first before buying.
