6" suspension and 3" body.

according to skyjacker, they should tuck in nicely.

also ordered the heavy duty driveshaft as per their suggestion.

was gonna ask the same question. you'd have to SAS and cut fenders to clear 37's!!!

i hope your running 5.13 gears and your putting a for 9" in that thing, you'll be breakin axles like toothpicks!


BTW, i like your sig:)

Edit: 6" suspension, 3" body... hmm. its gonna be real tight. i have a friend with a sas'd truck and 35's. hes about 15" taller then stock, he rubs. lol

Heres two friends trucks. black is 3" body, back is 4" suspension and front is 3" suspension. and those are 32's that clear well. the SAS truck id dans, hes got 35's and they rub when tucked. hes also a good 8" taller then the lifted truck.


im excited to see them and see if they fit, but 37's is a whole new breed of tire.

I've seen a few rangers and an explorer done up with 37's and they looked fine..

yes I am doing an axle swap and going to be doing some fender trimming.

here's the look I'm going for.

a new school on 37's and an old school on 37's.

Idk if this helps any..but im runnin 36x15.5x15s under 8in of lift up front and 5 in the back. They rubbed on the very bottom of my valence so I had to trim off about an inch or so. Now they dont rub at all...I think the only reason they rubbed in the first place was just cuz they're sooo wide!

I'll know more when it arrives, the guys from the shop that will do the work ordered it..

all I know is it's the K700 kit and the body lift is a PA 70003 .

I turn wrenches, but when it comes to projects this involved I leave it to the guys that know way more that I do..

I hope you plan on doing somethign with the stock steering. The stock box and tie rod for the D35 were not designed for 37's. Those tires are going to eat through auto hubs as well I hope you plan lockouts or something. This is all assuming you don't kill the 8.8" first. I would have sas'd (haha) for that big of a tire. You can fit a lot more tire on a lot less left. Hence why I sit at 4-5" of lift and have 38.5" swampers clearing.
