Default Clarification needed

I can get a helluva good deal on some 35's for my truck, which when added to the cost of the bodylift, will still work out to be cheaper than a new set of 33's.

Question is this:
Will I clear 35s with a 3" BL and a TB crank, without the front valance? Will I need to trim anything else?

you might rub at full flex and full turn but other than that you should be ok.

I'm going to go with this answer. Worst comes to worst I'll crank the bars more and do shackles in the rear.

I only rub a little when I make sharp turns. But with 35s I can only imagine how much it would rub

My tires rub on the inside of my little bushwacker fenders that come stock on the Edge

Come to think about it, if you don't have an edge you will probably be fine. Because my tires just hit the little fenders that come on an edge

Ah yes. The venerable 3.73. It shouldn't be toooooo big of an issue, at least for now. I'll still be around 1800RPM in 5th at 65mph.
