its gonna be tight, i think 35s would be a better fit, not to mention your gonna have to gear it and its going to wreak havoc on the drive terrain. the fitment would probably be close...

what if i found a rcd lift would the measurements be the same. well what im asking is would they fit and not be as bad on the cv's and ball joints and all i was planning on puttin 4.88 gears in the rear end and front to pull em.

i think 37s would fit with some trimming but i mean buddy if you want to do it. if your gonna be happy, do it.

yeah your gonna have epic cv failure more than likely... the rear end should push it if you have the 8.8 for a bit at least, but those are biiiiiig tires. the fisrt time you take it mudding or wheeling expect to limp home or get towed. i think it would look legit minus the 20s, but thats a lot of stress for the stock front end and tranny.

also you might need deeper gears randy has 4.88s and 35s, i would say possibly 5.13s.

My dream is to do a suspension + body lift on 37's and do a diesle swap but that's a little out of my budget at the moment. But you should do it for sure

37s are pushing it and your still gunna be looking at doing alot of trimming, pluc when you hit a bump prob gunna take your fender off. As stated about its going to wreck havoc on the suspension. Major areas thats going to contact is the front bumper/ valance and the front cab corner.

Even with out engaging 4x4 37s are some big rubber to be spinning down the road. Yeah I think you would be better off with some 35s for street driving.

35s with 4.88s thats a good combo, 4.56 is good for 33s.

The 35's are heavy as hell too, I'm already running everything you plan on doing and roatating the tires is a bitch. But I haven't had any issues with any of the suspension, cv axels, or tranny.

35x12.5-20...
