you can run almost any size tire on pretty much anything. but do you want to trim the fenders? I dont think they would fit with out triming.

you can run any tire size....sawzall makes anything fit...

give us something to work with. Generally, 40's DO NOT belong on a ranger that isn't axle swapped front and rear...

nah, skyjacker makes an 8" for any of the ttb rangers... so gen 1,2, and 3. but if he has a gen 3 with that he could prolly get em to fit without using a sawzall. i wouldn't run a tire that big on a d35 front.

what gears are ya gonna put in? how about motor size? tranny? do ya know what axles you have?

i'm gonna be running 37's on my truck with a 6" suspension and 3" body lift. but i wouldn't go any bigger period on the d35 front end.

Believe me, Cory's got way more than 11". More like 13" suspension PLUS the 3" bodylift.
