    8 in. of lift? You could probably go with 37's if you want. 35's should be no problem.

    You'll clear them. Easy. However, you might end up having some issues. IFS is know to have issues with tires over 35inches. I know a few people who run 37's with IFS, and he's pushing it. His CV Angles are Horrible. And he has 17inch wheels.

    With 37inch tall tires, and 20inch wheels, your looking for problems. That's alot of tire, and a lot of wheel for IFS to handle. Not to mention the 10 bolt rear.

    As long as you don't plan to beat the living crap out of your truck, and just keep it on the streets, 35's and 20's will be fine for you. As long as you don't plan to go muddin or anything extreme.

    you should check your offsets first because i couldint fit 35's with my 6" susp lift but after i added a 3" body lift they fit with minor trimming

    I have always wondered why these nnbs trucks are so hard and tricky to fit 35's under compared to the late model chevys? I'm guessing the way our fender wells are in the front of the truck is my guess. I will be wanting to upgrade to 35 12.50's sometime late this year or next year. I have some rubbing already with my 33 13.50's but i'm assuming because they are so wide and stuck out a damn good bit upfront. i'm thinking about getting the nitto trail grapplers or nitto terra since the truck would ride allot better and also tires would wear down pretty slow?
