You aint gonna find a 40 in a 12.50 width. Yer gonna be in the 14.50 and up zone. To run with the 40 dawgs, yer lookin at a 3" body lift and some Bushwacker cut out fender flares along with yer lift at the very least. Even that prolly wont be enough to stuff the 40's. Then the gears, then the weak links in the drive train if yer gonna let the dawgs run off road..........
35's to 40's is a big step. both in size, mods and cash.

To really have fun with the 40's, Dana 60's front n rear would be my choice.
yeh im deff. revampin the whole thing solid fron axle swap then see if i cant rig up a bigger suspension lift n put about a 4 in body under there and of course ima run dana 60's its theonly way to go lol and yeh i got a 6.0 vortec max i just had the badges deleted cuz i didnt like em lol but if it comes down to it i mite swap for a deisel cuz i justlove em lol my family's been in the auto buisness for a long time and now we own a local newspaper well we've had it since 1882 so money isnt tht much of an obstacle lol plus my marines checks so yeh money wis im set i just want a bad ass off road machine built outa a new fullsize to show em how i roll lol
