View Full Version : tire clearence

I just got a 3/4t F250 and was wondering if my truck could clear 35X12.5 BFG mudders w/ a 3" body lift. i know they will fit, but steering and travel wise, will they rub?

It's an 88, and kind of all purpose, but more mud. I love mud, always have. may have seen my van up at stave iu was up there( and ggot stuck) quite a bit. it was brown, ugly, and free. but i think if they do rub i might just hack the fenders, we are makin new bumbers anyways.

one more question, is it possible to take the posi set-up out of a straight axle dana 44 and put use it to convert my front end to posi? i believe it's a dana 44 as well, from what i was told, haven't really searched any numbers yet.

88 I'm guessin it's a ttb still? I'm pretty sure you can, the interals are the same. You will have a 44 in your truck and as long as you getting the peices out of a 44 you should be good.
