Well i finally sold my dodge 4x4, what a peice... so i ended up buying a 1990 Ford F-150 with a 300 inline 6 cyl. It seems alright.. i just need a set of tires really bad. I'm already thinking of putting a 3" body lift in it..

Oh and for tires i was thinking of mud kings, anyone know where they have them in Kelowna?

So i was just wondering.. how much trimming would be needed on the fenders to fit the 35" after my 3" body lift.....

my f250 will fit 35s with a 3 inch bl and no trimming, yours you might need an inch or 2 of trimming. my friends rubbed harsh with stock wheels and 33x12.5s

check the ttb pivot bushings.........and ball joint etc. then have an alignment done BEFORE you put new tires on it

thanks for the tip.. but really how important is the wheel alignmet.. i heard that the ford dual I beam suspension is hard to keep aligned..

the ball joints wear out and your tires will sit like this / \ and wear unevenly so if you like buying tires then its not important, best to get it aligned man, its not that muhc you could even do it yourself.
