Now gonna be running dana 60 and 14 , so 8 bolt... Not really wanting to cut anything and would like some more opinions on how big a tire I can fit...
And what size wheel is best fo rthe application

Its a 85 Chev short box ( pics in started chev build)thread...In that pic its sitting on 35's on a sacked 4 " lift..

we are gonna do another 6-8 " of lift, full suspension and maybe a 2" body not sure about body

so what can I run and get away with, its not going to be beaten to shit in any way , more of a highyway and DD but it will be wheeled...
Just dont want to start ripping off fenders..

pwer will be fine , running a 454 and t350 on Propane..

so lets hear ur opinions [cheers] [cheers] [cheers]

38's on 8 " of lift no cutting ... may touch front's at full turn stuffed ...

you know your just gonna fuck it up anyways so 6" lift and 40's no touching with cutting hella better ..

and ....

"so lets hear ur opinions"

your a cheap asshole with more attitude than skills ... [cheers]

my opinion is that the t350 aint gonna last long...

i know a baller who's runnin 6" on 40's with fender trim.. trhe best way too go IN MY OPINION..

no fender trim no nbody lift equals..6" and 35's or 8" and 38's with mild rub as B stated

There isn't a real 'for sure' answer. Too many variables, and what works on one truck doesn't on another.

Things that help...narrow rims and or plenty of backspace
Moving the diff forward a little
Stiff front springs
Keep the front sway bar installed.

My old 81 K5 (Heavy's now) I used to run the 40's with sagged 4" springsd and a 1" BL.


The fronts were Rancho's, and I never rubbed anywhere...granted I cut a fair bit of sheet metal.

Then I installed some 6" custom built Alcan's


Diff was moved 1.5" forward, truck was easily 3" taller than before. I twisted it up with a forklift and got 51" under a rear tire before I chickened out. Never did lift a tire. Front tire was firmly jammed into the firewall/floorboard area.

So...what kind of springs are you using? How wide a rim are you wanting? How wide a tire?
