Just picked this beast up, has a 6' lift and wondering what's the max tire this would fit?
35 without trimming I'm thinking, and if I trimmed what could I get in there?
Cheers

Problem is the front. That bumper is pretty solid and sticks way into the wheel well. I wouldn't go bigger than 36 without removing that bumper and moving your axle Centerline forward. Easiest way to put some real tires on it is to pull the lift and sell it and put in a solid axle. And done.

well with an ifs 6" lift and a 3" body with some minor trimming, including trimming the front bumper, you can do 38.5s, that being said if its ifs I wouldn't run anything bigger than a 35, ive got 37s on mine and want to go back to a 35.
