    Another popular thread from that other site. Would like to start it fresh on here now.


    Here's what's up. Essential this is a roll call for all who are running tire sizes from 34.5 to 35.5 tires. This is for other members that are interested in going to 35" to reference easily and understand what it takes.

    The "loose" guidelines.

    1. Tire size 34.5" to 35.5"
    2. Tell us the lift your running
    3. Tell us how much you trimmed
    4. Provide us the wheels you used and provide the offset
    5. What gear ratio your using
    6. Let us know if there is any rubbing like frame rub, etc.
    7. Have fun. Remember this is a reference for others whom maybe interested in a set up like yours. Please provide factual information and photos.

    Note: post your info and photos has a reply to this thread and I will update the O.P. has we go along.

    Time to get started. Here are some that I know are on 35's now. Hopefully they post a pic.

    OE Titan 17x8.5 wheels

    Stock 3.69 gears now. Going to 4.56s soon.

    1.5" spacers to convert the lugs to 6x5.5

    2" lift with standard length Radflo's and PRG lift shackles.

    2" body lift.

    Melt mod like a crazy person.

    Front fenders cut back to the edge of the sliders.

    There wasn't any rubbing until one of my fender liners broke and now needs to be replaced.

    I want to go bigger next time. But I don't know how.

    It's completely streetable. 6th gear is useless on the road. Definitely feels undergeared off road.

    Bunch of us are on 35’s.

    Titan swap, 2” BL, 315/75r16 nitto trail grapplers. 4.56 in an automatic. 4” Alcans with PRG shackles on lowest setting. 2” wheel spacers on the rear axle.

    Never rub the front (but come very very close to rubbing the top of the wheel well). Rub slightly in the back at full stuff (plastic to the rear of the wheel well). Not enough to change anything to fix it. Not an issue.

    Cut to the inner line, folded to the outer line

    Good thread, a possible goal of mine. Should the minimum gearing be 4:10 and with the added weights front locker required?

    I like the 4:10s. Definitely would not recommend 4:56's. I think 3:90s would be perfect for folks that drive a lot on the highway. Doing the math. 3:78 gearing would be equal to a stock gear for 35's.

    I prefer open front diff. I would save that money and put towards a winch instead (if you don't have one). Front lockers rarely are needed and when they are, it comes with significant cv breakage possibilities. 1 pro the locker is it replaces the stock carrier with a stronger one. That's awesome, just couldn't justify the price for me. Rear locker and winch can get you anywhere.
