Can 37's fit with a body lift and level/block kit?? 5" of lift?
 
I have an 03 and am picking it up today finally.I know for sure I want to do 35" Trail Grapplers,since all I seem to need is a level kit.But what if I did a 2.5" level kit and blocks or shackles in the back with a 3" body lift?Could I get 37x12.50's under it with a -12 offset wheel?Here is a pic of my truck,it appears to have factory style flares,I don't know if they will help or hinder the fitment though.

Now I know these tires are gonna overwhelm my 4.7,so I would re-gear. But I wanted to see if I could get enough clearance with this lift.
I figure if a level kit will clear 35's,3" more with a body lift will make it no problem.Do I have it wrong?I am not against trimming to make them fit,but I don't wanna have to hack it up.
Also,blocks or lift shackles for the rear?
I don't want to do a full suspension lift at this time that is why I am considering going this route.Opinions please :smileup:

i seriously doubt it but idk if they will fit im gonna put 37 on mine!!

It will be tight and I'd measure the offset and backspacing you need to make sure the -12mm will give you clearance at full steering lock.

I am certain 35's will work with the mods you have planned but not sure about the 37's. I'd measure how much clearance you'd have with those mods in relation to a 37" tire.

Why not go with a 5 or 6 inch suspension lift? There would be no problems with that method.

I can get you a deal on a suspension lift.

i dont think 37 will fit...depends on how wide of tire you want too....maybe a 35.5 or 36.

That sounds like a good plan!

Good advice gentleman,thanks! I picked her up today and wow oh wow the 4.7 is already severely underpowered.You guys think it's just tired with 110k on the clock?I know I am used to a 500+whp daily driver but darn.
It is extremely clean so it leads me to believe that it was taken care of,but a tune up is in line regardless.
I know I am gonna hate driving it with larger tires!I'm gonna have to do it all at one time,gears included.
I may just settle on 35's,not 100% just yet though.I was going this route with the lift because it looks like I can get the body lift with gap guards,new keys and block for under $800.For a 6" suspension lift,it looks to be double that maybe more.
Am I looking in the wrong places?Big horn,can you PM me some info?I cannot initiate Pm's yet.Thanks and keep the thoughts coming!

BIGHORN can you pm me some info about the BDS 5" lift

BigHorn 4 Life 12-31-2010 09:42 PM

Welcome to the Z bro here is my e-mail nicely412@yahoo.com.I don't think I can pm you sence you have 1 post.I will e-mail you right back.

I dont think with the 5" lift that the 37" tires will fit. You will be able to fit the 35" tires without any worries with that kinda lift. I think that might be your best bet buddy
