      Depending on the backspace, 14.5" is a really wiiide tire for being 35" tall (in comparison, my maxxis trepador 40"s is only 13.5" wide). That might require beating the crap out of the corner of the cabin (near the feet area of the driver/pass). Also, it might rub on the sway bars and whatever else is down there. Here is JEFE's thread on fitting 35" but this is only a 12.5" wide tire: http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=48173

      yea i already have my fenders cut from when i just had the 3'' bl and 33's....my rims are a 4 in backspacing... i would go with a 12.50 but to use the 15's i have, the only size the 35 grappler comes in is 14.5. why do i need a grappler? because i love tire noise and nasty looking side walls. :D lol i will say that i have never gotten stuck with the mud rovers..
