    Yup, if you look where the box is, you can see where I just had to cut a little bit of the fenderwell out. I also ended up having to cut off these tab like things from both sides because they ended up rubbing. Anytime that I'm wheeling fairly hard and the tire is pushed back at all, it still rubs right next to the lower left hand corner of the green box in the picture on both sides, so I need to take a sawzall to it but haven't had the time. If you were to go with anything bigger than 33x12.50's or anything more than a 15x8 rim (15x10 for example) you would rub the hell out of your fenders with just the 5.5" lift.

    Micky T makes a 34 as well. The baja belted comes in 34 14.50. that's gonna be the tire i run on my 99 after i put the body lift in. I run a 33 13.50 with the superlift 4" lift at the moment so maybe a 5.5 with a 3" body on your truck you could run a 35 or that 34. Plus Micky T tires seem to be slightly smaller than they say, kinda wierd.

    i can't post a pic but here's the link to the site, i know it's a 99 but they make a biger lift for your truck so maybe it'll give you an idea.

    Chut16,

    Let me know your timeline on this project. Removing the Superlift 5.5 with extended radius arms, superunner steering, Rancho 9000's and all from the Nav in a few weeks. Sits on 33's with 15x8's no problem. You could check it out if you're in Denver ever as it sits assembled. All the parts are in great shape and I'll be a motivated seller.
    PM or email me.:cool:
