Before all of you start saying no it wont fit i want to know from the people who run the 3+3 combo who are running 35in Dunlop Mud Rovers . I know most people say they wont but the Dunlops run about an inch small so its only a 34. Also i do mostly street driving with muddy trails manily....no hardcore crawling or flexing. Will it fit? I know the pinchweld will ahve to be beat to a pulp but how bad will the rubbing be?

People have done this. Unfortunately there was a lot of rubbing (a-arms, frame, body, etc.). People had to trim fenders, a little firewall (not just pinchweld), and take a lot of tupperware off of the bumper.

Edit - I think this was for under 6" total. My mistake. DeMello ran something similiar to this before he SAS'd. A former CO member, moved to CA ran 35's on modified Tundra coils or something without any major issues. He only had a few inches of lift from them too.

I know a guy running this setup, and he doesn't have any issues with it. He might actually chime in about it when he sees this thread. He's got a 3" cornfed and 3" bl. You can see his rig under "members" at KYTTORA.com. His name is Puckett.

I'm running a 3" BL (aka:the devil) with the All Pro Suspension cranked to 2-1/2 to 3" and am running 35" General Grabbers which measure pretty close to a true 35" with 2.75 bs rims. They rub the passenger frame (alignment issues) and they rub while stuffing during wheeling both front and rear. I trimmed a wee bit of the tupperware and slightly beat the pinch weld. For me, it's nothing I can't live with.

Do it, anything is possible. I am running 35" MT/R's and I only have 2+2!!! But yeah I have trimmed the piss out of my truck. But it fits!!!!! And because people will argue, what I mean by fits, is that I have it and I say it fits, so if you have a different deffinition of fits, then keep it to yourself!! To me, it fits and I have wheeled in Moab many a times before....

i have 3+3 and 35 bfg's, it works fine for me after the pinch weld mod and a little front bumper valence trimming, go for it, i've even got a little frontend sag and they still fit fine and also i rub when fully turned left on the frame, but no big deal, also rub when flexed out, but not bad at all, doesn't hurt anything so i dont care

Mike, thanks for your help with the AZ land bureau
I just bought the ALLPRO rear lift kit and A-Arms, too
I just installed the rear lift, OMG !!!!!!!!!!!
I am going to install the new upper A-Arms as soon as I get my SAW's sent to Ryan
I just bought some used 35" Goodyear Wrangler MTR's from OZ TACO and I am def rubbing, OUCH!!!
Do you have your ALLPRO coilovers cranked fully?
I intend to crank the SAW's al the way and am adding stiffer Tundra coils, hopefully that will help.
I can't wait till March!!!

Hey Bob,
I wasn't able to speak to anyone at the State Land office last week, I am going to get a hold of someone for sure this week if I have to go down there and reach over the counter to do so.lol I saw another post that you had bought the rears, hopefully you like them as I do. My front is about 80-85% cranked, I still have more. Actually the rear tires seem to rub more than the fronts. It is certainly nothing I can't live with out. My concern is more for my rack, 3+ yrs of wheeling has about killed it. I think the SAS will be in the works before it gets too hot here, we'll see though. A few of us ran a trail today that was quite fun and challenging (rated a 4+ on a scale of 5). Less than about a mile long and it took us 4hrs with four trucks, weeeeeeee it was fun.

I have that exact setup. My rear will stuff all the way up without touching anything, and with the swaybar connected, I don't hit up front either. Swaybar disco'd=friendly rubbing. I bashed the crap out of the pichweld and I run 3.75in BS. I also trimmed the plastic a bit in the front wheel well and I have no complaints.
