First let me start off by saying I am building a set of axles for the truck so it won't remain IFS for longer than ~6 months... Plan is to run 35s on the new axles at first then step up to 37s later on.
Anyway... I found a local guy who wants to trade his 35x12.5x15 MT Baja Claws (radial version) for a set of 33s. He stopped by to look at my Duratracs and he is willing to do a straight across trade for my tires.
I have a 2" BL and a 3+" SL (my rear end is spring over instead of shackles plus AAL). I'd like a rough idea of how much trail carnage I can expect with the 35s and factory IFS. I am hard on the truck but I'm not a skinny-pedal-to-the-floor kind of driver. My front end is marginally beefed up with HD TRAs and an idler arm brace and my diffs will remain open until the new axles go in. I'm hoping I can get away with some moderate wheeling with the 35s without destroying the front end. I will plan on carrying an extra hub or two and the factory TRA as a spare.
Fender cutting is inevitable either now or in a few months, I know this already. I plan to cut my fenders similar to the truck below but with the inclusion of a fender tube tying my front bumper to my sliders (think beginning of an cage):
Who has run 35s on IFS and what do recommendations/warnings do you have for me? Plus if anyone has pics of flex/clearance or what trimming they did, that would be smokin.
