35s are doable with a 3in body lift and 3 inch suspension lift + lots of trimming.... The 35s add alot of stress so just be prepared to carry extra parts. Not to mention the re-gear that goes with it... Overall, not worth it in my opinion. 35s and a sas are a way better combo.

work in progress

Thanks guys! I think I'll just run 33s or close to.

Good choice. Valid points by bishop as well. I would definitely have HD tie rod adjusters and an idler arm brace before going up to 33's. The added weight and gain in traction will fold factory tie rod adjusters like twigs quickly on the trails. Ask me how I know this. Lol

This is the kit I am going to run does it have everything if not what else do I need? My plan is to run 33x13.5x15 nitro Mud grapplers on 3.75in backspace.

that's a good kit, several trucks on here are running it...Im in the process of piecing it together for mine right now.... (have the revolvers, still deciding on aal and UCA's)

couple of things to keep in mind with the kit though are:
1: gonna need extended brake lines (sold separately)
2: Some trucks have trouble with the driveshaft hitting the crossmember. (some do, some don't)
3: going to need to extend your rear diff breather ($20 in parts, not bad at all) (DIY on here somewhere)

Now, the wheel and tire combo is where your gonna have problems. 3.75 backspace with 33s is going to cause significant rubbing problems... Snickerdoodle, on here runs that combo buy with a body lift, suspension lift, and lots of trimming. drb runs 33s on wheels with a 4 in. backspace, w/ a body lift, pml, and lots of trimming. Most people elect to run 33s either on stock backspace, or at the lowest 4.75 backspace.

heres a link to those build threads, so you can check out the trimming
