    Welcome! With the right off set wheels, you can fit 33" tires. If you trim the fenders, I think you can go 34 or 35". Hopefully @OFFGRID or @aggrex can post up.

    Howell fuel injection, header, HEI distributor, TH350, NP208, SOA lift with YJ springs in the front & GW springs in the Rear. AMC20 with G2 1 piece chromos trussed, Dana 30 with G2 chromos and 760x ujoints and MM Stainless Hubs, Geared 4.56. Tom Woods shafts, Metal cloaks, Caged, 37" Toyo MTs.
    33s stock, 35 with flat fenders, 37 with Highline/overline fenders. There may be some rubbing under hard flex on the trails. You will need a wheel with no more than 4.5 inches of back space. If you have factory wheels you will need spacers.

    Welcome Cristian! The @OFFGRID post should have you covered. Recommend to buy top quality wheel spacers like G2 or Spidertrax for best results. Keep in mind the OEM back spacing is 6.25" and although OEM rims look great they will rub something with bigger tires. Got my Spidertrax on BF for a special upcoming project.

    NorthRidge4x4 Black Friday deal for under 100. Always a sale somewhere online but BF is a bit better.
