Unless you are planning on gears and new axels dont wheel it. Too big for stock running gear and not much gain in ground clearance IMO . Please do a little research,so many expensive avoidable mistakes are talked about in the forums.

I put 40 18.5s on once upon a time MT Baja Belted scored for $400 and broke my trans driveline an exhaust and several other parts . It looked cool but i paid in the end. Just friendly advice.

Not positive but you either will have to trim the wheel wells or get a 3 inch body lift to fit.

When I got my new rig it came with 6 inch lift & a 3 inch body lift with 37's on it.

Now I got rid of the 37's, next is to get rid of the 3 inch body lift. I may try the 37's on later down the road after I pull the body lift just to see if they fit.

I got 6" lift with 38's, but I have cutout fender flares. Without the cut outs, they would be rubbing big time.

sure they'll fit with a 6 inch lift, but they will rub like hell under any kind of compression and forgetting about making really tight turns..unless you trim the fenders..ask me how I know..
