I have IRO front long arms want to go to a bigger tire soon. my question is with enough trimming can I make it work or with them not being able to be lenghtened is that to much?

judging by your lift, you shouldn't have much issue with getting 35's.

Remember, when going from 32's to 35's, your axles will need to be beefed up and you will need to regear. You have the v8 so power wont be an issue, but if you want to keep the close to stock power, Id highly recommend regearing to 4.56.

If you don't have rear adj. arms, you will probably need to get them.

I'm running 33s on the IRO long arms, and I'm pretty close to rubbing in some unfortunate spots. I need to take the BFH to the pinch weld in the front wheel wells, and do some more cutting.

Ya rear controls are a deffent along with some type of adj. upper rears. And regearing is on the to do list as well and I haven't decided on 4.10s or 4.56 probably go with the bigger one but not sure.

When I get around to re-gearing, it's most likely going to be to 4.88s. With 33s and the 545rfe reflash, highway mileage should be around 15 still, but it'll help the crawl ratio as well as pick up some more power for pulling hills. 3.73s are stupid, and I hate them. They're fine on the 02 with stock tires, but the 99 with 33s make me want to stomp babies.

Since the IRO long arms are not adjustable, you will likely have to trim/cut moreso than say with Clayton's b/c you can't push your axle any farther forward. Still, it certainly can be done with trimming.
