This guy has 9" lift and even with 35's they look like they almost don't fit:




Of course, that might just be me. But with a 9" lift AND trimming, you might be able to squeeze on 37's, or they might fit with ease

yeah i think with 6.5" lift youd be better off going with 35's, still prolly going to need trimming, def not 37's tho.

Hey, i'm the guy with 9" and 35's... If i wanted to run 37's it would be possible for street driving, but there is no way it would work well for the trail... However, enough cutting and you can fit anything.

In the 2nd pic posted, if you look close you can tell i have cut my flares and raised them about 3 inches( look at the fender lines), along with stretching them a little front to rear to increase possible wheel travel.

You could easily fit them on there with some trimming. My roomate runs 35's with 4" lift on his XJ.

I am running a mixed lift using rusty's 6.5 coils. I have a liberal trim, and I would not even think of 37's. I have thought about 35's, but that would require me to use bump stops and change a few things. So I will stay at 33 until I go LA.. then there is no telling how big I will go.

The key to fitting tires, is bump stops, and trimming. If you are not afraid to hack your ride to death, then you should be able to fit what you want.

I suppose You could flat bed the truck and really cut your fenders or even remove them and you could clear what you want. Bumpstopping would be a most though. It all depends on what you are going to use it for. 37's would be huge, when you figure in how much lift it would take to clear them. I know with my setup, and 33's I am almost 2' of the ground to my frame.
