no replies? that's odd around here! I have seen 37s on the 8" kit and I think 40s would fill the wheelwells better IF they don't rub. What offset wheels are you gonna run?

I know you can fit 37's with: 3" coils, stock B.S., and Thuren control arms (not on my rig yet, but soon). 8" lift is a waste of time if you ask me

The downside of running 12.50 or 13.50 width tires on stock rims is how much the tire has to roll over at the sidewall to fit the 8" rim. Bad for wear, bad for sway, bad for towing... OK for rim protection off-road, but it doesn't fall within the tire mfg specs of wheel widths. I ran BFG MT 37x2.50 on 8" wheels and Toyo MT 37x13.50 on 10" wheels and felt a huge difference in handling
