    Going from my 33 swampers to 35's or so.
    Anyone care to give me the down and dirty lift to fit them in?
    The only rule from the bill payer, is she does not want the front fenders trimed. here is the kicker, I hope to fit a crawl box in at the same time so I need roughly 6 inches of wheel base. SOA ? Probably. my biggest question is the rear springs, to use FJ60 and move the hanger back. Will a stock hight FJ40 front spring be pretty close in height? Any Ideas, Ive researched my brain dead to make a decession

    If you want to stay spring under, a 4" lift and trimming the rear fenders will fit the 35's. Skyjacker seems to be the low cost lift of choice.
    SOA, can be done for about the same if you do all of the work yourself. You may still have to trim the rear fenders.
    In either case, I don't think you will have to trim the front fenders.
    As for the gearing, another option that should be avail by the end of the month is the orion t'case by Advance adapters (no affiliation). Cast iron replacement t'case with 4:1 gearing.
