    Looks great. Do you have any pictures from the side showing how much the tires stick out?

    2.5 lift on -12 offset on 35x12.5x30?! How in the world?! My 3inch lift with POSITIVE 18 offset on 305/55/20(33.39x12.6x20) barely fit. I mean 1/8 inch clearance.

    looks fantastic! i see fender flares in your future lol.
    i do have one question that always comes up in my mind when i see these trucks on 35's... i'm curious how much impact the extra diameter and weight made on your truck's acceleration and overall liveliness? there is a definite reason other than cost that auto makers put light, smallish rubber on brand new vehicles.

    Damn, that's a good looking truck.
    What all did it rub? there is no way in hell even my size tires would fit with an extra inch of offset.
    did you say -12 or +12?

    automakers in my eyes do research to figure the cheapest most efficient way out on the majority of vehicles...now with the 35s on this thing, if I need to remind myself of the power/acceleration it has I step on it...I'm sure little gas milage will be lost but it's fine drives fine tires are amazingly quiet..it's still very lively trust me no love lost..well except a supercharger or twin ball bearing turbo's :)

    -12 and it only rub on the lower underside of the actual bumper so I'll be cutting that at an angle or bending it and also rub a little behind the wheel which isn't a big deal the bumper rub is more important..will post pics soon..

    4" FabTech Suspension Lift with Dirt Logic, Amp Research Power Step, 20" x 9" XD Grenades Rims, 35 X 12.5 x 20" Nitto Grappler G2s.
    Okay..my first post here. I just bought a 2010 Tundra 4x4 and had my shop install a 4" FabTech Suspension Lift with Dry Logic Coil overs and Shocks and an Amp Research Power Step and they put on 20 X 9 with Zero Offset XD Grenades on 285x65x20 BF Goodrich KO2s. The tires look too narrow and these pictures of "racin's" rig are just what I need. The tire shop said they'd swap out with 35x12.5x20 Nitto Grappler G2s. Problem is...is that they already rub with slightly against the edge of the frame. My shop wants to cut about 1/2 inch out of the edge of the frame and weld in a plate to increase the clearance. Any thoughts? I want the big, fat, tires and can raise the coil over up at least another 1" to help. Thanks for your input...

    Yes, the 4" Suspension Lift was installed yesterday and they put the new tires and rims on and they look pretty narrow...hesitant to cut the frame. The tire store ordered up the Grapplers to switch out at no charge...not sure what to do. I want the big fat tires but don't want to jeopardize the structural integrity of the vehicle.

    what it sounds like you should do is get the @Relentless cab mount chops and i think that will fix your problem
