I did the BBK upgrade last month and can confirm that 17" rims clear no prob.

That thing is BEAUTIFUL!!
The craftsmanship is top notch!!

@Lucky51 - I hate to say it but terrye is right! As nice is this one is, unless you do the work yourself, it's not worth paying someone for all those hours of work...compared to buying a yakima or thule off the shelf. :D

There were maybe 4 others over the years that have posted pics of their rigs on 35's but who knows if they're still on the road or not. I really like the 35's over any of the smaller sized tires I've run. Almost seems like the gearing on my truck was meant for 35's!! Yeah post some pics of the Utah ...

Stronger CV Axle Shafts

Need to replace both front CV Axle Shafts because of badly torn boots.

Should I just go OEM or does someone make a bigger/stronger one?
