Gunslug, here is a picture of surround.



.com, thanks, I was told that having 37's on a work truck would be tough to live with, and can't be done. I loved it, so I figured I would try it. With no lift it is about the same a a 3 inch and 35's. I'll report back after I have put some time in. I do spend most of my time on the road as well, just a weekend warrior, I too though the look of the XL was so BA.

Gunslug, you should really consider moving the bumper forward, it looks like it would help line up the flair and allow it to be tilted without getting into the fog light.

TTEngineer, have you ever had the Toyo MT. I was worried about the MT before I had them, poor traction in snow, noise, etc. I love this tire! This is why I when the extra mile to make this tire fit.

I'm still fitting the bumper flare, but looking pretty good! 37's look tiny in the big ass flare.

Gunslug, looking great! The flair look great on the stock bumper.

Inline6, I would bet you can do this to your truck. Search for AEV Dave and is camper build. He built a sick 3rd gen ram. Then traded up to the newer body.

I was able to dig up the old photos of the track bar mount that I have to modify for clearance.

You can see the shinny metal where I was rubbing.

Welded up



Painted



Clearance
