What size tire can I fit?

I am looking to go bigger if I can do it without too much having to be changed. I currently have Nitto Terra Grapplers that are 355/60/20's that measure out at right at 37x14x20. I don't know how much lift I have on it right now because I bought the truck with the lift. The tires are no where near touching anything. Here are some pictures to help everyone help me. I want to go up to 40's on 22's if possible.
Thanks in Advance!

40's would most definitely rub on that....maybe if you put up what your lift consists of we may be able to tell you how to render your problem and get it up a little more....than you'll be able to fit those 40's! good luck bud, nice truck!

I don't know exactly what size the lift is. It is a Superlift kit though. It has drop radius arms, coils only with no spacers, stacked blocks in the rear, traction bars that look like Farm Boys. I have been looking at adding a 2.5 coil spacer on the front and Sky Manufacturing shackle reversal kit that gives 4.5"s and getting rid of one of the blocks. I don't know if that would work though.

umm when you put it that way I don't see why not, but I would suggest getting 6" rear leaf springs instead of stacked blocks...you'd be just about perfect than.

Yeah, I am trying to get rid of the stacked blocks. They came on the truck when I bought it. It rides great right now that is why I was thinking about getting rid of the stacked blocks and reversing the shackle. I would then only have the factory F350 block on there with the 4.5 lift from the shackle and however much lift the add a leaf is giving me. If I went the leaf spring route, which company do you guys recommend? Nice truck by the way man! What size wheels and tires do you have on there?

I would go with a 6" icon spring in the rear and the sky shackles that'd give you 10.5" you wouldn't even need a block at all. as for your front springs....I also recommend upgrading them, the superlifts will sag over time and if it hasn't done it yet it will soon....you can use the brackets just upgrade soon....ICON springs are the best. you can get the icon coils, 2.5" spacer, 6" icon rear springs, 4.5" sky shackle and have it completely done to clear your 40's.

Thanks man I appreciate it, mine are 24x12 on 37x13.50.

it rides pretty rough since there's no sidewall........but it sure is purdy LOL

Thanks for the advice on this. Now all I have to do is find everything I am looking for so it will be waiting on me when I get home. I have a few months to find everything I need. I will post pictures as soon as it is done with all the new parts. Wheels, tires, lift, gauges, steps, tailgate, tail lights, fog lights, grill, and maybe some more stuff. Thanks again!

yeah I know where you're comin from with that. check out iconvehicledynamics.com they have everything, or trucktoyzperformance.com they are an awesome company to deal with!!! I get home next week and hoping my truck is going to be waiting for me...as of right now it's not lookin like it's gonna happen, the body shop still has it. I play on ebay for 90% of the stuff on my truck.....where you located at when you get back in the states? might be able to lend a hand with everything when you get back.

I am in Georgia just north of Atlanta. I haven't bought anything but the gauges as of right now. I already put the SCT on it with Innovative Extreme Street tune. I have a full exhaust with 3.5 down tube, 4" straight pipes with no kitty or muffler. It runs great and has enough power for me for right now. This is my first diesel and it is my dream truck. I am trying to not break the bank on doing everything to it but still get 40's on it. My wheels and tires only have 3k miles on them and I already want to go bigger. Anyway, the whole saying "never enough" fits me and my vehicles. I will keep updating the site as I find parts.
