What size tire for a 6" lift on 2wd

I'm wondering what size tire I could actually put under there with the lift... Fabtech says that the 6" lift on a 2wd would fit 315/70-17 (about 34.5") with minor trimming. I know a 6" on a 4wd would easily fit those 35's, but Ford specs show that mine is about 2-3.5 inches shorter than a 4x4...who knows

Besides the obvious question as to why lift a 2wd, I think you should be able to clear those bad boys and if you don't... start looking at saw blades.

The reason the 4x4's can clear larger tires is because they already sit up about 2" higher in the front then the 2wd's. Reason? In 4x4 you need ground clearance, in 2wd trucks that doesn't really matter since they shouldn't be offroad.

I wasnt planning on offroading-I just hate the fact that the 2wd sits so beepbeepbeepbeep low. Ive had lifted 4x4s in the past and it just felt better having a truck that sits tall. I doubt I'll even do it bc I was always the guy to give lifted 2wds a hard time in the past Just my thought process
