8" really? I'm going with a -44 offset. I was told 2.5 level will clear 35's do I really need to go 8" for 38's?

You can clear 35's on stock.. as long as the offset isnt too much.. A 3-3.5" leveling kit/lift will clear 37's... so You could possibly get away with a 6".. but a 7-8" would be for good measure..

Good company to get lift and Trac bars from? Like I said -44 offset. I want perfect fit without too much open space.

Re: What do I need to fit 38's?

I'd rather keep it reasonable. But I don't want the axle to creap or too bad of a trek. And to avoid that I'll pay.

-44 is an aggressive offset, I'm assuming you're going with a 12-14" wide wheel and 38x15.5" tires? If that's the case, an 8" lift won't technically be enough to clear at full lock. But you can trim to make it clear

You are correct 12" wide. Trim what exactly to make it fit?
