36's on 97 F250

Can 36's fit on an F250 with just maybe a leveling kit. The 35's on f350 thread gave me this idea. I was looking at that green truck with 35's and he looks to have 2-3" more of space to fit a tire. By the way It will be on a 9.75" width rim with 1.5" spacers. Thanks!

I have 35's on my 95 F350 2wd. i had to trim the bumper a little so the lugs on my buckshot mudders wouldnt rub. its a tight fit though. they will rub the bottom of the fender next to the doors before they will hit the top. good luck

I dont mind a little trimming. Surely if you can fit 35's on a 2wd I can fit 36's on a 4wd. Wouldnt you think so?
Thanks man! Nice truck!

Yeah the humvee tires are the ones im gettin off ebay. I have 16.5 in the wheel you have so I dont need the rims they come with. How did you like them? Are they loud?
