Depending on wheel width/offset, 40's will be very hard to get to clear on an 8" lift. Good luck!

With the wheels and tire combo you will have to do lots of trimming or just drive in a straight line

I'm on 8" lift 38x15.5 and 20x14, I had to trim quite a bit and fold over inside fender and fender liner had to be modified a lot to look factory.

Another 2" tire would be very very difficult without destroying the fender and bumper

Looks like we have the same fuel wheels, do you think its the 15.5 and the offset?

I'm shooting for 12's on 12's hoping to clear, I'd like to see pics of your work if possible.

it will with one point of contact

nothing worse than shredding rubber because you have bigger rubber than lift

but these trucks are hard to please at the front wheel well for sure

hell I have an 8 inch and I can rub 35's during a hard turn and bump
