a few questions for a first time ford owner.

Does any one know what the max tire size for these trucks without a lift?
I used to own a dodge and I knew of a guy that put 37" mud tires without a lift and there was no rubbing.
I would like to put 35x12.50 on the stock rim, Possible?

This is the first ford I've owned, I have been told that you can use a lot of the same parts from older trucks to newer ones and vice versa (ie, tailgate, tailights, bed, door handles, etc). is this true?

35x12.5s will fit and rub only very little, 37s are gonna need a lift. Dodges have a bit bigger wheel well on em than the Fords do.

Yes it's true, a lot of the actual hard parts have stayed the same for a while now. You'll want to watch your tailgate though, if you've got a new truck. A lot of the not so honest people out there with the older trucks will steal the new ones because they have Super Duty stamped into them. So lock your tailgate.
