42s with 10.5" of lift?

Can I do this? there 16.5 american eagle wheels, and they stick out pretty far so im not worried about hitting the leaf springs when i turn, but am I going to rub bad on the fenders with this setup?

Also, on the topic of 42s, 42" super swamper sx2 or 42" pitbull rockers? which is better

Can't give you any advice, but I sure do want to see a picture when it's done. Sounds like a wild lookin set up.

you should be fine. I have a 3.5 inch lift on my f350 and i run 35s and could fit 37s without even rubbing . 10.5 inches of lift is a beast of a lift on a 3/4 or 1 ton truck. i dont think you would have problems with rubbing and if you do you can always fabricate the fenders a hair. IMHO i dont like interco tires. if you dont plan to off road the truck often it is a big waste of money. they ride terrible and they will last you 6 months lol. you can get an all terrain radial in that size, and they look bad a**. Its your money and if thats what you like go for it. def want to see pics when its complete

ill definitely post some pics whens its done.. who makes a 42" all terrain? i like the pitbull rockers because there affordable, the biggest all terrain i can find is a 40" tire for over $450, and I cant find one for a 16.5" rim.

i know bfg makes a 42. im not sure on the 16.5 rim. how much did you find the swampers for???? I know a guy that put a set of 42 inch pit bulls on a dodge 2500 v10 and he said he would never buy them again. I know of some bigger radials but not sure on the rim size. i will look and if i find anything, will post back
