Is any one out there able to run 38s on a 6 inch lift. Just want to know since I really want to not have the 8" but also dont want to cut out my fenders!

That will not fit without cutting and you'll need back spacers not to rub on the leafs.

Yup, when turning the tire will rub into the back of the inner fender wall... cutting it will buy you the space to run 38's on a 6"...

It will also depend on the tire you choose,...If you want a real wide tire,...your screwed...lol

Like Raul said....I have 41" IROKS on a 4.5" lift...CUT! CUT! CUT! CUT! CUT! CUT!

I have a 6.5 inch lift with 38s. Had to do a little trimming on the wheel wells, and they rub on my leaf springs. I think it looks badass though so I don't mind having to take a few more points on making u-turns haha

It can be done, I did mine w/15.50 wide 38's with just minor un noticable trimming of the inner front fender plastic.

what width and offset rims did you do this with? I want to run 38x15.50 mud grapplers on a 16 rim. I have a 6 inch now but i thought i would have to go to 9.5 to run that wide. Do they rub the leafs any?

What size spacers with what backspacing are you guys running? I'm interested in running 37 or 38's with a little lift without rubbing as well.

I am running 38x15.50 Toyo MT's right now on a little bit more of a 6" lift, I was told it was about 6 1/2" when I bought it. Dont know where that other 1/2"-1" came from but anyways I have 20x9" wheels with a -12 offset and I dont rub on the inner fenders or leafs. I only had to trim a small piece of the thin plastic on the front valance but you cant even really tell. Hope that helps somehow...
