Couple days too late, I got them, the tires aren't that great but I'll run them for this summer at drop down to a 55 or 50 when I need new tires, the rims are in great/good shape, no scrapes just a few little bubbles but youd never see them

They are the petal leaf like silver has, and I tried it on the back because that has the two inch blocks and it got but yea it was a little big. I still need the front leveling kit. But now that I found the Monroe quick strut, I know they aren't the ranchos which I wanted but I just don't have the money to pay for a shop to put them on, which the markup and labor, it's just too much, so I'm getting the parts by the end of the month, Friday I start a 10 day trip to myrtle beach so I can't work on the truck. Yes I know the rules but they aren't on the truck so that should be a loop hole, but I'll get a picture of the rims and tires on the ground if pleases the forum haha

Yes, you're right about that. Also...

With JUST Performance Accessories' 3" body lift and leveling kit:
-35" tires will clear (315/75/16) with front and rear fender trimming

With JUST Jack My Ride's suspension lift (no body lift):
-33" tires with 4" backspacing or less and 17" or larger wheels (18+ is best)...no fender trimming required

With JMR's suspension lift AND 3" body lift:
-35" tires recommended to look best/normal
-35" tires with 17"+ wheels and 4" or less backspacing (18"+ wheels are best)...no trimming required
-with minor front and rear fender trimming, 37" tires will fit

This is the usual spot for 'minor trimming' for the front tire when going with larger tires.
Rear tires should not require any trimming for slightly larger tires. Going too big would also require serious cutting of the front splash guards and front bumper fascia, which could get ugly.

The green line is what I had to trim off of my front splash guards, the bottom has an angle of about 45 degrees.
The yellow line is what I had to trim off of the front wheel well liners, both front & back sides, for the front tires.

Thanks, I think I'll prolly end up with minor trimming of the splash and If it rubs, well it'll rub, and I may space the front bumper out inch , because when I get smaller tires I'd still like to have a inner fender

dont mean to sound rude, or say someones wrong but
i have a 2008 Dakota STILL STOCK and i have 285/7R16's under her..... and i know there's no additions to her bcuz i bought it brand new and i just bought those tires before i deployed...
since i've been deployed i bought new 17x9 wheels with Federal Couragia M/T's 285/70R17 im probably gonna have to trim now bcuz i went a size bigger on the wheel but kept the tire size
