Here she is in all her glory. I will get better pictures when the snow melts. Really happy with this build! I feel like I could have pushed for 35s but the 315/70/R17 KO2s equate to 34.4" in diameter so close enough I suppose ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Required a crash bar delete but that was it for now. I plan to trim the wheel well liner since there is some minor rubbing going on when the wheels are fully turned. Does anyone have suggestions for caloborating the odometer? It would be great to have my mileage calculated properly.
most manufacturer labeled 35" tires usually measure 34.5" anyway, so I wouldn't take that 34.4" into too much consideration.

but very cool they fit with so little extra work!

Thanks! The KO2s are pretty quiet considering their size, so that's definitely a plus. Probably going to invest in some lighting upgrades and some Fox 2.0s in the near future.

I saw you said 3" lift. Was it a lift or a level? Curious what you did in the rear. Thanks!

I installed the 3" levelling kit from ReadyLIFT. I plan to upgrade to a full Eibach suspension lift next year when I have the cash. I was going to add 1" blocks in the rear but decided against it, I like the look of the truck as is and I'm not planning on doing much towing until the summer.

i have the fox 2.0 with icon delta joint UCA- i made 285/70/17's Nitto Ridge Grapplers work well with Crash Bar Delete. Maybe the BFG K02's run slimmer than the Nitto's because theres no way i could fit a 34+ tire without serious turning issues.

Can we get more pics of this sweet machine? I want to see front tire clearance, it will help me decide on size for mine.
Thanks!

Thinking about getting a set of 35/12.5/17 or possibly 35/10.5/17.

Anyone else here running a 35” tire? I have a 34” tire now and I have about 3/4-1” of clearance across the range when flexed out.

Ive already replaced the crash bars and the truck is at 3” of lift in the front and 2” in the back.

Kenda makes a 10.5” wide tire that might fit nicely.

Thinking about doing this to my ranger. So you just had to cut the crash bars? You said minor rubbing at full lock what about when at full articulation? I'm debating between running 35x12.5r17 or 33x12.5r17

I’d love to know if 34s or 35s rub at full articulation. My 33s have zero rubbing in any position but I’d love to go up in size when it’s time for new tires.
Edit: Nvm, found the answer in Andy's thread. Planning to go up to 285/75-17 on the next go. 1.1" bigger without having to go down to 10.5" width.

So if 285/75/17 fit do you think a 305/70/17 would fit without rubbing at articulation? The 305s are about an 1” wider

I wish I could help but I'm going strictly off the information in another thread and it doesn't have any testing info with 305s. If I had to guess, you would have rubbing with articulation with that size tire. However, if you're wanting that wide of a tire then presumably you don't do any heavy wheeling so articulation may not be much of an issue.
