Pic request: 37's & a 3.5" lift

I was looking at my truck today, which has 35's and a 3.5" lift, and I was thinking if I cut the fenders to the body line 37's would fit.

So I would like to see if anyone else is running 37's with a 3.5" lift and NO BODY LIFT

'75 Bronco- 3.5" Super Lift, 35" Goodyear MTR, NP 435, Detroit rear, 4.11's, 9500# winch, Taurus fan, Carter 4070 fuel pump, Magnaflow exhaust
'84 Bronco II- 4" Skyjacker Class II lift, Bushwacker flares, 35" M/T's, Autolite 2100 carb, 3 core radiator, 4-pt roll cage, 8.8" rear

Believe me it will fit if you center it and cut flares up to body line.....

Next build I will do just that.... Low COG with big meats....

You'll have to modify the inner fenders as well if you're planning on stuffing 'em.

I have 37 and a 3 1/2'' lift but I also have a body lift of 3 inches. So that counts me out.

I've got 35s on a 3 1/3 inch lift. The fronts are probably ok, but the rears rub on the inner fenders. It will take more than cutting to the body line IMO.

I would imagine they also lengthened the wheelbase, swapped in some 1-ton units, hydro-assist steering, etc. It doesn't really appear like it in the pics though. She does look bad arse.

37's 3.5 inch lift and 1 inch body lift. I think it will work. I may just have to trim a little more of the inner fender than I did for the 35's.

Thanks for all the responses. My Bronco actually has ~4.5" of lift in the rear, so I am more worried about the front.

I have seen the cage Bronco, and it's cool, but that is a bit bigger than I want to go , thanks though.

ProjectBronco70, your truck looks good, but I would really like to see an actual picture of a bronco on 37's with only 3.5" of lift. Thanks though.

I guess what I'm really wondering is if I can get 37's of with just more cutting, and not have to reconstruct custom inner fenders.

It'll roll down the road OK, but you'll catch the leading and trailing edges of the wheelwells front and rear at full stuff on the trail. It sounds horrible, and will cut the lugs. I hammered mine flat at one point, but they still drug. The tire's just too darned big for that little wheelwell. Anything larger than a 33 will catch at full stuff if you don't have some wacky long bumpstops.

I ran 38's with a 2" BL and stock springs in the rear, and some buggered up 3-1/2"'s in the front (sat pretty level though, go figure)

No cutting needed. 37's with a 3 1/2'' lift. Ok so there is a 3'' body lift too.

3.5" suspension lift, 2" body lift, and a bit of fender trimming. I also removed my inner fenders. These are 36 X 13.5 X 15 IROCs that measure like 37" tires. They are 36.8" in diameter.

I also have 3" backspacing on my rims. Except rubbing on the radius arms at full lock, I do not rub.
