Take the free tires, if they are in good condition. This will save you 800-1000. Then take it to a body shop to cut the fender professionally, then 200 body lift that Jersey Parts is selling RIGHT NOW.

Done.

You sure they are 17's *the 35's*

Not mislead with the bodylift, but the fenders would still need some trimming. 21SF is on track with what I meant, and a body shop had better be able to do a good job with the trimming. By saving on the tires you could pay for the trimming and BL, plus get a set of sliders, or some skid plates.

The simplest would be tried and true, 285-70-17, which is roughly a 33" tire. It will fit with only the melt mod which you have already done.

Meh ... plenty of folks have gone to 35s on stock gearing. While I happen to agree with you, that it would probably be *better* to gear the axles, as well, if one's going to that size tire ... it's not a *requirement*.

Besides, if the OP has an SE (and I assume an AT, as well) then his stock gears are 3.13:1 ... that means that going to a 3.36:1 is relatively cake, by getting some car-part.com diffs ... as opposed to, say, my case of being 3.69:1 stock and having only aftermarket options to gear deeper.
