1967-72 4x4 with 6” lift -35s or 37s?

Hey anyone got pics of 67-72 trucks with 6” lift with 35s or 37s? I’m trying to get an idea of what my truck may look like with either tire. I’ve seen lots of trucks with 35s but I haven’t seen many with 37s.

37" is tight on these trucks with 6" lift. 35" is tight with 4". I had 37/12.50-16.5s on 8.25" wheels I was planning to run on my '72 K2500 with 6" lift. I think that would have worked but rubbed a little. I sold that stuff and got a 4" lift to mount 35/12.50s on 9.75" wheels. The tires ended up being too old so I went with 285/75-16s, smaller than what you want. The 35s would rub with the wider wheels. I think 8" would be fine

35/12.50-16s on 10" wheels with 6" lift

Nice thanks 👍. Yeah I keep thinking 35s but then I see beadblasters truck and those 37s look good! Y’all have some awesome trucks and I’m a long ways away but I’m excited for the journey!

Lift height claims by companies vary so much. Hard to believe there's only a 2" difference between Beadblaster's 6" lift with 37s and my old truck with 4" lift and 37s (and cut fenders/bed). Those are 15" wheels, if you are sighting the body with the top of wheel.

My truck does not have a consumer built lift kit. The springs are atlas progressive springs,fronts are 52” with 6” of lift while the rear are 64” with 4” lift and a shackle flip. The front springs have come down a bit with the weight of the engine ect. Probably 1 “ height difference from front to rear. The rims are a 17x8 with 4” backspace
