the TSL 36 x 14.5 x 16.5 are right at 36 inches tall. i think it would be too tight with only 5 inches of lift - i do not know how far back the 5–inch skyjacker will pull the axel. the 36 x 14.5 x 15s are only 35.6 inches tall. but even these would be tight. i don’t know what your budget looks like; but before i spent the cash on tires, i would put on the 3 inch body lift and then get the tire that you will be happy with for several years.... if this is not an option, i think you are better off with a “tall” 35 inch tire.

It might be close with jsut a 5" and that wide of a tire. If they don't fit, then install the 3" body lift :):

The height of the tires won't be a problem, and with the body lift they will definitely clear. Are you getting flares with those?

Per Skyjacker, thier lifts accomodate up to a 36" tire...

It would be too tight for me to want to drive it. why not stay with the BFG or Procomp MT.???? the 36's suck for street use.

If I had my choice between a 35 BFG or Procomp and 36 swamper I would take the 35's without a doubt, 1" is not much of a differnece in height on the truck, but there is a huge differnce between driving on BFG's or Procomps and Swampers, I personally would sacrifice a 1/2" of ground clearence for nice riding tires, unless your gonna wheel the dog piss out of the truck.

Its not the height that is going to be the problem its the width. Go with a 16in rim and youll be better off because of the offset.

ramraptor,
i have a 5" skyjacker w/rear springs and a 3 inch body lift. i put a leveling kit on the front and an add-a-leaf in the rear. i'm running 38.5x14.5 16" thornbirds on 16x10 inch wheels, and they don't really ride that rough unless they are really cold. oh yeah i don't have any problem with rubbing. :lol: i think that i could of possibly run 42 inchers. maybe in the future when these tires wear out.
