you could fit 33's with no problem. with 35's you would probably have to do some minor triming but it would be worth it because personally i think it looks a whole lot better. the more rubber the better
i just talked to a guy today with a 6" lift w' 35's and i asked him if they rubbed or not. he opened his door to show me the body lift he just purchased to answer the question. he said its not bad but when he is wheelin he cant stand the rubbing
My wheeling bud runs a 99 Z71 like mine (only standard cab) with the Pro Comp 6 inch lift and 35's with no rubbing. He has Master Craft Courser AT's in 315/75. He ran Swampers but they did rub at full stuff because of the side lugz. If you go 6 inches and don't go nuts on tire selection you can run 35's, or you could add a 3 inch body lift and run any set of 36's you wanted.
Ya, you can fit 35's w/ no rubbing and only trim your air dam. That's only if your wheels are no more than 8" wide and You backspacing is no less than 4"
I have a 6" Superlift , 35" BFG's, on 9.75" wide 589's. I did rub at full lock and compression, but w/ minor inner fender trimming (less than 1/2 inch of metal) MT's clear easily, even when offroad. If I had wet w/ 16x8 wheels and 315's(they are a hair shorter than my 35's)I would guarantee no rubbing, and no trimming on my truck.:
I got a bud that has a 01' z71 extended cab and he has a 4 inch rancho suspension and a 3 inch PA body lift and he has 36x14.50 baja belted its a sweet lookin truck and man can i tear a mud hole up, and the only trimming he had to do was on the air dam.
