37" Goodyear MTR military take offs with no lift!

Last night I helped a friend put some 37" MTRs on his superduty. He has a stock 2003 F350 crew cab short be and he needed some new tires pretty bad. I told him how much I loved mine and were I got them from and next thing I know he had ordered a set of 100% tread military take offs for $900 delivered. He also scored a awesome set of forged Centerlines off craigslist for $225. Everything I had read said they would fit with some trimming in the front so we set a date and got her done!

The factory wheels and worn out 32" tires


Fitting the fronts


Rubbing at the bumper



Pretty close at the back



After trimming the bumper and the back of the fender



The inner fender liner needed to be trimmed up and the main body seam had to be cut back flush with the bottom fender bolts. We then used a large zip tie to keep the fender liner pulled back in away from the tire at full lock


The bumper needed to be trimmed about 2" at the bottom edge



All done


The truck drives really well and he is super pumped with how it turned out. The amount of traction he has now is incredible. I also really like the look of the large tires no lift on trucks like this. They look so stout this way!

There is no rubbing at all. We tested it out on a 3' dirt hill flexing as far as the truck could and it was free and clear.

I like the results. I'm not at that point with my rig yet, but I'm leaning towards the "trim first, then lift as needed" method.
