what axles did u use? I've got a Dana 60 front and a 14 bolt rear. I ask because I'm debating on tire size leaning towards 38-40 range. Worried about pumpkin clearance.

im just running half tons (gm 10 bolts out of a k5 blazer) and 33 14.00 inch tires. i contemplating running 1 tons when i built it but with those small of tires i figured they would be getting hung up all over the trails.

i would guess i have 9 inches of lift and the front tires might barely rub in extreme flex circumstances

yea I'm thinking I'll need to run 40s to clear. I'll probably end up cutting fenders as well

Default Will 15 in rims fit on gm 14 bolt rear drums?

Title says it all. Will 15" rims clear the rear drums on a gm14 bolt 1 ton rear axle?

Depends on the back spacing. You will need a lot of offset. If are you planning to run a 60 for a front axle that is going to limit you more than the rear will.

Edit I also merged your threads as well as moved it to the appropriate sub forum for you. Rather than starting a bunch of new threads regarding your build just post your questions in this one so that way people can know the history.

so those are 15x10 rims with 3.5 backspacing. they were close to the drum in the back but they fit without any rubbing. i eventually did a disc brake swap in the back

kinda hard to see but you can see the drums sticking out with the same rims in this picture taking by a potato
