Well today I ordered new tires. I got the bfgoodrich KM2's size 35 x 12.5 R18. My question is will I have to trim any right now with just a 3inch body lift?

Besides the BL thats all I have lift wise to clear these tires. There going on the stock NNBS 18in wheels.

You may have to trim your valance. I have a 2" Body Lift and leveling kit with 33x13x18 on the NNBS rims and have plenty of room. I want to go 35's next after I regear.

35's are way to big for just a 3" bodylift

Not when the 35's are on stock rims. There are too many people that have done it successfully on here with no problems.

yeah I know I can fit them with just 3BL and plus bfg's run small. I just don't want to have to trim metal if I can avoid it.

35's look pretty stuffed on 6" lifts let alone a bl.

when you worry about cutting up your truck to fit the tires there too big.

i run a 33 on a stock rim. i could fit 35's no problem. but i'm an OBS. i think you might have to do a bit of trimming but nothing extreme. i might have been wrong before though.

This is just gonna be temporary because I have to have tires now because mine are bald as hell. A 6in suspension lift will come within the next month or two for sure.

I run 35x12.50-18x9 wheel on my Z71 with a 6 inch lift and I rub a little when I turn, the back of the fender. I trimmed the Air dam and it comes close to it but no rub. I think it will be very close on yours with just a 3" body lift. No room to flex anything.
