    15w40. There is a ton of good info about this in the tech talk area. Search for oil and BinderBookie. You'll find some really cool info about oil.

    Have you had a chance to drive it to see how it does? What is the product you are using on the axle and frame and how are you applying it? Looks great.

    Thanks, S.H.A.F.T.

    I think it'll look just fine. I mean youre talking a half inch really. 35 12.5s technically only measure 34.5"

    Ueah, I agree. In fact you could even go 33s. It looks like those 35s are going to eat some sheetmetal If you get crossed up too much.

    33"s if you want to wheel it and not rub like crazy all over...... Been there done that still will need to trim a little with 33"s for wheeling on the fender lips...... Used to use por-15 not a fan big disappointment rust keeps growing underneath it. If you have time search my username on here and check out my past experiences with it, many others feel the same way, if your are just wire brushing and painting over rusty frame try Rustoleum primer for (rusty metal) it is better overall in my opinion you can buy it in a can to brush or spray on and then topcoat with flat black rustoleum or color of choice. If you want a better chip resistant paint I am currenlty using Rust bullet as a primer then topcoating. Just trying to help you I've done many a scout frame over the years..... Experiment give it a try if you like por-15 it's just too expensive and almost always fails in a year or two......
    Good luck

    i wasnt painting over much rust, just wire brushing all the dirt off and brushing it on, i like por 15 cause of how thick it is, as far as the tires go i do have a 3" body lift and lift springs too, not planning on a ton of wheeling either, may go 33 may go 34, i like the look with the 35s though

    its not that bad actually .... I have some trimming I want to do to the rear wheel well area .... Patrick Morris has a good writeup on the trimming he did ... I think my trimming will be very close to what he did ... mine is a camping rig and while it gets crossed up on occasion for the most part it is seldom that I get rubbing as it sits .... but the vast number of trails near me and as I gain more experience some trimming is definitely needed ... few hours with a grinder and a hammer is better than that sound of rubber getting chewed up any day ...
