Default 73-77 ford tire sizes

I'm finally starting the restore/restomod on my 77 ford f-250 crewcab 4x4 (highboy). It currently has a goofy 8 inch lift in it that I'll be pulling out. I'd like to swap stock springs back into it.

Without cutting the fenders, what size tire do you think I can run on the truck without a lift? I know I can run 35's, but has anyone gone bigger? I'd really like to run 37's, and I'm wondering if I will have to lift it for those.

I ran 36s on a highboy but anything more than that you are going to be pushing it.

They would probably fit but I would opt for at least a 2" if not a 4" lift to allow for a little susp travel.

Thats probably where I will go with the project. I have aquired a set of stock springs, so I'll probably put them in and see where it sits and take it from there.
