Awesome... sounds like you'll be doing some exploring like we do. 35's fit but watch the offset, I do not use a winch cause there is nothing to winch to with a 7000lb truck ... I jack-all with some other equipment to go with it, but will be getting a winch with a ground anchor and the winch will fit in the receivers front and back... plug n' play. We overland.. but not in the truck .. we still tent it. Have fun and enjoy the hunting season.
