    Well I can't be of much help with out more information. I checked your profile and it is not filled out. Anyhow what type of wheeling do you plan to do? What axles are in it? Are you planning a gear swap? What trans does it have? Answers to questions like that will be a big help.

    Welcome to CK5! /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif


    It would help us a bunch if you would give us some details about the truck (year, model, engine, axle ratio's, etc.) and what you plan on doing with it. Do you drive it everyday? Do you plan on going wheeling every weekend or only once or twice a year? Do you want great off-road performance or do you just want to look cool at the stoplight?

    Every truck is different so what works for someone else might not work for you.

    One thing to keep in mind is that a 6" lift may require more parts to be replaced then a 4" lift. It's almost the same amount of work but it can be a little more expensive. Some of the parts you may need to replace are: drag link, steering arm, driveshafts, etc.


    In most cases a 4" lift can be easily installed without any MAJOR modifications. I've seen 35" tires fit nicely under 4" lift and I've also seen some rub. Worst case would mean you cut a little fender, no big deal. Steve has a great write-up on Fender Trimming in the technical section of this site.


    Take some time to search through some of the other forums and you'll be surprised at how much good info you can find.
