    Welcome too the best site on the net. Let's talk about what you want too do with your truck. Do you want too rock crawl, mud, trails, ...ect. ??? Anyways, for a 4" lift, I really like Tuff Country and BDS springs up front. I detest blocks !!!!!! I'm a fan of the ORD Shackle Flip. If your stock rear springs are in good shape, I highly recomend doing a shackle flip instead of lift blocks. With 35's or 36's, you may need too trim your fenders. No biggie, looks pretty damn good in my honest opinion anyways. Chances are that the gears in your stock 1/2 ton axles are too high for the larger tires you want (High gears + large tires = burnt out auto transmission.) but there are ways too deal with this issue. You can regear your axles, but I prefer to swap out the 1/2 axles for the stronger 3/4 ton axles with the lower gears already in them. 1 ton axles are stronger yet, but then you're talking big bucks. For 35's, 3/4 ton axles should work well. Just ask alot of questions, and I'm sure most people here will be happy too help you plan this out the right way.
