    Not to highjack or anything but how bout some pics of 6" and 35s/36s /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif If a 36" TSL Radial is decent enough for daily driving then I might consider them...there so expensive /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif. If its not good enough then Ill prob stick with what I know works....a 35 BFG Mud. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] Your truck is freakin' tall for only 7" and 8"(lots of fenderwell space). I have 10" in the back and 9" in the front but sits level on even ground ( uneven ground in pic)and it looks bigger than mine. [​IMG]

    Trimmed front and bobbed rear make it look lots higher, my 4" looks way high with the trimming, lots of wheel well space just from the minor trimming

    So I guess I am to assume /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif that if I put a 4" lift then I should be able to fit 38" tires because I have a 3" body lift on the truck. If so, then I will save a bunch of money on a lift and that would be great /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif.

    Is my thinking correct?

    Sorry If I hyjacked. But I think my question will also help some other people besides me(and newbies).

    Later,
    Don

    Id take the body lift off. But thats me. I dont like them 2" is the most I would consider putting on my truck. Ive heard to many bad things about them if you have 2 much. Its not gonna hurt anything to leave the body lift on but Im kindof scared of them.

    I ran 38.5's on my 4" suspension before I added the 2" body. It worked, didn't wheel it extremly hard, but it worked.

    No matter what you'll always want bigger. I am really trying to resist that urge. I've grown too big as it is.
