    My truck has 6 and 3 and 35s and I think it looks sweet. 38s, here I come!

    I plan on removing the body lift when I buy new springs though, and going with more suspension to get the frame further from the ground.

    Man, and I thought 4+3 was a bit too tall on 38's!!! Climbing ledges at an angle is darn scary that high!

    Really? /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif Oh, thats right, you don't have to run fenders in Canada! LOL

    If I thought I could lower the body lift by 2", I would, but I'm still rubbing and I've cut off a lot.. even too much up front! The wife got a little upset when I said I might drop down to 37's and loose some body lift... She really likes driving it with the angry stance it has now.

    I'm commited to that lift and tire combo, so whatever else needs cutting will be cut and hacked. My front fenders are cut back to the firewall...so if it hits up front (doubtful with the rancho's) I'll have to move the axle forward and go crossover in the future.

    The rear is just a case of trim til it no longer hits...or add some longer bumpstops. The bumpstops might be a good plan because the tires already stuff really far into the wheel well.

    My wife won't drive my truck...she can't drive a standard./forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I run a 6+3 combo and the hill4wheeldrive extended shackles. 10 inches in the front and 9 in the rear. This is all on 35's. Doesn't look bad at all but I need some real meats /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
