    Anyone run a 4 inch and '33s or a 6 inch and '35s have pictures?

    I have a Dana 44 and a 14 ff sitting behind my shop with 4.10s in them and I'm trying to decide what to do. The thing is going to be mostly a daily driver, I want it to ride smooth but I would still like to be able to tow a small trailer with dirt bikes or snowmobiles ya know?

    The motor is stock for now. It's an '84 Silverado 350 4bbl.

    I have looked, it seems nobody posts there lift or what the actual tire size is...

    I guess this is more then just a pic request, but what are the preferences as far as lift size for a 35 inch tire...

    I think most guys run 4 inch lifts, but I think I like the look of the 6 inch better. Will it ride as smooth?

    Well I have towed with my K5 lifted , and I drive it to work everyday , and I wheel it to boot .

    4 inch Pro Comp fronts , bought because of package deal with everything else I needed . Rear shackle flip with stock 52's .

    Ride is nice and controlled on pavement . Predictable , smooth , I like it .

    Ride is awesome towing a few thousand pounds of k5 tub on a rented trailer .

    Marv hates the ride in dirt , but he's older than me :wink1:

    Here is mine with a six inch BDS lift and 35's. Haven't really had it out on the road to see how it rides or wheeled it yet. I have a 14 bolt and Dana 44 as well.
