    ever look at TCs web site? they list everything by part number...

    http://www.tuffcountry.com/suspension_gm_6987.html

    AFA 36s or 37s... I have 5" of lift and fit 39.5s with no problems. 42s will fit with a little more work to the body. All depends on how squeemish you are about sheetmetal I guess.

    IMHO, I think 6" lifts look better with only 35" tires. An 8" lift would look good with 37" tires, but when it comes to functionality, who cares about appearance. As the general rule goes: The lower the lift, and the taller the tire...the better off road performance you will get.

    yeppers.. the lone exception being deep azz mud bogs... gotta have lots of lift with them. For any other terrian, lower the COG as much as possible.
