    Good looking truck you got there. If your not afraid to cut some fenders, then you can fit the 38's with just a 4 inch suspension lift. I strongly advise against body lifts that are over 1" tall. They do nothing for you except lift your center of gravity, which is never a good thing. Granted, a suspension lift heightens your center of gravity too, but you gain flex which helps in tipsy situations more often than not. Im running 37's on about a 4 inch lift, and had to cut some off my fenders. They do fit though. One guy on here was running 42's on a 2" lift. I guess it just depends on if you want to cut any or not. If not, I would suggest a 6" suspension lift and maybe a 1" body but only if you have to.

    4in suisp and 3in body you will be able to fit 38s with some minor trimming. dont expect to wheel tho unless you go all out on your trimming

    Looks sweet man, not a big fan of the euro tail lights though. Would look better if you brought the rear bumper up to the body also IMHO.
    Flames are sweet, and were did you get the clear front blinkers/reflectors?..those are killer!
    Why 20's? I think it looks sweet with what you got on there now!

    i got the lights from a company called ''turned by matrix'' and they where hard to get and costly...i got the rear lights to go along with the front...i am also upgrading my tires and wheels because i bought the bead locks from a guy that rock crawls and it was a last resort at 200 bucks because of the axle swap from 6 to 8 lug...and i found out why the price was cheap when i got the truck out on the highway at 65mph

    Looks pretty sweet!

    you might want to do a shackle flip in the rear to eliminate your ass sagging low and maybe a bumper kit to raise the RR to fill the body lift gap.

    All in all you did a great job....givin' me some ideas for my build up. :bow:

    the truck sits even i think it is just the pictures....i was thinking about either putting the 2500 bucks i was going to spend on tires and wheels and get raid of the 4 ich lifted and get a 8to 12inch lift and some 42s and keep my wheels....that will just about break even....tell me what you think about that???
