    Are you asking if 35"s will fit with only a 3" bodylift?
    Yes
    I would highly disagree with doing a 3" BL and a 6" suspension lift on the same truck.

    Personally I stay away from any and all body lifts. Seen enough bad things happen to try. I know many people run 'em with no probs, but I never will. I have run 35's with 4" lifts on 3 different rigs. With just a 3" body lift you probly will still get some rubbing when out wheeling. People here are running 40"+ with 8" of lift and no body lifts. Some run 40's with 6" and a zero-rate.

    i agree, i dont like body lifts. i guess they work fine, but the idea of all that space between the body and the frame, i just dont like it. at most, i would consider a 1" from ORD, but thats it.

    i had 35's on 15x10 rims with 2" lift before, only rubbed on sharp turns

    I'm gonna do the 1" ORD on mine, mainly because I gotta replace all that stuff anyways. An extra inch never hurts with 4" suspension and 36's.
