6 inch with 37's here and it makes me want to jump off a bridge!!!!

Rides like crap and highway speeds are unbearable. Its going back to stock next week.

Might do a 2" level kit for the front from Icon, then go back with 35's...

On the 05 I believe yes. At least thats what Im shooting for when I get the big lift off.

35's on a level kit will work since there are no leaf springs for the tires to rub on

35s on a 2.5" leveling kit clears fine and it still rides great.
