LIFT KIT HELP

Ok, so I plan on lifting my truck here in the next month or two. I am not sure exactly how drastic I should go. I want to put some big old 35's and some hot wheelson, but I am not sure what size lift I need to go with. I was thinking about a four or five, but should I just go all out and get a six? I am thinking about just going all out because I want to sticker my back window to say, "Jack-em up fat guys can't climb" so I need to make sure it is up there. I also am taking suggestions on what kit to go with. I have decided it is time to start dumping some money in the old truck.

You can clear 35s with 4" if the whells arent to wide they wont rub However I think 6" with 35s looks better and no chance of rubbingI fyou like it high why not 6" with 37or38s???

Hey thanks guys,

I like the sounds of going with the 6" lift and 37's. I am gonna start shopping around.

Just remember 37" tires will make for very steep gearing if you have 3.73 gears now. Pulling a trailer you are going to notice a huge difference in power and fuel economy.

I say to hell with it and go for broke. 6" w/37s!
