Honestly go with an 8 inch lift... right now I am siting on a 6 with 37's and I think an 8" would fit the combo perfect with no chance of tire rub if you go play in the dirt.

I've got the 7'' from PMF, and I have no rubbing issues what so ever. Nothing's ever come close and I really doubt that it will. It seems to me that I'd have to get 38s or something to make it come close to rubbing.

That being said, you know my vote would be the 7'', or I woulda got the 4.5.... BUT the guy on here that just put the level kit/37s and 18s looks pretty good to me too.

It's been my experience that when you have 2 heights to choose from if you choose the smaller sooner or later you'll end up getting the bigger. It also seems that a lot of the guys with over 6'' lifts end up lowering their trucks back to stock so it's kinda a catch 22 there....

I'm the same situation. It wnt be till the summer or maybe a little after, but I'm stuck between the ICON 4.5 and 7. I want to run 22's, but can't fit 37's on a 4.5" lift unless it's a high offset that has the wheels tucked. I like a wide stance.

What about if you did the 4.5 with the 1'' TEI spacer and taller block setup in the rear? Sak from truck toyz did it on 37s with the 20x10 BMFs which are probably about the offset if not less than what you'd get with a 22...

Tried to find the pics on their site but can't... I'm sure one of the truck toyz guys will see this and chime in....

I want the 22x11 Fuels. That extra inch will rub. O spoke to SAK about his set up. I'll need a 10" wheel.
