Help me pick a lift

Im torn.....I dont know what to do with my truck. Help me out!

I am trying to decide between two different lift options.

1. Icon 2.5
If I go this route I am going to be running a 22x9.5 wheel and a 35 inch tire. My two choices for Tires are the Nitto Terra Grappler 325/50/22 or the Interco Trxus 35x12.5x22 MT. I have used the nitto before in this size and really liked the ride and the longevity but id really like something a little more aggressive.

2. Icon 4.5
If I go this route I will be going with the same 22x9.5 wheel and I will be using the Toyo 37x13.50x22. This is the tire that I really want and the look I really want.

I worry about the economy going way down with the bigger lift and bigger tires but it might be worth it for the look that im trying to achieve. If Toyo would just make a 35x12.5x22 it would be a no brainer and I would go with the 2.5 lift.

As you can see im pretty confused and have a tough choice to make. I know that either way the truck will look great, I just dont want to make a decision then decide later I want to go bigger or go smaller.

HELP!


Also, here are the measurments on the wheel im going to be using.

22x9.5
5.25bs
0mm Offset

I will be selling my factory 20s after I decide what I want to do.

The 4.5 on 37s is what i want most. I had a 8 Inch Rize with 2 Inch Coil spacers on 38s on my 06 Harley F350 and really liked the truck but it was a handful to drive and the mileage was terrible. Thats why im really trying to figure out what to do here. When fuel got really expensive last year I was spending $500 a week in diesel so I took off the lift, left the leveling spacers and just put the nitto 325/50/22 and the truck was much nicer to drive just didnt look so bad ***.

I would go with a 24 if the wheel I want was available in that size but unfortunatly its not. I love the big wheels. Here is my old truck on 24s.

I'd go with the combo that you want the most.
Otherwise, you'll probably be kicking yourself later for "settling" on a different combo.
