Im all for big tire and little lift but I think 37s and a leveling kit looks dumb..IMO i LOVE a 4-4.5 inch with 35s..37s would look good too. You gotta atleast get like 4inch..it still might rub a tad. I dont have a 6.4, just sayin from what ive heard.

You can fit 37s with a 2.5 leveling kit and stock rims.

I recommend doing the 2.5" Icon leveling system if you want to run 37's.

i have an f350 and i have seen some trucks with small lift and big tires, i agree the 4 inch lift would look the best IMO!

So you are saying this looks "dumb" you better look at your own truck if you think so.
