I would say no more then 4 inches is needed. I am surprized you have 33's on a stock hieght OBS truck with out rubbing.

I have a 2.5" lift on my 95 and I had to trim the bumper a little but otherwise I fit 35s on it with no problem, I would say go for it you have a 350 so you sit a little higher than mine does stock anyways, I think the 35s with this lift look really good.

I have 33's as well on mine (it is stock height as well) and it looks like i have plenty of room for 35's without a lift but looks can be deceiving.

I think that 35s on stock height can be done on a 350 since they sit higher stock but it might be better to go with the 2.5 lift becuaes its a pretty cheap lift and looks really good too

Yea im just cheap and dont want to put money in the looks of my truck, i need it for performance. once ive done every thing i want performance wise i will do things like that. i was going to get 35" tires next time i get tires ( which is real soon ) so if your in no hurry i can tell you if 35" fit on the stock height with no rubbing.

since you got the exhaust, do you have an intake as well and gauges, if you do then I would suggest going with the TW chip. I have the TS 140 horse chip on mine that REALLY woke the truck up, it will chirp the tires just from flooring it from a stop. The one problem is that the generic tunes on the TS chip dont shift as well which is why I am going to get it reburned with TW tunes because Ive heard the power is better too. So as long as you have an intake and gauges I would highly reccomend a TW chip or even the TS chip it is awesome if you want that umph without having to mess with upgrading the trans.

So if i get an intake and gauges it will be like yours then?? and could you send me the link to the chip you have and the chip you are going to get?? I emailed Tony Wildman a long time ago like 4months ago and he said i could only get 70hp out of the stock injectors is that true?? Oh and i want to be able to tow and not slip the tranny
