Arrow Lift help?

I am going to lift my truck for look purposes only, No off-roading for this truck. I want enough to clear 37's. How much lift? 4" or 6"?

I want to black out the truck, I want to get some 20" KMC black RockStars with 37-14-20 Nitto Mud Grapplers.


Picture it in your head......

What do you think it will look like?

My buddy has an OBS with 6 inch lift and 37's on 22's and it looks great it's not to high and does not rub.

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

6" for sure for 37's...

While you're at it you may want to swap in a solid axle in the front - help out with the wear on the tires LOL
