Going up a couple inches

Ok so my 02 has a 3.5" Fabtech hanger kit on it that can only run 33" tires. What would be the easiest/cheapest/best way to get enough clearance to run 35"s??

I have a Skyjacker lift on my truck and clear 35's with no problems at all. Heck I could put on 37s and fit easy, but might scunch the fender in a turn if I bottom out off roading! Search the web, and there are some great deals on lifting our trucks easy! Most budget kits come with new front springs, rear springs/blocks hardware and shocks. A good 4 inch kit and you can clear 35's with no problem.

If you get the right tire you can run 35's. You might have to cut the fender lining but 35's should fit.

I have 35s on mine with the same lift. I had to use the superlift bumper spacer to get it to work.

Put the 35's on and drive it. If anything hit take a sawzall and grinder to it. That is the easiest/cheapest/best way and if you are careful with the sawzall and grinder you can make it look good. I had another early 99 that I switched between 35x15.50x16.5's and 37x12.50's and had no lift on it what-so-ever. It did have x-code springs which should equal the lift you have.
