IMHO 6" is for 37's or 38's...

4" and 35's or 37's...

2.5" to 3" for 33's to 35's.

I have 35's on my truck with a 6 inch lift. It doesn't look to bad at all but personally, I'd like to change the lift and when I do I'm gonna go with a 4 inch. It had the lift on the truck when I bought it and 37's, it looked better that way but when I had to buy tires I wasn't about to pay the huge difference between 35's and 37's so I went with 35's.

I did a 4.5" lift on my 01 F-350 CCLB two weeks ago with 325/65/18s. It looks great. I wouldn't want it any taller for my tastes. I agree with the above guys that 6" looks best with 37"+ tires. Good luck to you.

ps- 4" is cheaper too

All that's needed for most 35" if your front springs are v codes is a 3" hanger kit, so that or a 4.5" hanger kit will get the best ride quality.

PM me if I can help.

thanks guys... i was leaning towards the 4" myself. now im stuck between which lift to buy. procomp, zone, superlift or rough country. i dont drive the truck much. i dont mind a firm ride...nothing harsh. i dont really wanna pay over 1100 for the lift either. so icon is out of the question. i wasnt a complete lift with shocks and whatnot. i dont want to be piecing a lift together. i like the zone kit. any recommendations.

I'm in the same boat you are. I have 35's and the scrub when turning hard or turning into a steep driveway. Looking to do a lift....lots of other things sucking cash right now though.

I got a quote today from my local offroad shop. " 4" BDS spring lift. That runs $1215 w/ 5500 series shocks. Id highly recommend doing the Fox Shock upgrade which runs an additional $265 for all (4)."

im thinking 315/75r16 nitto mud grapplers on stock lariat wheels or 35x12.50r17 mud grapplers on 17x9 wheels. if I do 315s I wouldn't have to buy new wheels right away
