Tan One: 3" w/35" tires
White: 5" w/35" tires.
Both on 16x10 powder coated aluminum

Generally, 4" for 35's and 6" for 37's

I don't really have any preference in brands of lift, they all seem to ride the same to me in the front.

At least 6" is needed for 37s leme know if your interested in lifting your truck. I'm going down to a 4" and 35s. Pm me and we can work a price on my procomp 6.5" lift and 37s on 20s with only 5k miles.

You must not go offroad much? My wheels stick out about 3" past the fenders they are about 1/2" from hitting leafs and rub on the fender while turning and hitting a bump but not always.
