Thinking of 4" lift and 35's -

Ok, anyone have some good pics of a CCLB with 4" on 35's? Let's see em!

I have 3:73 gears too - so that plays into it.

Anyone out there lift their truck and regret it?

I am about to buy new tires pretty soon so that's why I'm thinking about it now. I don't really go rock crawling but I also still want to drive where I want to with my truck, so there is no way I could have just a 2 1/2 inch leveling kit and still 'use' the truck with 35's on it?? If I could, I'd almost rather do this. It's cheaper, that's for sure!

I also don't know the width of the rims I have, or the backspacing of them. I guess I could measure them or what??

Thanks -
Scott

a 4 inch lift would give you more clearance but theres a few guys running 35's with a leveling kit.
i have 33's and i have tons of room with a 2.5 inch leveling kit.
it also depends on what style leveling kit you go with.

p.s. how does your truck shift with your transgo shift kit and php chip?
thanks

I already have an add a leaf, and it lifted me 1.5 inches. I know that a regular leveling kit would add at least an inch to what I have now. I have a lot of room with my 33's now.

I can give you a pic of mine. It's on 35" and 4" of lift, but I also have a 4" block in the rear. So it's 4" and then 8".

Oh and as for the transgo + php, it shifts well in race and DD, tow feels strange to me but I have not used it towing yet but it felt odd with just a lot of weight in the bed on that setting. I let them know about the kit and it was tuned for that supposedly.

4" lift kit with 35" tires is definetly the way to go. I can still drive into any parkiing structure that clears 7'0". Theres plenty of ground clearance to go off roading and the ride is still comfortable for a daily driver.

make sure you get wheels with the proper backspacing and width and you should be golden.
ya mine shifts ok in tow, lots of flare in DD, but race and xtreme shift nicely lol

Does anyone have an example of a proper width and backspacing that does not rub or cause problem with a leveling kit? 4 inch lift would be great but I just know that that is very expensive, and could be more than I need from what I keep reading. I will also need some factory fender flares so the cops around here won't mess with me because the tires will extend outside the stock fenders, no matter what lift I go with.

I have a leveling kit on my red truck, and 35's, on aftermarket rims of unknown backspacing (16.5x10") that rub a little bit on the back of the fender liner... I also had to trim the edge of the front bumper.
