Best tire/wheel lift options w/ pics?

I am sure this has been beat to death, but I am new to the powerstroke world. I would love to see (or links to the pic) of 2001 f-350 CCLBs with lifts and 35s. Mine is totally stock and would like to change that. Thanks.

Best height?
Brand of kit?
Wheel size with offset?
Trim fenders?

I like this type of look

Any more ideas guys? I am leaning toward 35s and 6" lift, but am not sure which lift to go with.

My truck has a 6" lift and 35s but they are 13.5" wide. I think with a 6" you need a little wider tire. Personally I think 35X12.5 look perfect on a 2.5" lift and 37X13.5 should go on a 6" but thats just me.

Thanks Mike. Nice truck. I think you are right about 37s on the 6". I am going for 35s or even 295/70/18s in the nitto, so 6" would be way to big.

Sorry I'm all over the place guys.

Im running a 6" with 35s. In my opinion, they're too small and will go larger next time.

This is my friends 2000 truck with a 4.5" lift and 35's with 20's. It is a great stance if you plan on towing a lot. If you like bigger lifts than go with the 6", or whatever you want to go with. It is cheaper to just go to that than to change it out down the road...LOL
