I dont know if you can fit a 35 or not but by the looks of your truck it looks like your truck would look alot better with a leveling kit. Mine is in desperate need of one and I have one on the way. I bought mine from ebay.

What color is that? Dark ford blue? Does it look like mine? I'm asking because I need to repaint mine.

Thanks,
Luke

im not sure on the color you could go to your local parts store that sells paint and they could probably look it up for ya there so they could match the paint i know my local parts store here could do it but it might be the dark ford blue because i got my trans am painted a dark blue metallic and its almost identical to my truck

Okay I talked to my girlfriends father in law...he has a crew cab 350 longbed with 2.5 inch leveling shackles he said the tires he has on now are 35x12.5 pro comps....i can speak from experience that it looks badass, it makes the truck look like a tank going down the road....it almost looks like he has a 3 or 4 inch lift. He said his bumper was shimmed because he would rather do that than trim it a little.

I have the fabtech leveling kit and add a leaf in the rear with 35x12.5x16.5 bfg. No rubbing. Depends on the wheel you get. Get aftermarket wheels and you shouldnt have a problem.

Sticking to a 12.5" wide tire will clear better than the 13.5"..with a 2.5" kit..every bit helps. Watch the wheel offset.
