Any Pics of '05 Extended Cab w/Short box on 4"lift?

I know we see an occasional request like this but since I haven't seen any fitting the description of my truck, I thought I'd ask. I have a 4" Skyjacker kit that I will be putting on that I got off bondsman when the weather gets a little better...but I'm not sure whether 33's or 35's. Thanks.

I guess I should have clarified a little...I know that 35's will work, hell 37's will work....but I wanted to see what 33's and 35's looked like. I'd rather stay as low as possible...less wear and tear and will tow easier. Just want to see how they look to compare. Thanks.

33" tires are too small for a 4" lift. I've got 33's on my truck with stock suspension and i think they look too small. You need to go with 35's.

Here is mine, 4" lift with 35x12.50/18 tires. I could fit 37s because of my bumper, but for stock bumper I wouldn't recommend larger than 35s, 33s would be too small. Also, wheel offset and tire width affects this a lot. My wheels are -12 offset and 10" wide, 5" backspace.



Here is with my old 315/75/16 on 16x8 with 4" backspace:

Finally, some pics!! Thanks Cartmanea...I've always liked your truck from your sig, just didn't know it was a 4" lift. Also thanks for the advise on backspacing.

Oops, the backspacing I listed is for '04 and earlier, for your '05 you would want more backspace and positive offset. For a 10" wide wheel I think you want 5.5-5.75" backspace which is around +18 offset.
