I have 35's and didn't want to go big. I'm sitting on a 4" lift making those 35's look right. Maybe it's me but I don't like the look of a truck with huge gaps in the wells. I know that once you go over 35's it gets pretty expensive! Good luck my friend

I do, I apologize as I haven't figured out how to reply with pics. If you click on my gallery they're in there.

I'd say looking at the front end of the truck is what yours would look like with 18's and 35" on a 4" lift. Hope that helps any

Good question brother, unfortunatley I don't know. The guy that did my lift is on Long Island, I see you're in CT. Here's the info, you should give him a call he's a great guy and will answer anything related. I didn't want to spend a fortune and basically left it up to him. I paid around $7100.00 but keep in mind I had to buy 6 tires, 4 rims as well. I believe the lift kit was around 2400.00 installed with upgraded stainless steel shocks including steering shock.

His info.. Richie (owner) R.M.S Offroad (631) 563-7411
