8" and 35's

Does anyone have pics of a SD with an 8" lift and 35 inch tires or close? I have brand new 35s on now with a 4" lift. A buddy wants to trade lifts and I dont exactly have the cash to buy new wheels and tires at the moment. So Im wondering what it'll look like while Im in between ya know.

Input is also welcome lol

i personally wouldnt do it until you can get some new tires theres gonna be an awful lot of fender well space in there with 8 inches and 35's. if your tires are still that new the tire shop might give you a good deal on a trade in

youre right, The problem is I would want new wheels too and I dont have the cash lol. My bud would buy my wheels and tires for $1000, and then I'd be out about 2300 for the new set up I want. So 1300 in the hole. Im just not up for it right now The pics there of the 35s dont look as bad as I thought.

pull your truck on level ground, measure from the ground to the bottom of your frame, place a hi-lift jack on your rear bumper, put your buddies hi-lift on the front bumper, then jack the truck up til there's 4 more inches in height, then.................stand back and look at it. But I say put on the lift, bigger is better, worry about tires later, plus more fender room means you can jump higher, or stuff lil kids that peeese you off in there
