I would do 35s with the stockers..not a big fan of the pretty boy trucks with huge wheels.

Would a leveling kit and and 20s/35s fit your budget? You aren't going to see much height difference if at all with a 3" lift over a 2.5" leveling kit. Ride quality might change a bit with the lift, but the look will be almost identical.

EDIT: What size leveling kit are you thinking? I ran a 1.5" kit up front and stock blocks out back with the 20s/33s combo, and it looked great IMO. Heres a pic. Different wheels, and 305/55r20 Terra Grapplers. I liked that setup a lot.

I would def. go with a 2.5" leveling kit. I think I might be able to sqeeze some 35's into the budget if I went that route but for some reason I like the look of 20's in 33's instead of 35's. I think I'm leaning towards the 20's and 33/35's and a leveling kit but I'm still not 100% sure yet. Now I'm just trying to figure out if those are the wheels I want. Seems like everyone has XD this or that so I'm going for a little different look.

I think either way, you've got the right idea and it will look good. I know what you mean about the 20/33 combo. The tire to wheel ratio just looks good. I just don't think you will be completely happy if you don't go ahead with 35s, and if you get 35s, you will wish you had the 20s. Like I said though, however you end up doing it, it will look good no doubt!
