3 or 4.5 inch lift with 35"?

Tryin to make my mind up about which lift to go with and I'm still not 100% sure about what backspacing to go with . . I'm going to run a 16 inch polished wheel . . . . .

I have a 03 6.0. 3 inch arched springs in the front with 4 inch blocks in the rear. I run 35 12.5 16.5 wheels with no problem.

Yeah and you even have to be careful which 17's you get. Some will fit some wont. Its due to the larger brakes on the 05+ trucks.

I think 35's with 18's are perfect. I only went to 20's cause I went up to 37's. Here is mine when it had 35's and 18's:
