Any picks of 8" - 9" lifts w/ 35's

Anyone have pics of this combo? 99-04 would be preferable, but any are welcomed. Thanks.

8-9 inches on lift would be a bit much for 35" tires i think....I have 35's on mine now and only a 4" inch lift. My old truck had 10" lift and 40's under it...id think 37's would probably look better.

Yeah, about the max you would want to go with 35's is 6in, past that they will start to look to small.

I agree. 35s are way to small for that. Unless you are going for that look? It seems now alot of people are running huge lifts with tiny tires stretched on wheels that are way to wide.

Well I know I am going to get flack, but yes I am wanting to go for that suedo look. Figured it would come up.

Yes I know 35's will fit w/ the 6 inch. I have a 2004 F250 with 6 inch Donahue/icon lift on 35 toyo's on 18x10's. Love it. Now however, I want to do something different. I do appreciate as they say the "cen cal" look but not all aspects with really stretched tires and enormous lifts. I want something in between what really fits with lift height and the "cen cal"

I am looking at doing 8 inches of lift with 35 mud grapplers (which are larger than most 35's) on some 20x12 rims. Not to over the top but something a little different.

I understand the look is not for everyone and I can appreciate all types of styles. Just the way I want to go.

Thanks though for the info.

I run 9.5" on 37s and most people say they look small. However when we get rowdy and take her through the whoops in the dunes hard, i have hit and bent the rear part of the fender well at the front fender and the rear bed..... though my suspension is pretty soft and can travel more then most. i would say 9" on 35s would look small, unless you ran really wide tires like 35x14s or 35x15s, like SSRs, and that looks pretty good. That is the big thing in SoCal right now. 10-12" lift on 35x15.5x22 SSRs on 22x14 rims. Looks great in my opinion, the width makes up it. just running 35x12.5s on stock or 10" wide wheels is going to look very disproportionate.

Cool good to see I'm not the only one going to be running this style.

Jetjock - always liked your trucks. I was back on "Ford truck world" years ago and you were there when you had your silver truck. Feels like ages, got off 5 years ago or so due to a virus from the web site getting my computer. Quick question for you. I do think the 05+ trucks sit 1-2 inches higher stock than the 99-04's. Does that mean that since you have 9.5 inches of lift is that more like 10.5 to 11 on a 99-04? Figure since you had both styles you would know how the lift relates. Wondering then if a 8-9 inch on a 99-04 would be more like 7 to 8 on a 05+.

But yes agree with stock or 10 inch rims would look goofy. Want to run 20x12's and a wide 35. Who knows maybe when it comes time for tires I may do the 22x14's w/ iroks. The wide tires and wide rims do look pretty sweet.
