Ok..damnt! Well how cheap can i find one for? And are they too un-reliable ro even bother with? And a leveling kit isnt out of the question,what do you think about those? To tell you the truth i just wanna tuck 35's haha.

go buy some 35s and tuck em. leveling kit should get you there just fine.
I just bought a 4.5 inch ICON off here used for 1300, but not sure if im going to use it or not....Truck already has a leveling kit when i bought it. plenty of room to fit 35.s as long as you dont get crazy on your wheel width and offsets. If you dont know what those are........may want to reasearch everything a little longer so you know for sure what you are getting and be happy in the long run

For 35's and the fact the you are on a budget I would stick with something around 2.5" . You can get into the Pure Performance 2.5 Starter Kit with a a set of Bilstein 5100's for a little over a grand.

I wouldn't cheap out on a lift kit. You have a 2008 Crew Cab Long Bed truck. They are not hard to install yourself. In this world YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! I am sure you have heard that before. LOL

a 6.4 will tuck 35's fine without a lift or level. heck the stock tires are like 34's or so, so you should be fine with no kit!

Thanks alot guys! Think im gonna go with a good leveling kit for now then. After this job is over in late october im no doubt lifting this beast.
For 35's i was thinkin open country m/t. What do you guys think? And yes i do like a wider tire, i think after some trimming i should be able to run a wider offset. Thats how i did my f150.
