Cheapest way to get 35's to fit?

Just bought 4 wheels and tires 35/12.5r18. I have a 2002 Excursion and was wondering what the cheapest lift to get them to fit would be.

Pretty sure you can get them to fit with just a level kit but not 100%

let me just say you get what you pay for. If you go cheap you WILL hate it, it will ride like crap and you will spend more money to fix all the problems you created by being cheap then you would have spent by doing it right the first time...

I'd like to find this out too. I want to get 35's if they'll fit with just a leveling kit.

From what ive seen some guys make the 3.5inch lift work but its more for the 33's. you may have to go to the 5.5 to get good enough clearence.We sell the fabtechs for around $1700. My 02 f250 had to see a 6inch to get enough clearance for 35's.
I have the 8inch now and the 37s still rub the leaf springs and almost touch the rear of the front fender well.

I was looking at the rough country 5 inch lift. It's only about $800. Does anyone have experience with the rough country lifts? And some guys fit 35s with a 4 inch correct?

rough country is bottom of the line lift kit, you get what you pay for which usually equates to a sacrificed ride,

I had a rough country lift on my jeep, I know it's no ex, but it sucked. Shocks were crap, they had horrible dampening. The spring rates were way off to. So the combined bad shocks and bad springs made it a very bouncy ride.
