3 inch lift and 37s, what do ya think?

I was not happy how my truck looked with 35s and my small lift, so I got a great deal on some 37s and gave it a wirl, I had to space the bumper out a half inch and bend the plastic fenderliner a little with a heat gun but now im pretty happy, I dont think they look to crammed, but interested in your opinion, they barley rub on the leaf springs at a real full lock when turning slowly. Over all im happy and think the truck has proper wheel to lift proportion.

thanks much, I have to agree with not going back to 35s there is not a big difference in the tires, but with the legnth of this truck the 37s just seem to fit right to me, now my friend has the short bed with 35s and his looks perfect, I guess you just cant go wrong with big tires.

Looks good to me!
Looks like just about the perfect size tire for the height of the truck.

Thanks Much, I went with the tough country mini spring pack and drop down track bar bracket, was like $280 at topguncustomz.com I went with it cause I tried a single add a leaf and it did not lift the truck, I talked to the folks at Tough country and they advised it will actually lift my truck 3 to 3 1/2 inches and that is why the drop down bracket was necessary, Sure enough it lifted my truck about 3 1/2 inches in the front. Im very happy with it. Been on over a year and no sag due to all the layers.

Thanks That is the look I was going for, Dont hold me to this but i think the back spacing is 4.5 and the offset is -6 If you go to the pro comp website they only make two different 17 inch wheels in this style for our trucks one in 17x 8 inch and one in 17X9 I went with the 17x9 with the above spacing, I spent a lot of time on the phone with them and they told me to go with this size and they were right.
