Niitos

I am looking to put some 35 trails 12.5-18 in rims on a 2000 7.3. Do I need a leveling kit or lift or would that fit stock?

Sorry new driver trying to figure it out on my own

They won't fit stock. You'll need at least a leveling kit. I had a leveling kit and my 35x12.50's rubbed at full lock

If I had it to do all over again, I'd go with a 4" lift

Not sure on brand, but personally, I'd use a shackle/hanger kit of some kind to retain the ride.
