ok. so i need new tires pronto. But here is my catch: Im not made of money, my 97 350 is sitting on a stock suspension, so i need to buy some sort of lift kit in order to buy bigger tires. BUT i cant afford any sick *** suspension mods because i am buying tires AND wheels all at the same time. SO, my question is, WHAT IS THE BEST/CHEAPEST WAY TO TEMPORARILY LIFT MY TRUCK TO CLEAR (AT LEAST) 35" TIRES?

Simple leveling kit will clear them, may have to shim bumper just a bit

I had 35's on my truck before I did the RSK, and all I had to do was shim the bumper.

Before the RSK, I had a 2.5" shim in there. Now that I have the
RSK, it's only 1".
I could also just trim the lower edge on the end of the bumper and do without the shim altogether, but I'm used to how it looks.

Throw you a add-a-leaf on there and you will be fine
