I want to go with a 6 inch lift and still beable to tow a bassboat and a car trailer. If you got any pictures matching this on 35s or 37s post them up for me. Also what kind of decrease in mileage have you seen after your lift.

Hkxyz- sweet looking truck bro!

powerstroke07- Have you considered a 4.5" lift? ...for towing reasons?

Getting a smaller lift can be better sometimes,..no brake line issues, no pitman arm issues, not as much drive-line issues, etc etc etc

Actually...I sit a little higher than a 6" lift,..but that is because of the tires.


DR/Icon 4.5" lift...on 41's...and some "slight" trimming....lololol

Great thread. Been trying to decide between keeping my 18" wheels and getting 35"s or 37"s..also wanting to upgrade to 20" wheels(my 18's have the chrome starting to peel) and get either 35" or 37".

I know the Canadian prices are a bit out of wack compared to the US, but does $3800 for 20" Black rockstars and 37" Nitto Mud Grapplers sound right? Roughly $3500 with 35". Though I could get a set of 37x12.5x18 BFG All Terrain for $1300. Too many decisions!

3800 is not that bad of a price , why nitto's ? They make alot of road noise , i like the toyo m/ts way better and they wear real good . Whered you price them at?

I only recommend TOYO'S for people that like a VERY good tire wear, minimal off-roading, and looks.

They are very pricey, and their off-roading abilities,...ummm well....buy ProComp's.....lol

But if your not going off-road, they are a GREAT tire, and they take forever to wear out.
