and the 'fun' begins lol but i would take it a notch more do a simple body lift or even better go with an aal in the rear with a spacer up front then go to the 35" tire, much more satisfying

oh spacer and spindle ahh i see lol. ya you should be able to clear the 35" on the front with that, and you will probably still be ok for clearance on the rear even without the aal it will even sit nicer in the fender for some trophy truck effect lol i believe the rear fender is around 35" at its widest so clearance should be good, but flex will be limited.

Lol ya I figured I would get that effect with those 33's....I mean there ko's so they sit a little smaller than 33's....so I think it'll look good imo....I posted a thread with the wheels and tires a day ago...if you wanna check them out right quick

its just the long wheelbase that bugs me about these trucks, you need a larger tire to make it look a little more full especially with the extended cabs. i imagine in a year after its all done you will notice the same as i have and wish you went a couple inches larger lol. i wouldnt buy those tires, hes not giving you any real deal there, and they look pootched in a few ways, the wheels are ok but im not much for simulated beads. i doubt those tires will balance very well

If you lift you will need longer shocks yes.

If you do the coil spacer in the front and the longer shackel in the back do you need longer shock absorbers?

Depends on how far you go. It is possible that you can max out your shocks. I would recommend new shocks.

Simple answer, no you don't. A couple inches won't bother much. Watch your truck droop next time its on a lift, you will see a good amount of travel on the shocks before you Gotta worry about it
