Yea.. The 35's do actually look small now but I don't want my poor hubs and steering rack to have to go through that much more torture haha

I actually think it looks perfect with 35's. Although who can pass up 37's? lol

you'd want to stay at 35's..unless you want to not be able to use the 4k in suspesion travel. you''l be perfect and probably not rub at all at full bump with that lift on. I had to remove quite a bit of innner fender to get mine to full bump with 35's.

I have it bumped and strapped at just 12" right now but I'll gain another 1- 1.5" when I get my hydro bumps

ohh and the axle is stock for now and will get 2.5'' spacers when my bedsides come in, will be trussed and plenty strong for what I do

Annnnnd I have polished KMC enduro's on the way too with a 5'' backspace to pull the wheels in another inch so I stop getting hassled by cops (3 times now)

only 3/4'' but im also driving around with no front bumper and a cracked windsheild, the truck already stands out more than a dodge viper so making it legal has become important

I can see the bumper for sure... around here I've never had a problem with my tires sticking out. Now that I say that I'm sure it'll happen though. lol

what you need is a set of deavers. But to retain the lift look you want and not the dropped rear of most desert trucks. Just dont do a flipped shackle, the springs have a larger arch and without a flipped shackle I would think it would keep you up around where you want to be and you can get rid of the nasty blocks!

Ahh I was reading that deavers added 2" of lift stock and 0" with a flipped shackle? Either way I'll get my ride height one way or another :p
