You dont haveee to regear but its recommended. I like the look of stuffed tires so I would go with 35s personally. But 33s looks great too.

If your in the throw with parents on just getting a bodylift.. only get yourself 33's, as they probably would give you crap about having to regear.. and probably havign to fork up some bucks to have it doen right for you.. stick with a BL and 33's

I'd go with 33's but within a month of 33's you'll want 35's.

35's will NOT fit on a stock truck with only a body lift; well unless you want to cut the heck out of the fenders.

what did you have done to the rear? I would consider removing the front bumper to be the same as cutting, because if you didn't take it off you would have to cut it.

At that time of the pics, nothing was done to the rear. Stock K springs and stock blocks. Notice the truck is level(with maxxed out bars). Yes I had no valence, Yes I had no flares.

Still....your previous statement was incorrect. As I did it WITH NO CUTTING.

Cutting fenders does not equal removal of valence.....



I would not suggest 35's w/ just a bodylift if you plan on even somewhat off roading it. I was very comfortable driving it on the street, only rubbed at full left turn(to the lock). I was too afraid to wheel it.

i have torn both rear flares loose from the bed wheeling my truck with 33's and a body lift.

35's, no, if your gonna be a street queen then maybe, but you will be forced to stay on the streets.

Let's not talk about gearing and say we did. That's another thread.

This is about 33's/35's and BL... Lets keep it that way.

Well, I just got through doing a 4 inch SL with 33"s... i kinda wish I had 35"s now, although im more than happy with how the 33s look. if in doubt (and if you can afford it) go with the bigger tires!

33 with 4 inch lift:

Trevor....^^No offense, but that's to refresh you on what this thread is about.


Pablo: Stick to 33's, and you get to keep your 4.10's. If you do 35's, you need to set your truck up like i have mine in those pics(no flares, no valence, maxxed out bars). I have 4.10's and it's doing just fine. but i have a 5spd manual.

33 with 4 inch lift:

35's would be WAY too much tire for your truck. With 33's and 4" of lift you have just enough roo
m to flex. If you put 35's on with just the Superlift, the rear tire would tear apart the bed if you tried to do that.
