Good pics on 4inch lift and 31s vs 33s

I'm trying to decide what to do 4inch superlift with 31s duratracs will that look bad ?? Or 33s and buy new if anyone has some good pics that would be great and mileage with 410, 4.0 is there much difference between 31 and 33

Deffientley 33's.. 31s you can fit stock, so it just doesnt look that good with the lift.. too much wheel gap. I didnt notice much difference in mpgs when i switched to 33's

I run 33's with 4.10's... Mpgs isn't that much difference... Maybe a little less. If you lift 4 inches, definitely go with 33's, 32x11.5's would be the smallest I would go.

31s are too small for a Superlift in my opinion... I had them on for one day until I picked up my 33's. I don't really have two pictures at the same angle but these are at least both from a front corner.

I personally think the 10.5's are a little too narrow.. MPG isn't terrible I get about 130 miles to a half a tank. All in all its your truck so do what you want to do. If mileage is a big factor you could always body lift it and buy 32x11.5's

Didn't really pay attention before hand lol still a little over 200miles per tank, same as stock on 31's. Gas prices are outrageous so I stopped paying attention and just fill up, less stressful.

Get 33's. With my 4.10's and a 4.0L my mileage tanked. I used to get 19-21. Now it's like 14-16.

Tuner is coming though

If you can get it cheap enough it'll stand up better to replace it instead of painting.

Ya thats what i was thinking people make the fusion plastic paint sound so good on here.. but i still wonder if its really that good. I would like all black like the fx4 interior but grey would be fine anything but the tan it looks like it was supposed to be white and someone just smoked in it haha

The Krylon Fusion is good stuff, I've never used it on something that is constantly touched though.

If you're going to paint the dash and everything, use SEM Landau Black. Prep it well and it will look awesome.

not my car but the entire dash used to be the color of the steering wheel.


here is something i used SEM on. Tan explorer console to black. it looks factory, i'm holding an OEM FX4 console piece in my hand in front of the SEM painted explorer console.




I did my seats with a different SEM product. they were tan and are now black.

I used Landau Black and Matte clear coat under the "Color Coat" product line for the console

for the seats, i used Classic Coat GMC Black

Prep, i just washed it with regular soap and water (don't need the SEM soap), sanded, washed again, let dry, adhesion promoter, and sprayed.

You can order the Landau black at advance auto parts if you wanted to. some stores actually have it on the shelf. I haven't painted any cloth stuff with either paint so idk how it would look. my seats are leather.

krylon usually comes out too glossy even if you use satin black which is why i did some research on SEM to make my console look factory. I'd pull those pieces off of the door panels and wrap them in black pleather/vinyl. Its easy to do
