    Default 5 or 6 inch lift

    i am torn between a 5 or 6 inch suspension lift for my truck. I want to run 33x12.5/18 wheels and tires. I know they have knuckle lifts and full drop lifts, but i dont want my tires sticking way out. Any one got a 5 or 6 inch lift kit pictures so i can get an idea of the hieght and look.

    Mine is a BDS 6.5" Suspension lift.

    If you're going to do the lift, you might aswell go with the 6 inch, so that you don't regret it. and wish you would have gone bigger. I have 33"x12.5R18 tires on my truck. They don't look out of place. I suggest the 6" lift.

    A 5 and 6 are the same. Mine is a bracket lift running stock wheels with 35's. I like the bracket cuz the tires are still tucked in
