Skyjacker makes a 3 inch lift for your truck. Its easy to install because you dont have to drop the front diff. to install. I saw your post about f-150s with 37s. We did have customers with f-150s and 37s. They also didnt like 37s. Since you have a 3 inch kit if you use the Skyjacker 3inch kit you can then run 35s. But you still may have to regear, depending on what gears are in your truck.

I think running 35s with 6 or 9 inches of lift is personal preferance. Some guys on this site have 6" suspension with 3" body lift and others like myself have a 6" lift. I like the wheel wells to be filled with tire others like the open wheel well.
