    Whats your budget? What size tires and rims do you want? Do you want to Re-gear? Going offroad alot or is your truck a street queen?


    If I ever lift my truck, Im going with a 6" rough country with a 2" body lift, 35" toyo mt's and keep my 20x10's.

    Or I will throw a 7-9 Cognito on if i want to spend a little more.

    Budget is the big one. How much are you willing to spend. If budget is of no concern I say Cognito 10" to 12" lift.

    I like about a six inch lift. But thats just my 2 cents.

    Without seeming too much like a tool, 2-4 inch lift and 33s if you are not planning on going off road much. Why suffer the worse milage and the extra expense of re-gearing issues with 35s when 33s do most everything 35s will, without a number of the cons? I think ridiculously lifted trucks are kinda cool, but if you plan on doing a lot of driving why not get something that is a little more practical and still looks cool?
