9" lift with 35s or 36s?
i have a 2000 1500 silverado and i was thinking about going with a 6" lift with my 3" body lift already on it. with 35s or 36s and 4.56 gears. i wanna go as big as a 1/2 ton would allow
how do you guys think this setup would look? knowing i have a 1500 4x4 would make it a couple inches shorter then a 2500.
you think a 9" lift would make the tires look a bit too small? ive gotten a couple inputs from members on this site but would like some more opinons. pictures would be great.

A six inch suspension lift with your 3 inch body lift would look awesome. Id stick with 35 inch tires and 4.56 gearing will allow you to pull those tires easily. I wouldnt go over 6 inches in the suspension lift because anymore is just impractical for a daily driver. You'll have one sweet truck then.1995 Silverado,Z71, 3-inch lift,2-inch leveling kit, SkyJacker Suspension, short ram-air intake, throttle body spacer, MSD ignition coil, straight pipes

The only thing i would be worried about, is with all that tension, from the 36" tires, and the 4.56 gear ratio, on our 1/2 ton axles. That would be my only concern. Fitment, and looks, definitely i would go with the 36" tires. Is both tires width 12.5"? Because most 36" tires are 13.5 or more. That's why i'm saying the 36" tires might be a little too much. I would go 36" tires with if they're 12.5" width.
