    If you have a 1500 i would do the 6 inch lift with the 35's.

    You already have the 3" might as well make it 9"

    the thing thats keeping me from running 37s is the regearing
    you guys think a 9" with 35 will look fine?

    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.

    X2...You are asking for problems putting 37's on a 1500's axles and unless you have at least 4.10 gears you are probably going to want to re-gear even with 35's.

    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.
