Welcome to the club. Skyjacker has a nice, easy to install 3" lift kit for your truck. Check out there website, they have a white 2010 truck with the 3" kit and wheels and tires.

Welcome to the Club!! If you're going to get a lift first and you decide on a 4", then you can run the same set up as I do (see my signature below). Also, if you go with a Rancho 4" lift, you can still use your stock rims, which is great if you can't spend all that money at once.

thank guys! And by the way your truck looks sweet mfleetwood. Also i was thinking about getting the rough country 4.75 so i can run 33s. i have 17 inch rims also on mine and it said it recommended 33 inch tires. Do u get any rubbing on those tires?

I'd stay away from the RoughCountry lift kit. RC has had to many quality and engineering issues in the past. Go with the Rancho or Skyjacker kit.

You need to shop around for Rancho prices. Its going to be alot more than the RoughCountry, but its alot better kit. Most people that say they see nothing wrong with the RoughCountry kit never had a Rancho or Skyjacker. Like I said shop around because alot depends on what part of the country you live. ajarman and mfleetwood both have the Rancho kits and I believe they both have purchased in the past year so maybe they can help you with the price. Where ever you buy it from make sure you get a price quote to your door including shipping, handling, any packing cost etc... Get the complete cost.

I'm not sure about rc but with my rancho, my tires are a little over 34s and they do not rub. And thanks for the comment about my truck!

Currently, Rancho has a $500 rebate if you buy the kit with their best shocks though any supplier/retailer. I picked mine up off of Amazon and the kit was around $1200 and the shocks were about $500 for all four (free shipping). Once I received the rebate, which did take a couple of months, my kit and shocks ended costing me about $1200.

PS......If you are serious about getting a Rancho, YOU BETTER ACT QUICKLY AS THE PROMO ENDS AUGUST 31ST!!!

Welcome aboard. I will let you know I have 18" wheels with 35's on a 3" lift and I do have a little rubbing on some turns. 33's would probably fit a little better!! Good luck with the mods!!
