Default Re: How much to lift my truck

Honestly, to keep your driveability up, I wouldn't go more than a 32" tire. Of course, this is also dependant on what your gear ratio is and if you've got a 4.0 or 3.0. I like 3" BL and 31's like I posted above.

I agree. Considering it will be On road use only. 31's would be prefect.

wat gear ratio do u have? 31's should have a problem im running stock 3.73 gears with 33x12.5 with a 6" lift. its slow and gas mileage sucks but when u lift a truck ur not looking for the mileage

^^ Tag on the axle is where your size is and I assume he means shouldn't 'cause I'm like him, 33s on 3.73... it's not ideal but it works.

31's on an otherwise stock truck is nothing..... hell, 98-07 torison bar trucks all came with 30.5's or 31's....regardless of 4.0 or 3.0, 3.73 or 4.10.

I would recommend doing it yourself, for the fact that they will charge you up the ass for the install.
