Comparing apples and oranges, Brandon.

Shane also has IFS... Where as the TTB (although an IFS, it's a SAS/IFS hybrid) can be lifted much higher. I'd say go with a 3in body lift, 2in coil spacers with the 6in suspension lift and maybe some different leafs for more rear lift, swap out to an explorer rear end upgrade to the steel 1 piece driveline so when you put your 302 in, you won't break as much stuff. Then run 37's FTW!

Shane has a totally different truck with totally different fenders and totally different suspensions and the starting ride heights are totally different.

Apples to Oranges much?

I wouldn't go anymore than 35s on the stock front end. It isn't meant to hold up to that much rotating mass. IF you want 37s, you may as well sas it.

yea that will give you enough power to burn them 35s off then you will have to get 37s cause you wont have any 35s left lol .. i take it you like pro comp with hearing you want to pro comp tires on top of your pro comp lift.. its a good name and product.. never used it on anything but from hearing the name their good on everything for wheeling
