Default Bds lift

Ok so I'm thinking about finally getting my 6" lift. I have decided to go with bds with fox shocks but can't really find it and am a little confused. Why will 18" wheels work but not stock 18s ? How much does this cost ? And how different will the ride be if I get them with or without the fox shocks? I have stock 18 fc4 wheels and 295/70/18 wheels they were not cheap so I want to keep them with my 6" lift I have the money just don't know what do get. I want a smooth ride as well as a sweet lift 👍

I don't think the stock wheels will work because of the back spacing. My friend has the BDS with fox shocks and it rides awesome, better than stock in my opinion.

you can use stock wheels with 1" or larger wheel spacers/adapters. Those shocks are awesome!

I bought mine for $100 per. So if they are new $75 would save someone some money.
