nice job on the body kit,Looks clean.

Well you should def go with at least 35's,anything smaller,don't bother as you would be taking away from the look of your lifts.Now tho,with a total of 9inches of lift,and if you can afford it,go with 38's.Also if you can afford it,you would most likely want to re-gear as you would loose mpg and power with that size lift and 38's.38's would also fill your wheel wall in nice.....Their is a guy on this forum that has done what your looking to do.Go find him,he is from Georgia,but i cannot remember his name.If i remember,i will post it later....

Hey do me a favor if you can.Get a full side pic of you truck and post it.Also did you move the back hitch all the way up to make it look good?I'm curios to see how higher yours is????

Thanks bud.All i know is that dillons truck is wicked and all he has done to it.If this guy who started the thread,does in fact go the same rout,will be wicked as well.I am thinking of doing the 4inch rancho on mine,then the 3inch body lift with 35's so nicely fill in the wheel walls.I wouldn't mind doing the 9inch lift on mine like he is going to do,but 35's would look way to small.i have seen a guy with a custom 7inch lift kit from moose's here where i live at,and he has 35's and looks pretty good as his also a 150..

i personally think the the 4" rancho and 35's is the perfect fit, fills the wheel wells nicely, ATOM had that setup before he sold it, he hasnt been on in a while but he said the rancho actually gave him over 5 inches of lift
