Well I got a 6" bds on a trade. I'm considering selling it or just using it and get some coilovers and cranking the hell out of them. Which will probably mean I have to get a bodylift.

When I first put mine on I was at 7.5" in front. If I woulda been at 8.5" ( which you can do with a 6" bds and a 2.5" level) it would've helped a lot. A little more trimming and it woulda been fine. I just didn't because I knew I was gonna do the BL.

There's a member on here running 37's on 14's with just a 6" RCX lift. But he's got fiberworx front fenders and an aftermarket bumper. He said he still rubs.

Damn so I guess there's no avoiding a bodylift with a 6" to run 14's.

If you run the bds, add a 2.5" level, you could do it with some creative trimming. There is a guy on instagram with a 6" bds with a 3" hellbent level stacked(which I wouldn't recommend) and he runs 37's on 14's. But from looking at his pics, it's got to rub. They just too close. I would say if you want 37's, do the BL too. That way you have plenty of room, and can drive without tearing your bumper and fenders up. I'm happy with mine. Just get a reputable shop to do the install.

Thanks for the help. I think your right, I would rather have room then cut into my bumper and fenders.

There is a guy on here running 22x11 on 37 Nittos with just a 6in lift and 2in leveling kit on that. Although 14 are what -76 right? That's some stance!
