    i am not going to because with my new tires and rims those tires are a little more than a 35 and they rubbed a little so i think 37's is a no go unless you get coilovers and a 2" spacer in the front and a bigger block in the rear.

    Yeah you should be able to go with the suspension and leveling kit, just don't stack blocks in the rear. So you can either go with 1 larger block in the rear or do a block plus an add-a-leaf to give you the lift you need in the rear.

    the total cost of my lift is unknown. i bought it with the lift. it looks like a 3" block in the rear also. its the pro comp stage 1 lift and i have had no problems with it at all.

    Now that I have learned more I come to find out
    1. the pro comp set up for my 2008 didn't leve room in arms for the inner housing vac lines, The locking hub inner housing. HAd to modify the aftermarket bracket.
    2. the frt was higher than the rear ( didn't Like that) so now I am playing with frt struts and rear blocks ( possible Add a leaf to the rear springs)
    I always end up trying to fine tune my modifications to be the best way
    3. I want to lengthen my drive shaft as per needs but I need to finish getting my truck to where I am happy 100%

    I took my truck to the sand dunes for the first time and the 35's worked great the truck worked great. I din't need to lower tire pressure the tires worked as expected 35 x 13 wide great flotation

    Well I wanted 35's for tires. A leveling kit woudn't work for me. So I put a pro comp 6" suspension kit on mine. I wanted the back level with the frt or even 1" higher in the back. so I have been playing around with different ways to have my way. I didn't want to spend the money on Pro Comp Strut which were around 1000 to 1100 so I bought Bilstein 5100 struts for 390.00 there were two setting for the lower spring plate. I used the lowest setting in order to set the frt around 5" I adde only 3" in the rear using the stock block also. All this was as per the Suspension shop that instaled my Pro Comp Set up

    Man nice setup. One more question. Stock rims won't fit with a 6 inch lift because of backspacing right?

    I spent close to $4k for everything (lift $1325, labor $650, wheels & tires combined $2100) through in a few other things like 5" lift blocks for the rear to replace the 2" blocks the Fabtech kit comes with and boots for the rear shocks. Originally though I had Helo Maxx 6 wheels and Pro Comp Xtreme AT's. They were stolen off the truck about a year ago so the repair shop where I had the truck had to replace them. What I have on there now (XD Monsters & Pro Comp MTs) ran about $3200. Let me know if you have any other questions.
