3" lift installed

Just installed my Ions,TC UCA's and OME leaf packs and I think it turned out nice. Here are some beach pics from the 4th of July. Now I got to get wheels and tires. I'm thinking 285/70/17 but am stumped on what wheel to go with. I was leaning towards the procomp Kightchrome finnish. ANY SUGESTIONS ?

Looks great man. I think a lift like that and removing the flaps makes a world of difference in the appearance of these trucks. Did the installation go pretty smooth for you?

Right on, looks good man! I have the exact same truck as you and I'm also getting Icons and TC ucas. Mind if I ask a few questions? Where did you order from? What did you pay?
What did you do for the rear? Thanx man, looking forward to some pics with the tires and wheels. I'm going to add on matte black 18" monster wheels and the new Nitto Trail tires in 285/65/18.

Its not that hard to do but I have done a couple of lifts before. I think the Upper control arms are the hardest part because you must bend a little sheet metal to get the bolt out. I actually installed the lift using my front end loader on my tractor to lift the truck up. Works better that jack stands if you don't have access to a auto lift.

Thanks! I got everything from Weelersoffroad.com I don't know if its the best deal you can find and I guess if you shopped around you might be able to get some of it cheaper. I'm just lazy and bought it all with them. There shipping was fast and they had all of it in stock. For the back I went with the dakar leaf pack (Old Man Emu) and I really like the overall ride. I looked at some add-a-leafs but figured I would go allout and get the full pack. I have toys that I tow around and the dakars work good for towing to.

Do you have the fronts cranked up to 3.5in or just 3?? I wanna do a similar setup and I wanna know if I can get away with 3 inches in the front and not have the rear set too high with the OME leaf pack setting at 2.75..... Any info or side shot photos would be cool!! Thanks! Looks nice by the way!

I did adjust the Icons up just to level the front with the back.

He seems to be running 35's with 3" of lift... maybe he will elaborate a little. Maybe uber trimage?

I like the KM2's as well. I live in Texas and work in Louisiana I'm racking up the highway miles fast. How is the road noise and tread life on those bad boys?

The 3" lift doesn't look too bad with 265's. I might get some bfg AT so it should look a little more bigger right?

Yea don't get me wrong, 285s are niceee. But my mom is planning on buying me some new tires for my bday. But I think the 285s are out of my moms price range. But what are the price differences anyway? But I just daily drive my truck so the 285s may be a big hit on the mpg. But I don't know they would look nice haha
