How big of a lift with 35" Tires

I've just bought 20" KMC XD Addicts wrapped in 35" Nitto Terra Grapplers and realized I can't get away with just a 3" body lift. I'm assuming I'll have to do the full 6" lift, cutting the cross member, but I wanted to see if anyone has done this before.

I have the TSB done in the rear, and a 3" leveling kit in the front. The truck is leveled out right now. I was thinking of doing a 3" body lift as it stands now, but I don't think these tires will fit.

Also, do I need to change the gearing running this size tire?

Any advice is appreciated. If you've worked with any particular products and have advice, good or bad, it would be much appreciated.

Ideally 6" for 35's but people run 35's on 3" w/ cutting.

If you are a prerunner, you wont need to cut the crossmember.

+1

Cutting the cross member is only for 4x4s. It allows room for the front drive shaft when the front diff is lowered. Prerunner = no front drive shaft and no cutting.


But you would be better off just getting spindles and running billies on a Prerunner instead of a drop bracket lift.

not all 35's rub horribly, my mud grapplers pretty bad on the sway bar but my trail grapplers only hit at full turn, and also barely touch the body

Cut the cross member to fit 35's or cut the fender? I think I would cut the fender. Also to me, fitting big tires with the least amount of lift and the most articulation is awesome.
