    Hey everyone, this is my first thread and im new to the forum thing so bare with me. I'm getting ready to purchase a lift for my 01 ext cab 4X4. I want the fabtech 6" but what tire size is best (33's or 35's?) that wont rub. Also, does anyone know where the cheapest place to buy the Fabtech 6" online is? But most important....does anyone have any pictures of what the fabtech looks like on there truck?

    I would put 35's and deal with rub issues, but i only have a 3" lift. You will have to re gear your truck to 4.88's because of weight and size of your tires. good luck and post pics when you lift up! One last thing dont buy it from 4Wheelparts.com they sell at retail, I would search google, craigslist, and ebay for one.

    I've got a 6" Fabtech lift with 35's and no issues. I didn't have to re-gear either.
    I just installed the new bushwacker cut out flares. Once my tires wear out, I'm putting 37" tires on.

    I have a fabtech 6" with 35s and did some minor trimming to the front inner bumper and that's about it, I love it

    I've done some minor engine mods that helped out a lot. Mods, headers, high performance Cats, K&N cool intake and a performance chip.
