    35s shredded that powder nicely. Sorry to de-rail this thread. Yes I'll take an SAS. Absolutely!

    So a 3"-4" lift and some 33 or 35 tires, but W/the 35s you have to do frame work?


    Brands/Links?

    Frame work? Not really. Just cut a small section of the body mount. Look up the cab mount chop. It is not very major. Yes it is doable.

    There's a few guys running 35s and 3" lift.

    I have 3" with 33s. Not much rubbing for me. Only because I haven't really went offroading with the new tire size yet so I can't say about rubbing offroad. Barely rubbing on flat. Only in reverse when wheel is turned all the way. Go 3-4" with 33s. It looks nice. Or what Jamie did and go with 35s and chop the heck out of your frame. :D

    True. Some people have went crazy. The set up you have is too nice. OP, if you wanted to do the mount chop and get correctly backspaced wheels and/or wheels spacers and don't mind about mpg much, do what spoonman has done.

    3 inch lift with 35s has be done many times. just time and money.
    -cab mount chop
    -gears front and rear
    -new rims with proper back spacing
    -new tires
    -lift kit
    if you are not able to do the work in order to fit 35 it can defiantly become expensive having a shop do it for you. if i were you i would look into it more.

    If you get a 6" lift might as well go SAS.

    When I sas, I hope to be sitting the same height I'm at now, or lower. Sas doesn't mean height!

    If you want a 4" go with rcd ,bds , zone (made by bds) both have a 4" lift as well. On the bds and zone you can always upgrade later to make it into a 6" if you decide to go that route but atleast you will have that option unlike sticking with a 3".

    Made by BDS? Where do you get your information, looks the same because the guys that started Zone worked for other lift manufacturers and decided to go out on their own, i might be mistaken but I believe they manufacture there own product, regardless they sell a great product and provide great customer service, I have installed a few of there lifts
