    here is the situation, I have a set of 33x12.50R18 Nitto Mud Grapplers. If you were in this situation which lift setup would you use 3" or 6", to clear these tires? I am thinking 3" procomp, but what are your ideas? any help would be greatly appreciated. Post pics if you have any too!!

    The main complaint about the ProComp 3" lift is that it rides rough.

    IMO 6" lifts with only 33's looks silly.

    Yes but I'm not sure why you are stuck on the procomp. There are much better lift options out there...

    pro comp is stiff but very affordable and is good on and off road.....theres always a better option at a price...procomp is a FULL 3in lift and everyone that has it says the same thing its stiff but they love it.....

    thanx for the complement buddy look forward to seeing your truck ridin high on them 33's :)

    I would say that for the same money as the procomp, 5100s with eibachs and a thin top plate spacer will offer a better ride with the same amount of lift. The mono tube shock will ride much nicer...

    I have a 3” Procomp lift, 17x9 RBP 93R wheels with a 4.5” backspace, and 305/65/17 Procomp Xtreme AT tires. Yep, stiff ride, but I LOVE the look.

    i had bilsteins and eibachs on my last build. rode pretty smooth, but i wasnt sold on how much it actually lifted the truck. my 285's rubbed pretty bad with that set up.I more than likely wont take that route again
