    Alright guys, i know im gonna get ragged on for wanting to do this to my 2004 2.4l 5 lug regular cab, but i want to do a 6 inch suspension lift,with 35 inch tires, re gear, put an ARB air locker in the back. but my only problem is i cant find a 6 inch suspension lift for my truck, i believe the biggest i found was 4 inches and then maybe i could do a 2 inch body which i dont want to do but anyways im a total noob when it comes to all of this , its just something i want to do. any advice or input would mean alot because im lost:confused:

    Here is the first ragging.
    Dumb idea to lift a 5-lugger. Even dumber to lift it so much.
    Sell it and get a prerunner or 4x4.

    I don't think they even make lockers for your diff. Might be able to
    find a LSD for it though. This would improve your offroad traction,
    and would be the only mod you've mentioned that makes sense.

    Ive seen people build bad ass long travel 5 luggers. 4" wouldn't look bad and the 35"s would look beef on there.

    If youve ever seen the baja 1000 or 500 or a trophy truck they have extended control arms and leaf spring/ links with extended travel to provide for a smoother ride while going fast in the desert.

    ok cool i know exactly what you mean now, is that the only way i would be able to lift it that high is by doing a long travel with different fenders. I mean my grand dad gave me the truck so dont want to see it go, i was just wanting to make it more my style by lifting and whatnot but its looking like that cant happen

    Nah you can shove bigger tires on there with a lift. Some people trim the fenders and other put smaller fiber glass fenders to help clear. Im not sure how big of a lift you need to go for 35's on your gen truck but I was able to get 35's with fenders on my truck with my c/os set around 3"
