    Woohoo I'm the first to vote so it says 100%.

    I voted for the 3 inch lift cause a 6 inch lift would require to many modifications to do correctly

    Yup, although any suspension lift (other than 6") doesn't technically decrease rubbing at full compression.

    Yup, 35's on 3" of lift :headbang:
    Mostly true(a 3" top-plate spacer lift might limit it a tad), but you can always add to the factory bump stop to fix that if its an issue.

    I have a 1st gen and think 3" is just right. 2nd Gens look better with a 6".
