    I would just go for the suspension lift. If you want to go for bigger tires later then you are one step ahead of the ball game.

    I've been accused of having wheelbarrow tires. :laugh:

    WHat's the purpose of having a lift if you're not putting bigger tires on?

    Oops - just noticed you already got nice wheels - you'll just need new shoes after the lift.

    Do what makes you happy, man. I'm super happy with my lift, just want more stuff. Want NOW. Need wheels, tires, TC UCA's, window tint ... It never ends. :D

    X2. Even if it does look a little funny with stock tires, at least you "have" a lift on your truck. Then you could just get the bigger tires down the road when you have the money.;) It was funny because I had wheels/tires before I even had a lift! They were 33"s so I "had" to put a lift on it!!

    if you go with a levelling kit or anything less than 3", id get some 265/70/17 or 265/75/17 tires. if you go 3" might as well get 285's!

    I thought my 3" lift looked a little ridiculous at the end with 33" tires. But I didn't have fender flares so it looked like there was a lot of extra wheel well.

    Maybe its the pic but the wheels just look little.

    Disclaimer: That truck is no longer with us but various pieces are still in service - RIP
