Can't complain either way for sure. 35s are definitely my favorite size of tire. Cus you still have the decent everyday driveability and the nice look of the height. Win, win in my book.

Yea I agree, but, with that 4" and d60 he will be able to fit 37s no problem... 6" would be overkill with a 35" tire...anyways, Racin what type of tire were you thinking? You wouldn't want to do any burnouts with 1200$ rubbers lol

I like 33's with 3" lift...it looks good and still gives the mileage you can use for DD. I have the 90 with a 3" lift and a set of 33's for it. Thats just what I use....

So here is some pics of the truck, Its hard to tell from the pics, but its got a metal flake in it that really pops in the sunlight. They missed a few small dings when they were doing the body work, but all the bigger stuff they fixed and looks great, Im pretty sure Ill put a few dings in it anyway, so no big deal.

Also got my Stereo in, and some Fosgate 6"x9"s and Quinn 6-1/2" in the doors, Probably overkill for the truck, but sounds good when turned up ...

Also today I took the truck down to Sandy, OR and picked up a D60/10.25/4" lift kit. Ran great the whole way, and I think I probably avg'd about 16-17mpgs, not great, but not bad for 4.10's Turning 2200rpm@60mph.

Anyway, here is some pics of the junk...

Im thinking this thing will look excellent with some 35"s, about 6" higher, and not so raked. Im thinking about going with some 18" rims and some MT type tire that has decent road behavior. I would like to find a decent wheel thats simple, and not junked up with a bunch of fake rivets and bolts, and five different shades of grey, but still at the same time retain a modern look (No sawtooth mags lol). We'll see, gotta do some research...

Something Like that may work, but I think the ratio of 20's to 35 inch tires is just a bit too much... I think 18's would be perfect... Im trying to find something that is more radial in design as opposed to circular though, I think it adds more to the look...

Anyway, I have to do some searching lol...

6" lift with 35 and a 60 will look rediculus my 350 is on 35s with no lift and looks pretty good when I had it on a two post lift doing the exhast I found it would look petty good with 2-4 inches but it already rides rough enough.
