Does anyone know if a rough country 5in lift is any good? And if it isn't what brand should I get. Also I'm clueless about what rims I want to put on it. I also want them to show the wheel a little outside the fenderwells but I don't know the correct backspacing I would use for that. I wanna put 37in mud grapplers on it cause they look sick but I heard a lot of good things about the toyos too. Help me decide and give me some names of some nice looking rims. Thanks
06 cummins - bone stock for now
As far as the lift goes, you may have to run something around 6" to clear the Toyo's since they are wider than most 37's. If you do some checking around on here you won't find too many good reviews on the RC lift. They tend to ride pretty rough due to some very stiff front springs.
As far as wheels go, look for something in 9" wide with a backspace between 5"-5.75" . This will be wider than stock but not be so wide that it hits the fenders when you turn.
go atleast 6in. some on here will say you can do it with a 4.5in, 2in. or no lift but all bs aside if you want to do it right the first time pay a little more for a quality lift that wont jar your teeth. if you have some cash to spare you might want to consider a long arm upgrade also. as for tires....whatever you think looks the best, i love the way grapplers look but they are kinda noisy, and im currently running a set of toyo mts and looking for a reason to get rid of them. you should check out a mickey thompson mtz, good tires and not priced to high either.

I have the rough country with with dual front shocks. I don't have any complaints on how it rides. I have Kumho A/T tires. They ride great and wear even better. They are 355.70 18 I think so they are wide. Should be a 37 x 14 but really is more like a 36 x 13.5. Either way, they fit well and no rub.
I wouldn't spend the extra cash for Toyos. I've been there, done that. Only lasted 30k and my last Kumhos went 50k with more to go. Discount Tire had the Kumhos cheap with free shipping!! You decide.

Are you thinking of staying 17" ? if so most of the manufacturers go in metric offsets not backspace so what I run on my 07 are 17x9 + 12mm these stick out about an inch and a half. if you run a lift I would also run a 6" and then the 37's will fit nice. Check out the yokohama M/T it is directional and pretty quiet for a mud. I wholesale tires and have found the Nitto m/t to be way to loud as you actually would think your being chased by a pack of bees. They cup very easily which means the tread blocks start to lift and cause an uneven surface that a) make them even louder and b) ride like crap. Hope this helps.
