It is time! Thuren 3"?

Hello fellas! This is a great place with alot of good information!

I have an 06 2500 Cummins and my stock shocks are done for. I am thinking about doing a Thuren 3" lift. I would like to clear some 35" x 12.50 (or even 35x13) tires on 9" wide wheels (what i have now), but maybe 10" wide in the future. Will this clear on a Thuren 3" lift?

And pictures of people with this 3" lift and stating your tire/wheel sizes would help alot!
I would just like to get a good idea of the stance of the truck.

I have been browsing around for the past 2 hours and figured I should probably post something, lol.

I wouldnt run a 13" wide tire on a 9" rim. Just run 35/12.50s or 37's. Wouldnt go bigger than a 9" rim also with the right backspacing. the 4 pics below are 37's on stock wheels and then 35's on a 20x10 wheel. The last pic of the tire sticking out is when I had the 20x10. Stuck out to far, wore out ball joints quickly and would rub alittle...

Thanks, looks good...

What kind of shocks do you recommend running with the thuren 3" setup that doesnt hurt the wallet to much?
I was going to go for the bilstein 5100s but...?

Can't go wrong with Thuren 285/75's. I suggest spending a bit more and get at least the Fox 2.0's. You won't regret it.

Depends on how agressive you want to get, you could run some 2.5's or 2.65's. If you get really aggressive you can go 3.0's

Run his Fox 2.0's. Best bang for the buck. If your gonna push the truck pretty hard, pony up the $$ and just get the 2.5's with stage 2 or stage 3.

What all did you do to get the front end of your truck to articulate like that? Is that just thuren springs and carli arms? Looks like the swaybar has been removed?

Very nice truck!!

Thanks!

I just did all the basic stuff:

Carli arms, diff guard, and high mount stabilizer, Thuren Springs, 3in fox shocks, 08 steering, braced the PS box and some up-side down hydro-bumps that let me get every bit of up-travel.

I have a KORE sway bar but I never use it, it turns the truck from a almost pre-runner to a nas-truck (no joke it's scary how well it handles corners).
