Anyone running a 6" lift with 35's? I've got 35" Nitto Mud Grapplers on a leveling kit. I want to sit up higher then the 4" lift but don't want to get rid of my tires since they've only got about 5 or 6000 miles on them. I may go with 37's in the future but I don't want the 35's to have too much space with the 6".

So if anyone's got some pics of a 6" lift with 35's, let's see em. :drool2:

Sorry no pics, but i know a guy with a 6" lift on a 2003 3/4 ton running 35x1250x20 mud grapplers and it looks great. Doesnt look like a small tire and big lift look. Could go 37's but like you said, i would wait till you need new rubber IMO.

35's dont look bad at all, but 37's just look a bit better. I ran with 6" and 35's for a while and didnt mind the look at all

I run a 6" lift with 35" tires. I think it looks good.

This is an old pict of my truck when I had the 6" lift installed. I had been running a 2" leveling kit and 35x12.50s on the stock wheels. Hope this helps.

Much of it is going to depend on how aggressive the tires' tread looks. 35'' toyo MTs look pretty good on my 3'' lift but the toyo ATs look much smaller because of the smoother sidewall and less aggressive tread design. I want to go with 37'' yokos but dont want to regear.

I think a 6'' lift would look best with 37"s.

Nice truck joe, could you give the specs of your truck,lift,tires and also after you did the lift any rubbing issues after the lift.

I want to do the same with mine.

Mud Guppy, I'm in East Tx. It's not worth it for me to get rid of the tires though. I'm still paying for them and I don't need to pay for new ones yet :$: I'll get 37's eventually I'm sure, but for now I'll keep the 35's. I'm just deciding if I want to lift soon or wait until I need tires and do it all at once with 37's. If anyone knows where I can find a money tree, let me know :lol4:

Thanks SouthTexMega, in the pict the lift is a 6" tuff country with stock 17x8 polished wheels with 6.5" BS and 35x12.50x17 BFG MTs. They had tons on clearence with the exception of the tires slightly rubbing the upper control arm at full turn (due to the huge backspacing).

Now I have the 6" susp and 3" body lift. Wheels are 20x10 MT Classic IIs with 4.5" BS with 38.5x14.50x20 Pro Comp Xtreme ATs.

I was looking to stretch the 6" to an 8" lift but my front end decided to take a crap and I got to replace the hubs and sealed bearings so now repairs are in the works rather than mods. lol Good Luck.

I hear everyone saying the mud grapplers don't last but i've had good luck with these. I've got probably 6k on em now and about 80% is highway. There is still plenty of tread on them. I do need to get them rotated but I've just been careful with my driving on them, keeping them rotated, and watching my pressure and they look almost new still.
