4" Rcx Lift with 1.25 body lift question
 
I have recently leveled my 2011 with a 2.5" hbs leveling kit but i'm bored of it already haha. I was wondering if the 4" suspension with the 1.25" body lift would look weird if i ran 33x12.50x18. Would 18s look to small or would it look fine if i ran it with a 35" tire? Also how would the 2.5" leveling kit look with the body lift instead? Would the 33x12.50s look better on that? I don't do any offroading either. I'm unsure what to do at this point haha, any suggestions would help alot! Thanks.

If you're going with a 4" lift and the 1.25" body lift I would definitely be going with 35's. the 33's will look really small on that set up. If you kept the level and did the body lift the 33's would definitely look better but I'd still run 35's....

Even running them on 18s do you think it would still look fine?

tires will look tiny, id go with 35s to fill in that big gap in your fenders

me too, basically same price as a 4'' and body lift... and the money you save on installing a body lift could equal out the tire price

Ya there's quite a few guys that run 35's on 18" rims. I think that's what gonefishin776 is running right now so you could check out some of his pictures. I've definitely seen pictures of guys running them on 17" rims too.

37's on a 6" lift would definitely be the coolest but seeing as he has a 4.7 I understand where he's coming from with not wanting to go so big.

Yeah at my age and the time i was looking i was only able to afford the 4.7l but now i'm kinda of regretting but i still love the truck! If anything i would do 4" suspension with 35x12.50x18s

Yup I'm in the same boat. I'm hoping to get 35x12.5x20's pretty quick and then I'm debating weather I want to go with a 4" or 6" lift down the road. For the small price difference I'm very tempted to go with the 6" even if my tires do look a little small.

I only have mine leveled now and i don't want any rub if i go with 35x12.50x18s so still unsure what to do. I think 4" suspension with 35.12.50x18s would fit perfectly.
