Stuck again. Decisions decisions.
 
So as y'all know I've had quite a hard time deciding what to do to the new truck. Definitely going to do an 8" at some point. However, I just moved back to Tx, started a new job, and am in the process of buying/building a house and getting engaged. Soooooo truck does not need money thrown at it.

Here is the dilemma. Wait and do an 8" when I have the spare cash. Which idk when.

Or....

Get a leveling kit ASAP, and run 35s..... Do I run black method 18x9??? Which may add more money then needed since I'll eventually do 20s or just run stockers on 35x12.50? Just hard going from my last truck to a leveled look... But I could run a leveling kit on 35s for the time being....'decisions decisions.

Sounds like with all that stuff going on it might take a while to round up the cash. But on the other hand if you are buying all new wheels and tires you will already at $2000 or more anyway. I fit were me I would wait to do it right the first time, but I hate spending money on something I know I'm just going to change later anyway. Hope that helps.

That's why I may do level and tires only. All I have to pay for is tires. My offroad shop isn't charging me for level kit and install.

Yeah I would just throw some tires on it and the level and call it quits until you have the money for everything else.

That truck is so clean, it'll look great with just some meaty tires and a good level.

Id do the level and 35's too
Im done with lifting and such.

If I could do it again, I would do a ran runner style build....
But again, its always nice having a tall and big truck. it does turn alot of heads.

But level, 35's, get that house complete, married and then back to the truck

I agree with the ram runner build. I've been following a page on Instagram and some sick trucks on there.

Not saying I dont like my truck now.....I just prefer performance and function.
Ran runner look and wheel specs allow for the truck to still move.

Not so much on 37's

BUT
if I had a diesel, it will be lifted. No questions

I am all for the 35's with the level for the time being until the 8" is financially possible again... Those Cummins look mean with some 35's.

And fast... If it is diesel.. It has to be lifted at some point.. No if, and's or but's..Jack er up.. Massive lift, tires, duel exhaust or stacks and rolling some coal:LOL:

How are you getting the level kit and labor for free? I must be talking to the wrong people!

Yup, I fully agree with this ^^ The stock tires on a 2500 are already way too small IMO. So just leveling it and putting 35's on it will make it look like a completely different truck already make it fairly high.
