I have a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT 2WD. My truck has a 7" CST lift right now. I was thinking about getting a 3" body lift but I had one concern. Would my tires look too small? I have 35's and I definitely cannot upgrade for a while. Let me know what ya'll think. :thk:

Man i wouldnt touch a thing.. Good lookin truck!

Yeah I would think they might look a little small, it's really a tough call though because they are 35's. But I'd go with waiting for the 3" til you can get your hands on some 37's.

Google had this pic of a 2nd gen, has 7" susp 3" body on 35" tires

Ya, i'd wait till you can get some 37's or 38's.

I would wait too, but if it were my truck I'd leave it where it's at. It looks damn good!

Lonestar, what kind of MPGs are you getting? How much was the lift installed? and what kind of tires do you have?

The lift w/ installation costed roughly $2,200. I have Nitto Terra Grapplers, and I get decent mileage. It's not great, but it's decent. Let's just say that I refrain from flooring it.

Leave it the way it is and buy something else, or wait until you can go 37"

Yes the 35s will look a little small. I just finished putting the 3" BL on my truck today and I already had a 6" lift on it. I do have a 4x4 which is a little taller then yours from factory but it would be close since you have a 7" lift. Anyways I have 35s on it right now but 40s sitting on the floor waiting to be put on. Here are some pics to give you an idea of what your will look like:
