A 3" leveling kit will be the best option for you to keep the truck practical as a work truck and give you a bit of a bigger, meaner look on the truck. The best option is going to be 3" leveling...

There's no way you're pulling a 5th wheel with a 1500. I'm sure the pin weight on that trailer is double your payload.

With 35's you can keep the 3.73's and still have a well functioning truck. It will be a little slower off the line and obviously turning lower rpm at any given speed but that's about it. If you do...

But... but... I have a 4" exhaust :gy:

In all seriousness though I'd agree with Shawn. the 18" oval will probably sell the best as it's the most popular option guys will want.

I mounted mine right about the spare tire mount in my 1500. You'll get very little water up there if any. I didn't have any issues with it running it through the raining season in BC.
