Leveling kit was $80 shipped from Hell Bent Steel. I ran them for over a year with stock length shocks with out problems, but I replaced them with shocks for a +2" lift, which were $45-$50 a shock and the ride is much better!
Those are 35x12.5x17, but my next set will probably be 315s. 315s are still going to rub but the rubbing isn't actually that bad. Our animal shoot is in a weird place and backing a live stock trailer into can be tough so I need all the turning radius this long of a truck has.
New set of wheels isn't in the budget yet so I have 1.75" spacers. It's not something I would really recommend, although I haven't had any problems they are only a temporary fix.
If your alright with a little bit of rubbing (which is only at full turn) then I would say just go with 315/70/17. You can do this all at a process, 35s or 315s will fit without a leveling kit
