If you want MPG's and longevity? Leave it alone! I suggest the Zone 5" kit if your wanting 35-37s. I have it on my 08' HEMI and I'm gonna put one under my 06' Mega Cab 5.9. I've run 4 different lifts on that truck now and this is the only one I've liked. The talk about a lift looking bigger on a diesel truck is nonsense. Doesn't even make sense? That common rail ways more than my HEMI with the trans and T-case still attached. Yes, some makers claim to have different packages for diesels. Fact is, if you look at the part numbers, they are the same. It's just them giving you a reach around. If you do jump up in tire size, I'd also suggest getting a bigger brake set up. With my 35s and stock brakes I couldn't even lock them up. My 37s, I couldn't lock them up on wet pavement! Power stop truck and tow kit was worth it's weight in gold. Now it doesn't matter? When I get on the brakes, I stop. New truck is getting those too.
