Default 08 1500 2wd Lifted

Finally got around to posting my latest mods. Added a 3" front spindle lift and 2" blocks in the rear. I did the entire lift myself and it was pretty easy. I highly suggest having a strong air gun (at least 700 torque lbs). I picked a good one up at Harbor Freight for like $100 (Earth Quake). Anyways pretty easy, just somewhat time consuming. Pleased with the results and was very cheap. $260 for the front spindles and $40 for the block kit. *Note, our axles are much larger around and standard block lift U-bolts will not fit. I lucked out - went to 4-Wheel parts and the guy sold me some used U-bolts for $20!!! Anyways added some Pro Comp 35 x 12.50 Xtreme A/Ts. Now I want to add 3" body lift next. Pics are the day I bought my truck (used) and just after I finished the lift, b/f the tires were added.

Looks great. Do your 35's fit ok or do you have slight rubbing? I just did a 4" spindle lift on my 2007 and need opinions on tire sizes.

Only slight rub when I turn fully to the right. I hate the Pro Comp Xtreme A/T I have on. Thinking about a less wide A/T. Although I bought the tires used they have worn down very quickly.
