Keep in mind, your measurement is factoring in your 35's vs 37's/38's
You got a 3" body lift vs OP's 1.25"

Adding any of those 2 will increase your overall height by another 1"-1.5"
So you have room my friend.....

Adding the Bilsteins will just make even more room for some 40's but 38's will do

I believe my math is correct
4.5 strut spacer
1.0 coil spacer
3" body front

Vs

5.5 strut spacer
2.8 bilsteins
1.25 body front

So 8.5 vs 9.55 not taking tires into account.

What backspacing is that? Also what lift you runnin? You could more than likely get away with 37s but definately upgrade them struts if you want 38s.

40s......seriously!? Even with 38s I would replace that entire front ends suspension and drivetrain. Hell most of these guys with heavy 37s should look into it if they ever plan to use their truck as a truck or leave the pavement

This is the only reason I miss my 06 Cummins, I had plans on an 8" and 40s before switching to the 2012 1500.... With the 2500 I didnt have to worry about the front end. Although the trans scared me. With the 1500 I know i am pushing it if I go with 37s in two weeks.

Dang... I should've gotten a 2012 Cummins... Still debating on trading in, I have two more weeks
