i really wanna run km2's and i think at my current setup they will still look a little small. so if i drop back it should be ok but with the lower setting the ride should be better, plus easier on the front end. fast got a price on 1" rear spacer?

I'm another person that had 6", maxed bilstiens and 3" body.....I also lowered it. Not a good look and rides and handles too outa wack for me!

Newfie them KM2s run small bro. And of course any tire is gonna lose a good inch or more once on the truck. So make sure you get BIG size!

Thats unmounted with no weight. BFG is terribly small. Wander over to a Jeep forum or two...the norm is a size or two below what you actually purchase.

That's one of the reasons I wanted to run the KM2 40s...actual measure out to be 38s on the truck. I just dont have it like that

If you guys could go back and change your lifts do you think you would got with a 4" suspension instead of 6" with the 3" body lift?

I've got 3" body and Bilsteins now, and torn between 4" or 6" suspension. A big factor is that I really don't wanna run bigger than the 35s I have.

Is ANYONE on this forum running a 4" suspension, 3" body, and Bilsteins on 35s? I'd love to see a pic.

My 35's look massive to me with the 3" lift. Maybe it's the wheels that make the tires look bigger. Anyways, I feel like a 4" suspension might look great on there. 6" would be to big for the 35s, and 37s are out of the question. The tranny already wants to kill me.
