A 4" and 35's look great toghter. I wanted that myself. Good height for towing and it just fits well. That being said I plan on a 6" now since I want a wheel with a more aggressive offset than a 4" will clear and a 35x13.5" tire.

I was in this same position a month ago, researching and debating the various brands and heights. I knew I wanted a fairly aggressive, decent height that would allow for 35's, and have good ground clearance from that. I went with the Zone 6" and 35/12.50/18 Toyos, and Im very pleased so far. The only thing left will be the Bilstein 5100 leveling struts to get the front end more equal to the rear. I just personally think 37s on a half ton are maybe a bit too much. That's ALOT more weight there. My buddy on my shift has a real nice 3500 with a 6" Rough Country and 37's. Truck looks awesome. But he says those 37s even draw down that Cummins a little on torque. Hope this helps.

I was thinking the same thing... with some 12" wide wheels they'd be out of my flares about 2 inches. Right now I'm currently running a leveling kit with 33 12.50 20s and 10 inch wide rims, low and wide. Looks good, and I get lots of complaments on the truck. I'm just wanting a bigger look and would like to still stand out from the rest of the pack and not do what everyone else does... although keeping my rims and going with 4" and 35's would still get me more hieght and keep my wide look as well as being even with my flares, thus easier to keep clean and cheaper because I wouldn't have to buy new rims too

I would go with 6". I went 4" once on a full size Ford and regreted not going 6". In my opinion, go for a simple leveling kit or go the full 6".
