Your truck looks perfect, so I'll be looking into 35's as well. Thanks again
Thanks for the compliment dvarn!! Good luck getting your set up. Looking forward to seeing it all on the truck once you get it!

I don't know, bud. I have a 6" Zone lift on my 1500, and I might have to go against the grain on the whole 37's thing. I debated on this issue also when I had my lift installed, and my truck is equipped with the 3.92 rear. What ultimately sold me on doing the 35's follows:
1. Weight--the weight per tire when comparing 37's versus 35's, brand by brand, is significant. This is something you should consider when looking at our half tons' independent front suspension. I believe you are asking alot of it, especially in 4 wheel drive situations. Also, even with our 4th gen Hemi turning them, those 37's are really gonna drag you down in the torque curve, ESPECIALLY with 3.55 gearing! Do guys run 37's on that set-up? Sure. Do they even run 38's and 40's on a 1500? Absolutely. They are out there. Is it the optimal, best thing to do? Debatable.....
2. Price--Check this out. It's a big difference.
3. Clearance/overall appearance--I have attached a pic of my 2013 1500 Sport as it sits now with the 35/12.50/18 Toyos for your reference. Could I have fit 37's up under it? Sure, all day long with no issues. Are the 37's 'cooler' and 'bigger' than my 35's? Absolutely, no doubt. But after having them on for the last 2,000 miles, I honestly could not be happier with how they look and how my truck sits and rides with the 6" lift. I feel that the 6" does not offer enough height to clear the 37's without the truck having a 'stuffed' appearance. Just my own opinion.
4. Testimonial from a friend--Buddy of mine has a 3500 Laramie with the Cummins. He put a 6" Rough Country with 37/12.50/18's on it. BEAUTIFUL rig...baddest RAM I've ever seen. And he tells me that those damn 37's even drag him down some...so if that tells you anything performance-wise.
I hope I didn't discourage you, but helped out in your making an informed decision. Think about it good before you pull the trigger, and definitely ask the various 4 wheel vendors out there, their professional opinions. I think you will hear the same things I stated above (because I just went down this road myself--ha)!
Good luck, dude, can't wait to see the finished product!

Thanks. I've ordered a BDS 6" lift to go with the 35x12.5 Toyo's. Can't wait to get it installed and show her off.
