Default can i get 35's?? anyone with this setup?

well... let the modding begin...
bought my 2004 ram about 4 weeks ago and im about to start modding her...
since it is an 04 and only 2wd im trying to find cheapER ways to do things...

my dads buddy has a real niice ram all did up but he wants even newer wheel/ tire set up.. sooo... im buying his old wheels/tires for a pretty great price...

they are the 17" MOTO METAL 951's on 35x12.50x17 TOYO OPEN COUNTRY M/Ts with over one year left on em.....

now i was just going to do a 3" suspension lift on my truck but that was before i came across this awesome deal.. i talked to the guy at rough country and he said i would either have to do the 6" suspension lift or the 3" suspension with a 3" body to fit the 35's..... i am leaning more towards the 3 and 3 but im wanting some other opinions/advise.
ill throw the prices out there just so you guys know...
6" full suspension = 900$
3" suspension and 3" body together = 680$

ive got about 1-2 weeks before his new wheels come in so ive got time...

anyone with a similar setup feel free to post pics
and advise and opinions are much appreciated!!!
thanks guys

I prefer all suspension even though it's a little pricey. I don't like the look of body lifts even if you do have gap guards. In the end it's all up to your personal opinion and what you truly want on YOUR truck.

spend the extra and go full suspension body lifts are shitty and everything is going to hang lower on your truck and look ugly. Check out your classifieds i got my 7 inch cst lift for like 300 bucks
