What brand of lift is that? And I notice you went bigger, I don't suppose the old 6" is available?

Yes you are correct it does have a slightly bigger stance than factory.

I know a few members on here in the last have rocked a leveling kit and they were able to for 35s, and the truck I'M thinking of was just a slt, so you'll be fine. they did have minimal rub at full lock, but nothing to serious.

before I got rid of my ram, I did manage to fit 37s under my truck. I had less than half an inch of clearance against the bottom of the fender. keep in mind that I had a 5 inch lift on mine, a bds. I loved that lift, highly recommended it if you can spring for it.

Thanks for your response, I would love to add a lift but I pull my 5th wheel camper with it and it already puts a little more pressure on the back two tires of the camper. I did measure when I hooked up the camper it only squated the truck about. 1/4". I like the way it looks when the fender is full of tire. Now time to find a good set of tires any recommendations? The bad part is the truck only get driven maybe 4 times a month lol hate to pit a $1000 set of tires for them to dry rot before they wear out lol.
