Default New set up, 2.5 leveling kit on 35's on a 2wd 06 pics inside

sup guys, just purchased some federal couragias m/t 35x12.5 on my stock 20's, all i have is a 2.5 leveling kit, 1/4"spacer in the front but i think it would've fit without a spacer, just being on the safe side. so for all you guys that are curious if 35's will fit with just a leveling kit, it works with very little rubbing, only on full locked turn all comments welcome
before


on 275/60/20 cooper tires no running board and painted rims semi gloss


2.5 leveling kit installed on 35's

That looks awesome!! 4x4 height without the 4x4 price. Lovin those rims too... I thought about painting mine, but I don't think the "flower petal" looking 20's would look good painted black...

Looks good. Do you notice much difference in ride height? I'm looking to go with some BFG 33"s on 18" DC-1 wheels with 2-1/2 leveling kit... just not sure what to expect in ride height... whether I'll gain much or sit close to the same? Forgot to mention, my truck is 4wd if that makes a difference...?

Looks good. I'm wondering the same thing as 4x4Wannabe.

Also, anybody know if I'm correct in assuming that the front end suspension on the 2006 models is the same as a 2008?

It changes the speedo a little bit. It doesn't really kill gas mileage, but it also depends on your gearing. I would feel safe running 35s with 3.92, but if you have 3.55 or lower you would lose some power.
