Aren't you able to fit 35s with a leveling kit? 35s shouldnt be a problem with a 4 in lift I dont think so

Mines on a 6" bds suspension lift with a 1 and 3/4" leveling kit on 34" bfg all terrains with 22's. Agreed I don't think you'll fit 35" tires on a 4" but I have an 11" wide tire.

You can fit 35s with a 4" lift with no problems. I ran a 35.5" tire with just a 2" level for several months with no problems. Depending on the tire width and wheel specs, you may or may not need to run a spacer. To me 35s look a little small on a 6" lift...

are high angle CV's pretty much required for 4+ inches of lift on this chassis?

since i only have 3.55s im thinking of a milder lift with 32-33s tops on 17s.

I like articulation so I was hoping to do it without any spacers.

Off topic but can you post a pic of your truck with 22's and 35's I am looking at going that route but I want to see what it looks like.

You can run a 35" tire on a 4" lift no problem. Only thing you'll have to watch for is the BS on the wheels that you want to put on.
