The Lift is finally complete. TGC 3.5" lift, it doesn't sound big till you put it on the 2500 which is already tall from the factory. Now getting in and out is tough..LOL, 20x10 Rockstar rims with 35"/12.50 Nitto trail grapplers.

Thanks, it is 4.5" I believe, I had some rubbing on the inner rear fender well which I ended up trimming easily.

When you do get it, make sure you get the 4:10 rear. I was worried about power and mileage and that wasn't even an issue. Power seems exactly the same and mileage wise I lost 1 mpg and sometimes only 3/4 mile (depending on highway use vs stop & go), not bad for the look achieved with a 35'' tire.

Thanks man, your truck will handle it with 3:73's, the only time you will really notice it is if your towing anything over 5K. These motors are powerful, at almost 400hp and 407 ft pounds of torque, its a breeze with these tire set ups.

ya I would deffinetly get the 4.10, my sisters bf is about to buy a brand new cummins as his everyday driver, so I will have about a year after he gets it to see how he likes it before I can afford to step into a new truck. once agin your set up looks awesome!

Ive got 3.92's in, and the difference in Ratios is so small that I thought about changing to 4.10's but its so small that I wouldnt notice the difference.

One question, when you changed tires, did your Low tire light come on? Ive heard that when you upgrade to bigger tires that it will effect the low tire sensor. You had any problems with that?

Oh, and nice SILVER paint. Im going to have to have my ENTIRE truck repainted.

I had the low tire come on mysteriuosly this weekend and when Monday rolled around I was on the road and it was still on, just as I was ready to pick up the phone and call the mechanic...it dropped off the radar. So far its still off. As far as 3:92's I'd leave it too, the cost is not worth it and you would hardly notice a difference.

Appreciate it bro, let me know if you run into problems with the sensor.

When you say that you had to "TRIM" some, does it look bad? Ive seen some trucks that have had to trim and it looks like they took a Sawzall to it and butchered it up real bad. Anyway that you can post some pics of your Trim?

I trimmed mine with a sawzall....neatly though, what you can do after trimming is to get a heat gun and smoothen the rough edges. Its hard to be neat with a sawzall at an angle with the tire on, but it can be done with patience. So far the sensor is still off, it was that one time and it was after a hit a large pothole.
