    I'm thinking if doing a 4-6in lift with either rough country or ready lift . Are these good brands to use or should I go with something . What products has everyone else used and how much do they run ? Any input would be helpful thanks .

    I've read some good things about 'Ready Lift' but I ultimately decided to stick with a 3" OME lift as it's known for its durability.

    Rough country offers a 4.5" and a 6" lift. They are drop bracket lifts with new cross members, spindles and blocks for your stock front shocks/coils. These lifts will be stiff without a replacement of the front shocks/coils with new extended length coil-overs.

    Readylift offers a 4" using new upper control arms and blocks for your stock front shocks/coils. This lift will also be stiff without a replacement of the front shocks/coils with new extended length coil-overs.

    What size of lift do I need to fit 35's
    Can I get away with doing leveling kit for that

    Depends on your offset, if you want stance 35s will rub more than likely on a 2.5 or 3. If you dont want stance you can definitely squeeze 35s on a 3.

    With my RW wheels I fit 315/70R17 (~35x12.5) Duratracs without rubbing on a 3" lift.

    I have the 20 in that came with Texas edition package. And I would be putting Nitto trail grappler 35 x 12.5. I'm getting a smoking deal on tires but don't wanna rub

    I removed the front mud flaps. Thats it. No cutting. No rubbing anywhere. @Sean266 has ~36" tires on and he removed mud flaps and did a little plastic trimming. He has aftermarket wheels with greater offset though.


    The stock wheels will be 10mm closer to the upper control arm and spindle than my rock warrior wheels so it will be tighter. I cant say that it will for sure fit or not.

    10mm = .3937". I think I have about that much of a gap left but that will be very tight. I suggest doing some more searching around the Internet to see if others made them fit. Report back here on what you find out.

    On a 305 70 18 tire would aftermarket rims with a +18 be good or should I go less? Trying to decide between 295 70 and 305 70

    My opinion would be to spending the extra few bucks and get a reputable and quality 4-6" lift from Fabtech. You can fit 35's with both of the those setups but not sure on the backspacing on the Texas Edition wheels if they work.

    If you are willing to do something smaller like a 3 inch, you have a few options. Full replacement coilover, upper arm, and an add-a-pack/block in the rear will give you 3" all the way around with a level look.

    I think Fabtech requires no more than 5" back space. I think that means stock wheels would require nearly a 2" spacer....just as an example. I may be wrong but someone here will know for sure. Stock wheels being +60 for this example.
