    Hi guys I'm new just picked up a 15 sr5 4x4 Crewmax and looking to go 7" BDS coil over kit and running 37/12.5/20 toyo RT tires with fuel 20x9 + 20 offset. My question is pro and con about going that high, I notice a lot of guys on the forum doing 4" lifts why not bigger? With that in mind BDS says I can go 37 on tires, will it rub ? I'm looking for more of an aggressive stance when I pull up to the light I don't want to be looking up at another guys truck that's why I kinda want to go bigger on the lift.

    I won't go any higher than 3.5"-4" personally. Why? I want to be able to fit into my garage, and some parking structures if needed.

    Anything at 6"+ you will be cutting the frame, which will void the frame warranty.

    Most guys at 6" + run 35-38" tires on 20" wheels.

    I like the look of the 7" BDS lift, and at the end of the day you have to do what you think looks the greatest.

    That is a 12" lift with 40s I believe. @Sean266 is that what you remember?
