5" lift with 3" body lift and 35" tires

I think mine looks too tall for it's tires, especially from the back. It'd look better with 37s or 38s, or maybe just with tires that don't stick out so far (my rims are 15x10 with 3.75 BS). Problem is, I can make the 36s rub in the front without much effort.

What do you want, looks or functionality? You don't have room to flex your current tires but you think you need bigger ones? Can't have it both ways...either you have room for flex and a lot of space between the tire and fenderwell, or else you stuff a tire and don't have room to flex.

If I had less backspacing I could get away with a bigger tire and not have it rub. Like a 38x12.50 (my 36s are 13.50s). But since I haven't wheeled the truck in over a year, right now I don't really care.

Thats a nice truck I have a standrd cab offroad would you get rid of the coils and just buy a complete 5" kit and dont worry about the less 1" and just say I have 8" with 35s.

If you dont mind me asking with 8" lift with 35-36s what does your bumpers/frame messures from the ground to the bottom of them becuz Virgina sucks thanks jimmy.

With the 8" lift and 36's, the bottom of my rear bumber is 29.5" from the ground.

But when I installed the rear bumper lift brackets I used the 2" location instead of the 3". So my bumper is 1" lower than it should be.

The rear bumper max height is 30" here in NH. I don't want to give the fuzz any reason to ticket me.

I also had my welder take two inches out of my factory receiver hitch so it tucks up nicely. But I did that after I took the pics.

from what i know of the virginia laws it goes by your gross vehicle weight...a 1500's bumper can be 34 inches from the bottom of the front bumper, to the ground...and 35inches from the bottom of the rear bumper to the ground. the tires cant stick out more than 6 inches past the fenderwells. at least thats what the 2 police officers i know told me.

Virgina laws are 0-4500 28 front 29 back 4501-7500 is 29 front 30 Back 7501-15000 30 front 31 Back. My back bumber messures 27-28 with just a 3" and 35s and my front messures 22-23 with a 3" body. I might have to go messure again to see if iam right.. Ive heard on the tire thing is nomore than 4" past the fender.

Oh your going by what they told you...
