my lift is in now its time for rims tires /and maybe ladder bars

i still need to go up 1 1/2 in the back. i got the 4 inch kit from zone. when we put the lift in i also did a 1 1/2 leveling block in the front because i wanted the truck level. little did i know all you get with a 4 in zone kit is a block thats 1 1/2 inches bigger then the stock block. (on my truck any way). do they sell a 6 1/2 inch block any where. and what is out there for ladder bars? i was told they will help me keep the rear end from warping when i tow. i'm looking for some 20 inch rims and 35s what would you put on here if it where your truck?

here is a few pics

I would steer clear of a 20 my truck in the avatar had 35s on 20s and my local tire stores want 380 or better for a decent tire go 18s or smaller. plus it looks better. less to wash and if the girl drives theres no way she can curb the rims.

Re: my lift is in now its time for rims tires /and maybe ladder bars

I would be happy with one more inch in the back Would an add a leaf work for me? I think i should still look into some type of ladder bar also tho

PMF traction can be ordered with anysize block Fabricated Unitized Floating Traction Block - Precision Metal Fab

this would kill 2 birds with one stone

I wouldn't add springs.
I personally run airbags for that 1 inch lift then I also have an additional means to level a heavy load

I would do the PMF's otherwise you can get a regular 6.5" PMF block and ubolts for a little over 200 bucks and his are beefy as hell....as for wheels and tires, you can look into whatever size you want as long as it's 17" OR LARGER, I personally love big wheels...never used to until I got 24's lol. it's all in your best preference.

Another vote for PMF traction blocks! Also, I have some 20x10 Diamo wheels that I am trying to sell that would look great on there. Here is a link to what they look like: PowerStrokeNation - View Single Post - 20x10 Diamo Wheels w/ 305/50/20 Toyo Proxes

I know your not interested in the tires, so I would dismount them... PM if your interested.

i wouldnt run a 6.5" block unless it is that traction block. i would get 4" block max and make up the rest with air bags and def ladder or traction bars
