the only reason i would go with 35s would be if i couldnt afford 37s but truck fest is tomorrow so hopefully ill come across a good deal

I've got 4.5" of lift with 37s and love the look. You can tell the truck is lifted and the 37s really fill up the wheel wells. The only rubbing i have is on the leaf springs which from my understanding everyone with 37s on the 99-04s does unless you go with a lot of negative offset to where they stick way out. Heres some pics of mine. If you're interested in where i got my lift shoot me a PM. Good luck

You have to be careful with what you call a 37 as some manufactuers specs state actuall tire size is 36".....I have a 8" lift with interco 37's and 4.5" backspacing on wheels and still rub at 3/4 turn. SO how you can run 37 on 4.5" of lift and not rub is beyond me...

I've measured, they're 37" tires. The only rubbing i have is the leaf springs. What i was saying is that most with 99-04s will have rubbing on the leaf springs with 37"+ tires whether you have 4.5, 6, or 8 inches of lift unless you have a lot of negative offset on the wheels.

I do it everyday, for 150k... No issues. Rubs on the spring at full lock but thats it.

WasGas, very nice X, perfect height & tire combo IMO. If I decide to exile mine from the garage it will go up another 2" and one more tire size to what you have. You in AZ?
