you'll need at LEAST a 6" to clear 37's. with only a 10" wide wheel you'll really need to only run a 6" lift, an 8" for tire clearance on angles and such ( turning into an angled driveway and such with 6 and 37's will rub ).

Agreed. An 8" lift would be better, but even with a 8" Rize I can sometimes rub my 37's on the fender liner when the suspension compresses and I'm turning (wheels are 22x12.25)

depending on what suspension he's working with it's a little different....the leaf sprung trucks sit a little higher from the factory so an 8" lift ( as wierd as this sounds ) will actually sit a little higher than a coil sprung truck with an 8" lift.....wierd I know but it's true.

EDIT: I just saw he had an 06, if you want no rubbing what so ever I would go a little more than 8" and beef up your trans, delete the EGR, head studs, get some tunes, injectors, trans, gears ( 4.56's ) and you'll be pretty damn near back in business and you'll have alot more to brag about and back it up.

Not to mention if you EVER really use your truck off the actual road (See off the road) in the websters dictionary. :pointlaugh:

OH NOOOOOO!!!!LOL , I am really a newbie. there are a couple of great shops in jacksonville, american bedliners and FCDP. i have been trying to get up with FCDP but they are pretty busy so AB will handle the lift. Naw, I told one of my lighter brothers," the difference will be that i have armor-all on my tires instead of mud":pointlaugh:

I have 22x11 with 37's on a 7" ICON and have zero rubbing issues. I don't offroad my truck so can't say it wouldn't rub when at full turn and flexed.
