First of all, you wont clear 37s. They will rub like hell. Also it all depends on what kind of tire for how long they will last. The PA bodylift kit comes with everything.

I really dont think theres that big of diff between how a 36" and 37" tire looks and it would def help with the rubbing issue.

Stick w/ 35s. You'll get much better mileage and it looks better on a 2wd truck, w/ the CST you may not need a body lift for 35s. Here's what I'm talking about.

Well I have the CST 7" kit and 3" Body on its way for my 2wd. Got a set of 36-12.50-16 TSL Radials still dont have my rims but they will be 16x10's with 4.5" BS and im sure I am pushing the limits. If you are not going to do this right away, wait for a couple of weeks till i install mine and I can answer for sure if you will clear them or not.

BTW I think [email protected] has best prices on cst. I got the cst and body lift from him and was happy with the price he had. Shoot him and e-mail or call him.

If you want to run 37's that last a long time just get BFG Allterrains. They run small...more like 36.4 unmounted. So i bet they would fit.

I am sure you can run 36s with 10" of lift on a 2wd. I ran a 36.2" tire with 9" of lift and glass fenders and little to no trimming and never once rubbed, not even while offroading. With 10" of lift and some trimming you'll be fine if its not gonna see the dirt and even offroading it wount be that bad. Go for the 37's, if it rubs, you can trim, you'll want to go bigger anyway. Everybody and their brother has a 6" lift on 35's, be different and go with the 36's or 37's.

I got a &" Fabtech on my 99' Silverado and I run 35's no problem. When I wear the 35's out I will put a 3" BL and run 37's no problem too. Think about it, 7 inches with 35's , 3 more inches...only 2 more inches of tire. They will fit. I did have to take my air dam off and do some minor trimming. I actually ended up geting a custom bumper fabricated to look good and clear better. :crazy:

By the way, the only thing you really have to worry about is how wide they are. I went with an 8" wide rim, they said if I go wider I would rub the inner fenders and theres really no way to fix that.
