I don't have any pictures, but I think you need more tire with 9" of lift. There are guys on here running 35s with only a 3" bl, and I love the way it looks.

Different people like different looks. I love how 35s look on a 6+3. Especially wide 35s on wide rims.

No current pics of my setup though.

Believe me I would love to run a bigger tire than a 35" BF mud but the money situation is not there to buy bigger tires. I have had my 35 for a little over a year about 5600 mile on them. I really want to go bigger but I cant because Im running a 17x9 Pro-Comp rim. Not many 37's come in a 17 inch rim. So Im looking to trade wheels if anyone is interested.

9'' lift with only 35's is a tad much lift IMO but if its all you can afford so be it. I personally like the way 37's look with 6.5'' lifts but maybe its just me.

35s on a 6+3 doesn't mean thats all you can afford. Whats up with that comment?
That'd be like me saying "20s look better on lifted trucks, but if 15s is all you can afford, so be it". That doesn't make sence at all. I love all styles!

Its all about what style you like, big rim/less sidewall, stuffed or un-stuffed.

Its made by Tough Country.. it is their full front replacement bumper... Is is their "Apache" series bumper.. you can change up the options too... i got mine from 4wheelonline.com for right around 1k shipped...

Oh and that black OBS on 37" boggers looks so awesome! I love that truck!

He said he couldnt afford 37's, so he was going to use his 35's till then.
I just think 37's look much better.

If i put a 3'' body on my truck i think the tires im running now would look too small and have to much gap in the wheel wells which i think looks like crap.

Yes they are NFabs. They are the best looking steps I've ever seen by far. But be prepared to wait. It took me over 2 months to get them when it was only supposed to take a week.

As to the comment about not being able to afford nothing but 35s, I used to have some 36s but I swapped to these 35s to be more practical for how much I drive while I'm in school but will swap to 37s when I'm through.

All depends on the lift too and how you have it set up.
I will also be running 35's in the summer time. I just doesnt seem right to me having 9'' of lift and 35's. your truck looks good by the way, one thing i noticed pro comp lifts dont get the truck up there like some other lifts. That may be why.
