I'd like to see pictures of NBS half tons running a 3" body lift, 2" suspension lift (crank or keys with block or AAL) and 35x13.50 tires.

I'm thinking of running this setup on my 2000 Z71 with 325/65R18 Cooper STT and KMC KD Spy wheels. Not sure if I should go with 18x9 with 4.53" backspacing or 18x8.5 with 5.46" backspacing.

Please give your wheel specifications - diameter, width, and backspacing. I'd like to hear any thoughts and experiences you have with this setup. Thanks!

go ahead n get a 6" it'll be cheaper in the long run.. add up blocks, keys, bodylift, gap guards, getting exhaust raised, you won't be far from a 6" kit, you'll want more eventually...
as far as pics go here's a couple
body lift tb crank 4" block 35 12.50 20 on 20x9

body lift keys 3" blocks 315 75 16 on 16x8

:word: its not far from the RCX 6" once you add it all up, plus it looks a lot better with no frame showing

Here is my truck. 3" body, Ford Keys, 3" blocks, 18x9 with 5.75 BS and 325/65/18 (35x13.5x18)Terra Grapplers. And if you find deals like I did you wont spend much lifting your truck. I found a body lift on ebay for $125 and bought the rear blocks for $40 and bought for keys for $120. Far from $1k for a suspension lift although I would love to have one.

CleanZ, how is the ride out back with the 3'' block? Also is there a color code for thr ford keys or is there just one key?
block won't change anything, will ride like stock, tires and shocks change the ride in the rear

ford keys are all one color, rusty, 97-03 f-150 keys is what you need
