I have a 2000, 2500 Ex-Cab Long bed 4WD 6.0L. I want atleast a 6" lift, but i would like 9", then im thinking probably some 38s? i dunno. i just got this truck 2 days ago and dont really know much about trucks but i do know i want it to be bigger.

You can either do a big suspension kit for big money, or a 6 inch suspension kit, and a 3 inch bodylift and it will probably cover those 38's okay

Go with a 6" pro-comp,3" PA bodylift and ford keys and you will be able to fit 38/15.50's.I have the same truck as you and i have 37/12.50's right know and they are kinda small.

I recently test fitted some 38/15.50 super swamper ssr's and they cleared easily,so that is what i will be getting nest.

BTW: to fit these i also have a 5.5" superlift block in the rear and add-a-leafs. :D :D

I have 2001 2500HD 6.0l with a 6" RCD lift 3" BL and new keys to crank it up to 11" of lift. In the back i took out the block and put in 8" deaver leaf springs. Im running 38' PJ's and had to do some minor trimming.

If yoru going to do it, you will be much happier if you get like a 9.5" full throttle than a suspension+body. Its not that much more (few hundred bucks) and will work out alot better for you.

with the amount you are planning to spend, the jump to full throttle is going to be a SMALL one. do it no questions.

Full throttle is a brand of lifted suspension. He was saying its better to go with a 9.5" suspension lift (Full throttle lift) than to get a 6" lift with a 3" body lift. Basucally hes ragging on my setup :flame:
