well here is the issue i have ran into. i ordered the 4" pure performance lift for my truck. my tires (325/65/18) are actually a little taller than i thought they would be. i havent installed anything on my truck yet, mainly because i have been out of town since it has arrived. i think i am going to have some clearance issues especially because my wheels have 4.5" backspacing. should i order the zone 1.5" bl and put on it or see if jon will let me send this back and order the 5" rcx or procomp lift or something. what do you think would be the best to do. i realize i kind of screwed myself on this one.

It'd be worth the phone call back to Jon and see if he will replace the lift. If it's not opened yet I don't think there would be too big of an issue besides having to restock it if they have room. Or just order the 1.5 lift and go big.

Body lift....

Although, Jon is a really good guy. I'm sure he can make something work out if you opt out of the body lift idea.

If I can fit 33's leveled, why couldn't you fit 35's with a 4" kit? :think:

What about CowgirlKyle running 35's on his STOCK 1500 SCSB Ram. Given the wheel wells are different...that's still a 4" lift.

I think you'll be alright with 35's and a 4" kit :imo

I don't rub on 33's after very minimal trimming.

if it was me i would see if jon would let u return the 4" and get a 6". i think you would have issues fitting that 35x13.50 on a 4.5 BS wheel on a 4" and would be a close call even with the 1.5" bl on top of the 4". plus once you do both of those and your having issues fitting them your in more of a bind into trimming to make them fit, as with a 6" u can always do a spacer or a bl on top to get alittle extra room.

:hmm: I am worried about clearance on 35s and I have a 1.5" Zone and the Rancho lift on mine and I am running 5" of BS. When I get my 35s on this weekend I will have a fresh sawsall blade ready to go. :hack:

I would see if you can get the 6" kit and a 1.5" Zone. :imo

well Jon said he would talk to the manufacturer about taking it back, if so i will order the bigger lift and hopefully get it all done within 3-4 weeks.
