hello im new to this forum and I drive a 05 chevy 1500 crew cab with rough country level kit with 285/65/r18 trail grapplers on helo rims and after 3 months I finally have enough money to buy a lift kit. so I really want a 6 inch lift but im worried that my tires will look dumb. does anyone have a 6 inch lift with 33's? thanks!

If you decranked all the way you'll have a rake but it'll ride 1000000x better... I have a 6" ntd, 3" body lift on 35-70-17 but they measure to 34 and I think the ratio is perfect

If you don't want the rake just do a 4" ntd kit and get a 3" body lift later if you want more height otherwise your ride sucks with a cranked kit

just set the keys level with the back. it will look fine and wont ride much worse than stock. my keys are only about an inch over stock, and it still rides pretty good

I don't think 33s would look too small with the right tire and wheel.

Here is my truck with a 6" NTD and 285/65r18 BFGs

But I went to 18x10s and a 325/60R18 and I think the wider wheels and tires make it look better.

do a wider wheel too. atleast a x10 with -24 offset or so. x12 and 33's with a 6 inch lift looks really good. thats what i would run if i had a truck that was worth putting the money/lift into
