Default lift and tires

Right now i have a 3 inch body lift and 35x12.50 Nitto mud grapplers. When the tread on these tires are gone i am wanting to get a 6 inch suspension lift. What would be a good size tire to run on a 2002 supercrew with a 3 inch body lift and a 6 inch suspension lift? Also what would be the best brand lift to get? If any of yall have trucks with this setup, please post pics! Thanks

37x13.5
38x13.5
38x14.5

Or a wide 36" tire. Pitbull makes a few.

You will want to regear to 4.88 for tires that big. The 4r70w will be on borrowed time with stock gears and anything bigger than 35's

37- a stuuuffeeddd 39.
37 is probably your best bet. 13.5 wide looks best.

Ive seen 35's with a 3" body, 6" suspension lift before. Actually doesn't look THAT bad. Its on a 98 Chev. Ya unless you want to re-gear, id stay with 35's.


HA! HA! I'm a supporting member and you're not!

EXAMPLE I HAVE A 96 150 302 4R70W
I have 3.55 gearing stock at 70 mph im turning 1800 rpm and when i hit a small hill on the highway it keeps downshifting and up shifting ..
im going to be installing 33 And am going to install 4.56 gears which will stop the trans from doing the hunt on the highway and should work IF i decide to move on up to 35s ..

I fit 40s with the same amount of lift with a bit of cutting. wouldnt recommend it though, too hard on front end components. If your planing on doing any offroading with it I wouldnt go any bigger than 36s or 37 max.
