Default 2.5 inch leveling kit with 35' tires?

If i get a 2.5 inch leveling kit and have 35's on my truck is it going to look like it has a 5 inch lift? Are the tires going to fill out the wheel wells good enough so the truck looks aggresive? what do you think?...

O just a guess here, but yes, tires will fill wheel wells out. Mudders fill them right up...mine would rub when I got close to full crank with stock wheels on.

Yes sir, he had a 6" Pro-Comp lift with 35's, he had Pro-Comps,then Cats used Terra Grapplers, then he bought a set of nice Nitto Trail Grapplers. He always complained about how his ass end sat lower than some other lift kits. Esp when he was parked next to Samantha who also has a 6" suspension lift without the saggy rear haha. He added a block or a leaf to get it to sit level. What else you wanna know ? haha

33s' wont rob your fuel mileage as bad and you'll have more oomph. Wont look as if it has a 5" lift...just leveled, which I prefer.

dont go higher than 2 1/2 " on the 'level kit' any higher puts way to much strain on the ball joints
and make sure you get an alignment

and that "trimming out" mentioned above, its done to the plastic air damn / lower valance from the inside
the tires tend to rub at full turn
just a little plastic needs to be removed, and no one will ever notice
