    Thanks for this ..


    The 6" stance is complemented really well with the Slee hooped fr. bumper IMHO.

    I think that 2.5 might be on smallish tires because mine doesn't look that big next to my dads which has the 2.5" lift....I have 315's and he has 305's

    I dunno....the hood difference appears to be around 3" which it should be about right. Ive been tossing around the idea of going to a 6". How do you like yours?

    Actually, the white truck is mine. In person Jamie's truck looked a little smallish next to it and the difference made for a good laugh today at the DC area swap meet.

    Those Cali guys have Surf N Turf. Here on the East Coast, when we have a warm, crystal clear autum day with the foliage at a vibrant peak, we go hang out in a parking lot.

    nice pics... 6" lift for a dd? i'd imagine that it would be doable as long as u could handle the really high center of gravity, and the aerodynamics of a brick. if u can get over that, then u should be good.

    35" TrXus would be the correct answer.
    Larry, it's kind of tough to answer your question. What's a good daily driver for one person could be completely unpractical for another. I live in a relatively small town and don't put much mileage on the truck. My previously daily driver was a much longer and wider F250, so I was used to a big vehicle. For someone living in a big city; dealing with parking garages and transitioning from a civic, the 6" lift could be a bit intimidating.
    That said, next month I'm starting a new job and this truck is going to be replaced with something smaller for DD use - probably an older Toyota truck if I can find one that isn’t rusted out.
