August 4, 2011Hey guys hows it goin? I am curently deployed over in Afganistan and am wanting to put a lift on my truck when I get home. I have a 2004 Silverado Z71 and am thinking about the 6" Rough Country lift. I am going to put 35" tires on as well but am still up in the air on if I want to install a 3" body lift as well. I want my truck to be tall but not so tall it looks weird on 35`s. What do yall think?

August 4, 2011I`d almost say you will need some bigger tires if you put the 6" and the 3" on there. if you stuck on 35s, stick with the 6" but if you really want the 6" and the 3" maybe think of some 38s or 40s. I don`t know off hand what would fit, but I would say i personally would stick to a 6" lift and 35s, or 37s if they`ll fit. lol.
And thanks for serving and doing your part to protect our freedom!
Horsepower is how fast you were going when you hit the wall, Torque is how far you went after you hit the wall.
August 4, 2011I would go with the Rough Country 6inch NTD kit and 35s, then think about re-gearing it. Gearing is a big debate, some say its necessary some say it isn`t. If you have the money, do it, in the long run (70-100k from now) it`ll save your tranny.
Body lifts are easy to install (meaning you can`t really mess anything up,) if you want one after you have put the 6inch on it you can its no big deal. But 9inches of lift is an awefull lot of lift for a half ton pick-up.
August 6, 201198slv, your right. Body lifts dont look all that hard to install and
I can always do it later down the road. I agree with Lokie, with the 6" and 3" 35`s would look awfuly small. I was just so up in the air because a lot of the pictures I have seen its sometimes hard to tell if they have a body lift or not. There is this one guys truck on Rough Country`s web site that looks similar to mine and it says its just a 6" lift with 35`s but looks a little tall. Guess it could be the angle of the camera or I underestimated how tall a 6" is. Thanks for the input guys.
