Getting a quality 6-inch lift, the 37-inch tires will fit in.

I've seen a Black 2004 F-150 model last weekend with an 8" lift and 38"tires on it... It really looks sweet... Love it!

6" should be plenty for a pavement pounder....


However you said you want to go wheeling, so I assume you want room for flex.....



I'd go with 8"


Cheap way would be 6" suspension and 3" body....

I'm not a big fan of body lifts, but they have their purpose...


You also may want to upgrade to 3/4 ton axles, or atleast put 4.10s in your stock..... 38" inches is a lot of rubber to turn....
