Anybody have pics of a 4" spidle lift without the 2.5" spacers. I have searched and all of the ones I find are members that have the 2.5" spacers and the spindles. I dont want to lift mine 6.5" and want to see what our trucks look like with a 4" spidle and 2" blocks for the rear. Thanks

here's my 04' with the spindle lift and a 1" block in the rear. The tires are just a little bigger than stock.

Well...it's only 4"...

However, to me that looks about right.

I'm sure someone with some bigger tires will show the difference better.

Thanks for the pics guys. Now I have to order them. Does anybody know if a 325 60 18 Nitto TG will fit on the stock 18's and not rub the spindle? I know it will work with the stock spindles but the cst spindles are shaped a little different.

those will fit fine, I hear you'll have problems rubbing if you use the Mudgrapplers. I've got 33" bfg at/kos on the green truck.
Megs truck has 35's!:bangit:

Yeah the gap in the fender will look about the same because you have 2.5" of lift with 32s, I have 4" of lift with 35s.

No the spindles aren't gonna make your truck look huge, but it's just the right amount of lift for me to clear 35s yet still be practical to get in and out of every day. I've driven a truck with 13" of lift on 46s everyday, and after awhile it gets old. So that's why I chose to get the spindles only.

I don't think anything bigger than 35s will fit with just the spindles, unless you do some major trimming.

I would say any 35x12.50s will work, except Mud Grapplers, just make sure you check the actual width on the manufacturers website because some 12.50s are 12" wide and some are 13" wide. When I put my 35x12.50 Cooper STTs on with stock rims, they barely cleared the spindle so make sure the tires you get are 12.50" or skinnier or they'll prob rub the spindle. I'm not sure why you would have any trouble finding 35x12.50s that's a very common size. As for which actual tire to choose, I could recommend a few choices if you post what you'll be using them for. (offroad:sand/mud, towing, all highway driving, etc.)

Yeah I'm gonna recommend the Nitto Terra grapplers which are great on the highway, they will last a good 40k miles, and they're good in dirt and sand as well as being priced pretty good. Also, you may want to check out the BFG ATs which are good in sand, good on the highway, and will last 45k+ miles, but they're pretty pricey and everyone has them.

Here's my 4" spindle lift with 325/60R18 grapplers. A little bit of rubbing on full lock. Need to do the pinch weld mod or maybe lifting it a little more will solve the problem.
Nice lookin ride! I like the 33s better than 35s with the just the spindles.
