Test fit the 35s

They clear the rear fine but the front is turned as far as it can go...

i ordered a drop hanger to move the axle forward as well as shackles for both front and rear

I recommend the skyjacker softride leafs they have always done right by me and make for a smooth road ride as well.

I have been debating on either the skyjacker or pro comp 3" kits just to get the truck up an save the money to do links next with coil overs

But my plan so far is to just move the axle forward to make the tuck mobile and probably rears up front and something in the rear since I have multiple stock rear leaf packs... I just need a ifs steering box so I can do crossover steering.
