A mix of parts to make a custom 3" SL. Cut inches of plastic off so it does not rub. Stuffs and turns while stuffed just fine.

If you are doing that I assume you are going to SAS the truck and if that is the case forget the 3" lift as you will be changing all those parts anyway. Fitting 35's is not an issue but you have to SAS as the IFS tinkertoy front end we have wil not stand up to the weight/resistance of 35's.

If you are not going SAS mine with 33"s with 4.5 BS wheels, 2" BL, 3" Articulator SL from AC. Trimmed just a bit of plastic and sheet metal behind the front wheels.

Every truck is different, do the same lift to two different trucks and one may need no trimming while the other needs sheet metal trimmed. How much needs to be trimmed has a lot to do with the backspacing on the rim as well.
