Hey man, I want to go with the best level kit ..either AS or HellBent w/ AAL and then new wheels and tires ...trying to figure out 18"s or 20"s / 33"s or 35"s and which tires ...seems like that is a very popular subject in these posts

2.5 auto spring with an AAL is the most popular. your going to need the add a leaf due to the fact your truck has less factory rake then the 04-05 trucks. as far as wheel size thats up to you. but you cannot fit 35s on aftermarket wheels unless they are almost exactly the same specs (width, backspace, offset) as your factory rims. youd be best off doing a 33x12.5 tires. as far as tires and rims search the forums and find out what type you want. just remember to post any tire/wheel/suspension questions in the appropriate forums.

Here's a hint: Pay it off first, lol. I can barely afford to take my girl out to lunch with gas prices and my truck has been paid off for the last 8 years.

vB Code can't be used in thread titles. I've edited it out for you... Also, I've un-bolded your entire post.

Fine print says each auction comes with two. Right under the pictures of the decal is says the Size and then "(Sold as a set) You get one for each side with this auction." So you might just want to buy one set unless you have another truck.
