Well I couldn't figure out why there's such a difference between keaks truck with fabtech and mine with rough country. So I downloaded fabtech install instructions and found that I had by accident reversed the top spacer and so it wasn't really where it should of been in ride height lol. Testing out different ways and settings found that in fact a 3inch suspension and a 1.5 body lift really has nothing in this set up. First heres why when its set up correctly it measures 20.5 inches of ground clearance for the front lowest spot on my drop brackets with 33's wow right! So how this was done to get that messurement was rc 6 inch lift with Bilsteins 5100 set to lowest setting with ome885x medium coils. Now I would not recommend any one do this by the way it'll max out tie rods uacs and lcas. However I had some extra time on my hands so I went through a couple of different setups just to see what was possible. In the end I when bk to the rough country setup but with fabtech upper spacer it gave me 2 to 2.5 less but left every thing at a safe level. Front measures now 42.75 left front and right at 43.5 inches rears are at 45.10 with added 1.5 Inch daystar to get alittle factory rack back. I gotta say the f250 trip out when they see a 4th generation so high we're looking eye to eye at a stop light.

So the lift from the springs was to much and shoved your suspension way down?
I'm going to be running Tacoma springs in the front with the Bilsteins set at 0". That gives me 1/2"-1" of lift. I would think that would be OK with the RCX 6", plus it's a a heavier coil to control body lean in corners.

I'd go with 4.88 gears. With 37s you'd still be a little lower ratio than stock.

You're 2WD correct? 37's I'd agree with 5.29. I have 35's and 4.56. Wish I had 4.88.

Tires 37" x 20 tho? With a rear locker? I'd go no more than 18's if your going to be offroading. You want more tire otherwise you're going to risk damage to your rims as you push the 2WD limitations offroad with 2WD and a locker. Just my 2 cents but not hating!

Are you on the 4 spd or 5 spd tranny with the 4.56? Deciding whether to go to 4.56 or 4.88 with the 4 spd and 315s.

Your correct 2wd so thats why 5.29 v6 w 3.91 rear end or 3.93 4 speed transmission thank god it only cost me like 500.00 for a 62k mileage one lkq yea ha 750e or f jumps up alot. Ill probably be switching to keaks recommendation of 17 so as you mentioned above ill have lots more rubber with the 20's rides very stiff hands like it did stock with more of a rice rocket than a truck no bad but not what I want. I like a softer ride but America's tire dude thought it'd be cool looking didn't know I really wanted to go off roading lol. Again thanks for all of your comments keep em` comming thanks it whats this site so great.
