Curious to see how they fit with the 3.5 inch. He’s only got them on a few 2in LT kits that I’ve seen. I went with 6in fronts and he’s custom making me a rear 4in set to match the 6inch front trim.

I was about 5k short from doing this same setup man. Looks killer ??

I do want to ask where you relocated your back up camera? Or did you just take it off all together?

ya haven't really seen a lot of people run the 3.5 kit at all on the 3rd gens. nice i wanted to go with the 6inch front but seems way too wide

Looking forward to seeing it with the fenders. Wonder if they will “tuck” or rip off the fender. That’s the only reason I went 6in bulge. 3.5 long travel, 14 inches of travel and 35s May cause some issues.

Do you plan on running 35s? Are those 33s? Can’t tell from the pics. Carlos4x4

Well my stock fenders are falling apart as we speak lol
These are “33”s not really they are more like 32.5 but yes I want to run 35s in the near future so might have to just go to 6inch flares up front eventually

So my front fenders are on. My 35 bfgs (really 34.5) just came in. If the shop got them mounted I’ll see how much clearance I have and snap a few pics. Should have a better look this Saturday when I go check out my truck. If any luck we’ll be able to cycle the suspension and see how much clearance we have.

I didn’t think I needed long travel either until I bought it ?
But ya I love it. I like hitting trails but I love going fast and hitting jumps more
Really depends what you like
