I ordered my lift kit from Nick last week. 7-9" Cognito, Sulastic Shackles, Airbags, Tie Rods, UCA, Driveline kit.

I ordered 37" Hankook MT on 17x7 Ultra Goliaths. The rims/tires are in, just waiting for the lift.

Here is a pic of the tire/rim.
Just a little bigger than stock.

Thanks guys.

I ordered the wheels from a local tire shop, just a small outfit here in Okotoks (Alberta, Canada), Rim to Rim.

coles220, have you had any issue with the cops on not having fenders covering all your tires when you are running the mudders?

ICULKN, I have 3.5" blocks for the rear. The airbags are to level the truck when I am loaded:
Normal Camping for us; On the truck:

-Grizzly 660
-2 Kids quad (90, 50)
-2 dirtbikes (110, 80)
-250 litres diesel (tank in back of truck)
-250 litres of water (tank in back of truck)

Towing 32ft trailer tongue weight 1500lbs
This all comes out to about 4500 lbs once we are piled in the truck (yes, I have 4 kids). So stock the truck actually sits level when loaded. Nor-cal suggested 7" front and 3.5" rear to level the truck when unloaded, then airbags to level it when loaded. The sulastic should take the chop out of the ride when unloaded as I also use the truck for commuting.

Coles220, thats perfect since I also have 2" spacer and my tires are 1" narrower I should not have a problem.

I am going to install it all myself. The bad part is I have to do this on my driveway as I won't be able to get the truck out of the garage once the lift is on :D
