Im looking at a 04 GMC Crew 1500 4x4. How can I get 35's under it? I know about the tbars and all that. If I did get I dont wanna put a 6" lift on it too much. Any thoughts?

Yep, run green keys with cranked bars, take the rear 2" block out in favor of a 4", and install a 3" body lift. Then you might need some minor trimming on the front valence, but it'll work. If you don't want a suspension lift, this is the cheap/easy route.

1500 has to be lifted min. 6"... cranking bars MIGHT get you 33's... MUST use 17" wheels, 16" rubs on brake caliper

I'm gunna agree with onetall96. You can put them on with a 3" body, blocks and a crank. It might rub a bit, but will work. I would stick with a 8" wide rim, I have seen it done on 10" wide, but it rubs to much to be worth it.

you will be able to fit 315's, but the valance may require trimming, but the will fit, trust me

I have an '02 1500HD and I am running 35x13.50's on a set of 20x9 with 5" of backspacing. I put the Rancho 2-4" kit on it. PN-6550. It was a breeze to install and it rides great.

If you put keys or crank the bars up you will not like the ride. I tried it to clear a set of 315x70r17's and it was like riding in a log wagon. Yes it is cheaper, but like they always say..you get what you pay for.
