Default wheel tire combo's??????????

I have a 1993 ext cab silverado 4x4. I have a chance to buy a 3'' body lift and a set of american racing wheels and 36'' tall tire's for 500.00, THE QUESTION IS.........is that enough lift or do i need more to run that size tire?Also i was at pik and pull and found some bush whacker flare's for 10 bux, whats the best stuff to hold the top of the flares to the body after it's screwed to the fender well's?

3 inches is probably not going to be enough. you can crank up the torsion bars a little to get some more height out of it. its the cheap way to lift but i would recommend doing a suspension lift.

36's on 3" body? No. I don't think that would be a good combination.

I would say a total of 6" lift overall yes. I would be careful though bolting 36's on stock diffs. Just my $.02. Assuming this is a C1500 those diffs probably won't live a very long happy life. Most people overlook this fact but bigger tire/wheel combo puts alot more stress on driveline.

Bottom line, if you're tight on money and can't afford to repair it when it breaks I would suggest leaving it alone.

36's for everyday driving will be ok, but if you decide to take offroading, it will definitely break.

I was definitly planning on doing the truck the right way, im not looking for a mall cruiser, i want to run the hell out of the truck.Not really short on cash i just have christmas and a few misc bill's to get paid before i dump a ton of money into a truck thats not a DD.If anyone know's me i have nver left anything i have owned completely stock, it's my drug, i guess.So as far as the drive line what would bolt in that i should keep an eye out for? im all about good deal's. Please keep the comments and suggestion's coming im a dumbass when it comes to any type of car thats not a honda

City driving you'd be find bolting on the 36's. Don't hammer on it though!

Time for a SAS and a 14 bolt!

^^^ hes got the right idea. do a solid axle swap in the front and at least a dana 60 in the rear but 14 bolts are a dime a dozen and they are dirt cheap.
