Name is Phil, Own a 05 TB w/4.2, looking to lift it soon, been looking at Supreme Suspension's 3" lift and 6x5 - 6x5.5 adapters/spacers, goal is to run a set of 33" tires, not sure on what wheels I want yet

Im most likely buying the 3" lift and spacers from liftmeister and getting some 33" myself, perfect starting setup it seems. Hi and welcome from a newbie myself :)

Skip the Supreme lift and go straight to the liftmeister lift.

After signing up on this forum and reading up on it I've been thinking of it, I was just shooting for a 3" or so lift

Make sure you add a external transmission cooler to your plans, especiallyif you got 3.42 gearing. Our 4L60 transmission and the high stall torque converter produceses a lot of heat on stock tires, now add 33”.

See this chart.
