Well, it looks like you'd do good to learn how to save money. With the 35's (or larger), you would need a lift first. And with the size lift you'd need, it'd look pretty silly driving around on stock tires while you wait to get wheels and larger tires. And once you got the tires, your truck would be begging for new gears. If saving money is that difficult for you, it'd probably be a good idea to just buy things when you can, but hold off on installing it all until you've got everything. For example, buy the wheels and tires, then the lift, then the gears. Then install everything at once. Of course, going that route, it doesn't really matter what you buy first.

Good advice. One mod tends to lead to another, whether out of want, or in your case, actual need. If you go 35s you are going to want more than 6" of lift which will require a combination of lifts which means more money. Big tires are going to require regearing, etc, like stated above. It's best to plan out what you plan on doing with your truck and how much you are willing to invest, and go from there. Research before you buy, and do it right the first time, it's much cheaper to do it once. Either way, if you are getting into wheeling a lot, welcome to the money pit, get used to it :D Good luck with whatever you choose.

like those 2 said...everything well lead into another thing and another and another...
so either get them all at once and install them...or buy them one by one and install everything whenever you have all the parts..

since it's gonna be noticeable...with like 8" of lift or something like that...
with stock wheels...won't look good...

Buy the lift and gears first... I recommend buying tires and wheels last because style and size preference may change... I know I spent three months looking over tires and wheels before I settled on what I wanted.... You wouldn't want to buy something and then down the road find something new syled that you like better and now be stuck with something you no longer want.
