I have an '87 3/4 chevy that I had a four inch lift in with 33 inch tires. It looked a little funny but acceptable. Then I added a two inch body lift and it looked really funny. I don't think it looks good at all. I put 36s on it and it looks awesome now. In my opinion you need 35s or 36s on a 6 inch lift. In my experience if you want the truck to look it's best you need to use the largest size tire possible for your lift.

yeah

now that I have my 14 bolt in the rear I can put on 36's and not be afraid of destroying that puny 12-bolt I took out. Man those things are different.

I agree fully.. 6" and 33's just doesnt look right.. I happen to love BFG M/T 33's.. they're a great all purpose tire and a perfect compromise when it comes to size.. but they look puny with 6".. I think they look perfect with 3-3.5" of lift

on my truck which has the stock lift now (77 K20) the 33's look big, almost too big.. i plan to go with a 3-4" lift soon to even it out..

Most of the trucks i see with 33's look best with under 4 inchse of lift....6inches with 33's looks like baby doughnuts on a monster rig..if you go above 4 I say jump to some 35's...this week I converted my 82 long bed to a heavy half and the leafsprings jacked the pack up 3-3.5inches...with P235's (29inch) tires underneath they look like some little baby's so i am gonna go up to a 31-33inch tire. Btw this conversion has stiffened the rear end like a rock and bumps and the whole rear end jumps off the road...not a suggestion if you wish your truck to ride like a car. We are loading the 82 down with heavy trailer anyway so it should be fine

stiff suspensions

Stiff suspensions aren't really good for offroading are they? Makes you hop off the road.
