You can fit 31's at stock ride height.

Way too much done to list and it's also not even close to done

You can't fit 31s on a stock Gen 1. You will rub on everything.

All you need is about 2 to 3 inches of lift. I have a Gen 2 with 2 inches of lift and I run 31s.

Depending on what you wanted to do to lift it. You can do a body lift for a quick easy lift.

You can find a suspension lift for you truck. They come in all sorts of sizes. From 2 inches to 6 inches.
