Default bigger tires and a little lift

so im buying 32x11.50x15 BFG Mud-Terrain KM2's. im going to buy Belltech 6400 shackles and do a 3" tbar crank.
any one see any problems here? wheel clearance or any one had problems with tbar crank sagging after use, or shackles are cheap pieces of junk, or last that i will need to get bigger shocks?
also for the time being i would be putting them on the so called (FX4 rims)
Thanks,
Colton

FX4 rims are 16 inch rims... get 285's they will fit on your stock rim and are the same size as 32x11.50 tires

I think i am leaning more towards blocks when I do mine. but that just me. IMO shackles seem to effect the ride more than block.

IMHO you're going to be hard pressed to get a solid 3" out of a t-bar crank, and I would opt against the shackles. Just crank the bars until the trucks leveled and slap on the 32s.
