Talking Any Lifted 4 Cylinders? Post Here!

Been looking into maybe lifting my truck a couple inches and was wondering if many others out there had a lifted 4 cylinder? Be nice to have a reference to the amount of lift and size of tires you can achieve! Post your pics up and tell your specs, please!

My old 1993. 2.3L Manual XLT only options chrome bumpers, rear slider and A/C lol... It had a 2" leveling kit. nothing major. the black wheels were 265x75x16 STT coopers or 265x75x16 BFG A/T on 16x8 wheels, or I had 32x11.5x15 on stock alcoa's


Sorry for all the pics I got into finding all of them on my photobucket account. Man I miss my old trucks!!

you could tell the steel 16x8 because of the weight. the alcoa's and 32's where the best set up.

Im thinking about going with steel 15x7, since its stock lol. Was the weight difference really that much, with the alcoas?

you have stock steel 15x7 wheels now so getting aftermarket steel 15x7 is pointless. upgrade to alum
