Well since you don't have a sig we don't know if you have a 2wd or a 4x4.
There is a thread called tire size compatibility or something like that, you can get your questions answered there.

It's a 2wd. But ok, thanks. But one more question about something else! If I got torsion keys to lift my truck, could I still crank them and get double the lift??

Torsion keys suck, put a lot of added stress on the balljoints......BUT if you have a 2wd that is not an "edge" model then you don't have torsion bars so you can't put torsion keys on there......

Sure looks like it was an edge at one point in time with those color matched fender flares.... Most Edge models were 2wd but have the 4x4 suspension components. You can buy torsion keys and crank your bars but I have read from people that have done this and they complain of a rough ride and ball joints wearing excessively. If you are just looking for the lift to clear larger tires then I would just get a body lift.

At one point in time? Meaning it was converted to torsion keys??

----------

Would you suggest trying to convert my suspension to coil over springs?

No. It probably just had the decals removed..... Its doubtful it was converted to the 4x4 suspension but not the 4x4 driveline components as well. Like i stated before, if you are just looking to get bigger tires on it, look for a body lift. Body lifts will give you 3" of lift.

Ok, I'll grab me a body lift then. And if I want the front higher than the back slightly I can always adjust my torsion bars just a tad?

Well was going to see my parents thoughts on getting a puppy but It isn't listed on the website anymore.. Guessing it was adopted.
