Just throwing it out there...if you do decide to get a body lift kit, you will need "gap-guards" to put between the frame of your truck and the fender well. Here is a link:

That's very true I kinda got ahead of my self on that. But still in my opinion a suspension lift is still gonna be the better route to go.

Hmm that's the next hard question! I really don't know ... Read a lot of tire threads but the problem is you use a different measurement system and you all mention 31s, 32s etc - makes no sense overhear

What would you recommend for a 4inch lift and how big is possible ? I am looking for off road / all terrain and big ones

Default Re: Body lift kit 2wd + new shocks! Recommend me options :)

Hmm, i think i might have 15x8 rims on it - but they need to refurbished and i want them painted black as well (all chrome is gonna say bye bye on my dranger )

But i will check it out!

Can you recommend any offroad/AT tires? Brands, links, etc.
