Save your money on the torsion keys and just turn the adjusting bolts.
31s will fit fine

You can run 31s with no prob, I ran 32s with just a t-bar crank. And don't waste your money on the new keys. If anything for the front look into some fx4 t-bars.

Im running 31x10.50s now. torsion bars are up all ready they clear no problem. i would just like to have it sit up a little bit higher with out doing a body lift im not a fan of those. and dont want a real high lift either. cause my BFGs now are only a year old thats a lot of money for new tires i dont need. Im a afraid new keys and an add leaf would make it look like i need larger tires

Yea thats what im looking for. i was looking into a new torsion bar key and add a leaf kit for it. but i dont know what it would like with 31's on it. im not a fan of body lifts. and ive got a brush guard, exhaust, and hitch. i dont like they body lifts make those look.
