Arrow Tire size and lift?

i have a 2001 v6 4.0 2x4 edge stepside thats in need for new tires. i plan to keep the stock rims but i want to go with a larger tire size. i may go with a lift but i wanted suggestions on companies to go with. i also wanted to know what would be a good tire size that you guys have found that you really like and if its even worth getting a body lift

Camburg makes a really nice lift kit for the edge, its a 3 or 4 in lift and with a torsion crank you can get up to 6 in lift on front and run a 33' or 35' tire but id go with a 33'' all terrain o mud terrain

^^^ thats a long travel kit.


if you wanna keep stock go 32x11.5x15 or if you have 16's 265x75x16

best way is go with 3.5" lift spindles after that you can run 33x12.5x15 or you can go with a body lift instead of spindles and run 33's

Why do so many go with the 31's then? How much will it affect my mpg?

check out at the top of this section the stickied thread called maximum tire size chart. badda boom, badda bing! after that SEARCH using the search function. SO much info is on here, and on google about different kinds of lifts, their costs, pros and cons, etc. you have to put in some work on your own.
