stared at it wishing i had money to put it back on the road... and im calculating to see what it would cost to put a 6" susp lift and 3" body lift and new tires.

its weird i am pricing out tires on 4wheelonline.com they have the super swamper TSL boggers in 31x12.50x15 for $281.05 a tire and the 33x10.50x15 are only $266.15 a tire. the swamper TSL bias tires are only $144.17 a tire.. which is only 576.68 for all 4 plus shipping taxes etc..

eventually wanna get some meaty tires and was thinking swampers either the swamper boggers or the swamper TSL bias tires..

susp lift BDS: 883.87
31" boggers : 1124.20
BL: 150.00
------------------------
2158.07


susp lift 883.87
BL: 150.00
TSL Bias 576.68
------------------
1610.55


susp lift: 883.87
BL: 150.00
33" boggers: 1064.60
---------------------
2098.47
i was shocked by the price difference between 4 boggers and 4 bias tires... thats what i've been doing the last couple of hours. these estimates dont include rims, but i havent found a decent looking rim yet as my stock rims are only 15x7.
