My 93 has 6" Susp. Lift with a 3" BL and I am running 35's with no rubbing...I think I could get away with 36's, but I like the look of the 35's. I would say 37's but I wouldnt run anything bigger than a 35" tire, even with 11" of lift.

PIC!!

Are you going to use this truck off road at all? I odn't think that if you just throw 11" of lift and the biggest tires possible your trucks going to last long. Not to mention you're going to have to regear or have the slowest truck ever ha ha ha.

with a 8" skyjacker lift.. only expect about 6-6.5" lift in the front.. as your 4.0L will sag the soft coils out.. also.. don't run anything bigger than 35" on the front Dana35.. i will be up at 11" lift in the front ina few weeks.. and 35's will look fine
