3" BL on XLT 2wd questions

Ok well I currently have a 04 XLT 2wd with the regular bed not the stepside and was thinking of lifting it with a 3" BL and putting maybe 31s on it 32s if I could. I was just wondering what the 2wd guys were doing to get some clearence? I really like going up north (payson) and going off the quad trails and going places that make the underside of my truck bottom out. I originally was going for speed with my truck but now Im starting to think lift... Im not sure what my rims are on my truck I think 15x8. My rear tires are 275s so I was hoping I could fit a 32/11.5/15 on it but I kinda doubt it. Also when you do a body lift does the exhaust hang down stupidly low?

Does anyone have a pic of their spindle kit installed? I mean the actual parts but any pics would be nice.

The look is well worth it with the body lift you will look at it and constantly think man I should've done the spindle lift. As for the tires 32's will fit fine.

With a BL the exhaust does look silly as well as being able to see your frame from the side of the truck.

With a 2wd spindle lift is the way to go.

with a spindle since it raises the whole truck it doesnt mess up the exhaust and all that right?

What about this.... http://www.jusnesmodified.com/store/...roducts_id=267

Could 32s fit on a 2.5 lift?
