I was just wondering what everyone paid for their spindle lift. And it recommends 31's, but can you go bigger?

You can fit 31's stock.. NO rubbing. I'd hope you could fit bigger with a lift...

I paid $599 even with free shipping at:

The lift was a pain in teh @ss to put on, if you don't have the right tools, good luck to you, oh and you are going to need a good hammer, cause you have to beat the crap out of the old spindles to get them off. I called Fabtech and they said the only way to get them off of the lower control arm is to hit them as hard as you can until they drop. Good luck.....

Not to be the b*tch around here or anything, but you could have gotten the spindle a lot cheaper than that. I paid $450 for the complete kit at 4WP and that was for the ProComp Lift..Probably would have been the same for the Fabtech Lift too if I went that route too..Either way, post up some pics of the lift on bro..

I believe the recommendation for 31's is based on a standard 4x2 non-Edge Ranger which, when spindle lifted, is only slightly higher than a stock Edge. In addition, some manufacturers are not recommending "big" tires because it avoids liability. If you exceed their recommendation and break something, it's not their fault.
