What size tires will fit under a 4" lift???

okay so i purchased my 97 for 200 bucks a little over a year ago and lets just say if i sold it for less than $5,000 right now i would still lose money... so along with my upgrades i found a rough country 4" lift and was wondering what size tires will fit nicely i have 31 inch tires on it now because its the XLT extended cab w/ 4WD

A body lift involves installing a spacer where the body mounts to the frame.

To comfortably fit 35's you need a 4" suspension lift and 3" body lift.

Thats what i had and it still rubbed. But i have the 4.0. I bought some skyjacker 6" coils and it fixed the rubbing. The rough country coils are not going to level the truck out. If you do get that kit get some 2" spacers or 6" coils.

I am running 6 inch and 33's, they HARDLY fit, they will rub if I turn hard and tuck the front wheel.
