same here. i currently have 265/75R16 which is 31" in diameter without any type of lifting or cranking of the torsion bars. but yes, it would help if you provided more info on your ride...

Since you listed so much info about your truck I would say that the best way to lift it is probably with a floor jack.

His name implies it is a 97, so it does not have t-bars or coil springs like a '98+ XLT. It says he has a 4.0, so that is a good start. From what I have read skyjacker makes decent lifts for your model truck. 2wd or 4wd? How big do you want to go? What tire size do you want to run? Do you have the motor/gears to run it?

Cranes are usually your best bet, but a decent sized forklift would do it too

Please Use Search Function, this has been answered countless times. This thread is from 5 days ago and is from half way down this page, it will answer your question on a lift for 31's, I am assuming you have a '97 by your screen name. It even has links to parts you need on the summit website.

And here is how high it will sit on 31's. Approximately 22 inches to bottom of rocker panel.
