Lift opinions

What (in your opinion) would be the best way to gain at least 3 inches on a 99 XLT 2wd 3.0? Web link to parts preferred. I'm looking for anything that will keep my 31x10.5s from rubbing.

Bigger tires, a case of beer, and a little extra patience.

Bigger tires? The 31s i have now rub like crazy when full lock. I can only imagine I would be able to maybe get 33s after the lift.

If you're worried about rubbing, leave the 31's. It'll look goofy as hell though IMO.

No 31s look good on a coil sprung, look at chstrogen08 or something like that.
