Id got with the at's btw, but againg this is all on you. You do what YOU want to do. It's your truck be happy with it. But I will tell you that is you do just the body lift, and your like me. I told myself a body lift will be enough, now i got a 4" suspension lift, and now i want bigger. It all depends on the person you are tho. Either way we are all here to help out.

well i really didnt want to fork over the extra 100 for leveling coils but it looks nice.. you'd go with the A/T, why is that? either way i like your truck.

People have their opinions with tires. But if your not going to off road and doing it for looks, go with at's. They will last longer than Mt's, and they are good for ANY driving conditions. Go to Bf's web site and look at the tire comparisions and you'll see. Anb btw if you did a poll.......99% of them im sure would be for the all t's


and yes, 4" suspension, and 3" body with coils

I wouldnt know unless i did it. Before I would do it Id look up more info. I still rubb alil at full turn with my 33's and 4.25" back spacing on my radius arms........I know your not arguing you just want to make extra extra sure. Im saying 32's only because you KNOW THAT they will fit. Thats all budd

cardomain? photobucket? myspace? most of the sites you will have to sign up, but photobucket takes like 1-2 mins

ok i got some measurments, i went to the truck with a measuring tape and for the back tire i have about 5 inches from top of the tire to the flare if you get what i mean.. then i got 4 1/8'' from side of tire to flare so somewhat like this O->) the ) is the flare.. for the front its 4 1/2'' from top of tire to flare and 3 1/4'' from side tire to bumper... maybe that helps.

I never seriously off roaded my truck with just the body lift and 33s, maybe that's why I never experienced rubbing on the bumper or flares, but I did a few small trails to the place we camp at and never had issues

Be aware that more backspace means ur tires are closer to the body, so 4.25" backspace will move the tires ferther away from the fender flares but closer to the rad arms so 3.75" backspace will move them away from the rad arms a little bit which is what helped my rubbing issues

i had a 94 ranger 2wd with a 4.0 and i got some leveling coils and flaired fiberglass front fenders and ran 33x12.5 on it with only slight ribbing while turning and hitting some whoops.. i had to cut the stock bumper because it hit it while turning

heres a pic (it ddint sit that low in the back it had a large load of rocks in it)



so with as easy as it was to put in those coils.. and the fact that yours are probably worn out anyway (i know mine were) id get a set of the leveling coils and the body lift. i know the coils were like 220 bucks and its way better then coil spacers... and they were able to correct the alignment with only the 2inch leveling coils..

good luck, JOSH
