The stocks handle load well, but suck for traction, and when they break loose, they wear down super fast. I think on a 2wd you can fit a 31" at stock hight. I'm sure somebody has done 33"s, but everybodys idea of fitting is different.

not much if there ATs just run at least a 3.73 gearing, which im sure your already at. if you want more peppy when u get the 31s, go to a 4.10
