you can only wheel so much with a 2wd, w/o a locker or something of some sort lol. but 31's with no lift will be fine dude.

You may be fine man just be carful with it you have a nice truck dont wanna see it all jacked up.Thinking about it when i swaped my shocks you may be fine. Our front shocks between fully compressed to fully extended only move like a 1"-1 1/2". So figure with the tires on the ground your in the probley in the middle somewhere.

if you get coil spacers, it'll level your truck, if you get shackles or AAL, then you're gonna be unlevel again lol. but, get shackles if you don't care about being unlevel.

get 2 inch coil spacers, and shackles. worst thing that can happen is you don't like how it sits, so you take the shackles off.

Can't believe I missed this thread. So anyway, I am running 31s on my coil sprung 2WD. There is only like an inch between the fender and the tire. It's close. Really close. No rubbing on anything though. My back has expo leafs which give 2 inches of lift. I have 3 inch Doetsch lift spindles sitting in the garage ready to go on. I also have 3 inch coil spring spacers that I am debating if I want to add. The problem with coil spring spacers is they move the LCA away from the body, therefore they extend out the shock and they bring the UCA down. This gives you less travel downward.

It's 250 miles for me, one way.
I'd hate to pay $100 just to ship the darn things, but it would be about the same in gas if I was to pick them up.

Why can't they be closer to the city?, they'd probably get a lot more business.
