Seeing as how I have a 99 xlt, i wouldnt go past the 5.5" from fabtech. But mines a 2wd. On a 4x4, Superlift and a BL would be my max if i had one

Those people need to be slapped for their stupidity. WTF was the jeep guy thinking.

on subject... enough to squeeze about a 31 to a 33 is a pretty common medium. although 35s look nice as well, just ends up getting a little pricey.

why lift it then? you can fit that stock. i think the perfect size is double lifted on 35's. thats about 8-9" of lift.

i did a quick search and heres the first one i came across. its LiftKitRanger's

haha i was waiting for someone to say this. my trucks built for a purpose, not looks. and plus, when i get bigger tires, i think you might change your mind. stupid for a DD, yes, but not stupid looking.
