tires i think that 30x9.50x15 is biggest you can go stock. lift you can get a 2 inch body lift for about 200 dollars. lift shackles and tbar crank can get you 1 to 2 inches.

yea sounds like you want a body lift and a tbar crank should give you 3-4 inches. largest tire you can fit right now are 30x9.5x15 if you get those two lifts you can fit 32x11.5x15's

Yea 50 is probably the cheapest good one you can get. U can get the ones at advance auto for 30 but they have no reinforcment so ur better off getting the better ones

I would say you can go to auto zone and buy a $16 shackle lift for the rear end. then raise your torsion bars up a bit to level it out and you will have about 2.5 in. cheap lift. then you can put 31x10.5x15 tires on.

autozone shackles are not quality built, you risk twisting your leafs, and having the rear axle uneven which will create a very unpleasant ride

yeah. but when you get new shackles get new bushings too. be prepared to have a hard time doing this. i started it one night thinking ill just unbolt the old ones and put the new ones on.... no the case. took me almost 2 days to finish.
