Default Rough country 2.5" lift tire size

I have a 2001 4x4 4 door and am looking to put the RC suspension lift on it. I want to run 32s, but the kit only recommends 31s. Looking to see if anyone has done this. I'm willing to do some trimming where needed to fit.

it says they are reindexed keys so it dosnt put added stress. they put the same load on the torsion bars but the shape of the key makes them taller

doesnt do anything to relieve stress on suspension components. To much angle on the axle, ball joints and tierods. the most you should do without a proper lift kit( lower transaxle) is 1.5 inches

Is there a lower transaxle kit I can get because I already have the parts and they're being installed today

I don't have 500 to drop on the truck. It's my daily driver but on an average day I only drive 8 Miles I'll look into it locally at some of the 4x4 shops
