I got a set of 33" on 6" backspaced wheels. I rub the frame and torsion bar at full crank. Makes one hell of a racket, thud thud thud thud as each lug makes contact. You learn not to turn so sharp real quick.

You could get either 2" rims or wheels rims with less backspacing than stock 4x4 (about 6") so get some 4" backspacing rims and the wheels will stick out 2" further. Otherwise you could get some wheel spacers. You could also do a t-bar crank of 1-1.5" and 1-2" rear shackles. Or you could go with smaller tires. Most likely your speedometer may be off because of the larger tires so you may want to check that with either a radar sign thing on the side of the road, or if you or a friend has a GPS you could try that. Then go to a shop and have them reprogram the speedometer or get a hypertech tuner.

spacing the wheels out will make them rub the fenders with 31's..... if you space them in any way, you need a bit of lift..
