Re: Lift and Tire size question
The manufacturers all about the same with a 3" lift. Go for the best deal you can get and also get the dual shock option for the front. Use 8" rims with a 4" backspace to help with clearance. You can run 315's or 35's with a 3" lift with a little rubbing at full lock and articulating heavily.
Attached is my Dodge with 15X8 rims and 35X12.50R15 SuperSwamper SSR's. The fenders have been bobbed and enlarged for the 36X12.50-15 SuperSwamper SX's I sometimes run. I do rub during a full-stuffed, turning articulated run, but not bad.
