To get your feet wet do as Greg suggested and get a spacer lift. You can fit 33" tires easily with just that. You can't flex much ..but they fit. You can also add a 1" body and motor mount lift if you want more clearance. Get the "kit" with the shocks ..the stock shocks are not long enough even with just 1 3/4" that the spacers provide ...and although you can get the spacers seperate ...and wothwhile shock will cost you more than the ones provided in the kits (they may in fact be cheapo ...but they are the right length).

This should keep you happy for a while until you determine your budget limit for this distraction[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] .

Virtually any spacer kit works. You're looking at around $200 +/- with spacers, bump stops, and shocks). A body lift can run between $60 - $120 depending on manufacturer ...and motor mount spacers can be had for $45 ..or extended motor mounts for around $80.
