Re: tire size
Tread type makes all the difference here. I could fit 31" all terrain bfgs with no problems, but I wanted mud-terrain tires and ended up putting fiberglass on 'em to clear the back of the fender. Otherwise you would have to remove or bend back the metal splash guard to clear the tires. Careful, because just running with them as stock can bend the splash guard part into a nice, sharp curl!
I had a 2" body lift and could easily fit 30x9.50 BFG all-terrains with zero rubbing. So in order to put on some meatier tires with aggressive tread you might have to go with 30" or less. Of course this was on a '98, YMMV.
