Just don't get the “if a little is good then more is better” syndrome.
I know some people that just cranked them up the whole way and the results are not good. A lot of excess wear on the front end.
I did this on my trail truck (over 2") and the bars sagged after just a few off road trips. That definitely isn't typical, I just beat the poor thing to death (lots of jumps). I could have had something to do with when my friend thought it would be fun to drive into a dug foundation (6 foot almost vertical drop). But that is a whole other story.

I'd say 1-1.5", maybe I'm conservative, but changing ball joints and CV's isn't fun.
Actually, I like the idea of cranking the bars an 1" so the front suspension doesn't bottom out as much on the trails.
Don't forget an alignment when you are done.
Tires, I am not one of the majority. BFG is a great tire, but I got really pi$$ed when they set minimum pricing on the AT's. I'll take a set of Coopers and 4 cases of beer over BFG's any day.
MT's or AT's, that is a tough one. I regret not getting MT's every time I go off road, but the other 95% of the time when I am on that hard black stuff or that slippery white stuff I am glad I got AT's. My next set will be muds.
Hit? Them tires rub
. Rubbin's off roadin.
