Re: Lift Kit or Spring Over?
I don't know all that much about lifts (with the wheeling I do, being tall is a liability), but I'm pretty sure you don't need to lift it THAT much for 33 inch tires. I was able to fit 31" tires into my 1980 Scout II, which is unlifted (actually, thanks to bad body mounts the left front body actually sags some). I have had no rubbing problems. For 33" tires, I'm pretty sure you DO have to lift the truck some, but I think you could get away with a 2" body lift, which, from what I've heard, is relatively easy. Anything Scout sells 1.5" and 2" body lift kits for Scout II's for $85. I'm not sure about suspension lifts; I don't think a spring-over is a very easy thing to do. Just my $.02...
