Re: 35x15.5-15 Super Swamper TSL/SX
A few things, your will really need steeper then the 5.12, and i think they make a 5.33 yukon. Without the grs1 in at the very least its not going to matter that much at all, its going to be brutal on your clutch. One thing that first came to mind was "boy i sure hope tim has power steering" because your going to need it. Those swamper dont flex all that well when aired down, we took the stems out on a set of 33's last year and it was zilch for flex, the sammi doesnt have enough weight. To answer your questions, the 2 inch body kit might be your cheap answer, but id address the rims your about to order, get the 2 inch backspacing, not 2.5" to keep off your springs, plus you widen your stance to offset your height a little.
This also address the fact, you have done all this wonderful work, and i see that its coming, but ill push it for that matter. Tim, you need a roll cage in there. Safety first, fun next.
so in review to your direct questions, 1) the 2 inch body lift should do the trick, just watch your upwards travel on the bumpstops, and watch your Gas filler tube guard.
2) Get the lowest you can go, 5.33 or 5.80 I think calmini has that to offer. If its just stock sidekick/tracker ones then all you have for a choice is the 5.13's. Here begs another question. If you cant afford the grs1 but you can the r/ps then why not get the grs1? The rps are still close in price, if you saved a whole two weeks, i bet you could just splurge on the transfer.....
