    2 inch lift with 32\'s?

    Will it look funny?

    I would like a 2 inch lift, but I am not sure how it will look with 32 inch tires? Once the 32's wear out I will go to 33's, but that might be a while.

    I say yes.

    But then I think a 4" lift with 33's looks funny too.

    *I* wouldn't lift it unless absolutely necessary. More tire in the wheelwell looks much cooler than too little tire, too much wheelwell. (look at some of the newish Dodge pickups if you don't believe me)

    Full wheel wells looks good is my opinion and support. I was running 33s stock and am now running 35s with a 2 inch add-a-leaf, which actually gave me more like 3 or 3.5 inches, without any cutting. Go for it.

    Re: 2 inch lift with 32\'s?

    i think 33's with a 4 inch lift is perfect. If you do any offroading why would would you want 35's with a 4 inch lift i have a 6 inch lift with 35's and it already eats the wheel wells up enough. If its just a street truck i guess thats ok. But i dont think the whole "full-wheel wells" mantra is good. It is whatever gives you the performance or looks you need.

    People like to keep the lifts down to keep the CG down as well. I know when I get a lift I'm going 4" all the way around with 35s.

    Re: 2 inch lift with 32\'s?

    I don't want too much lift because I like parking the truck in the garage. I take the truck camping/shooting/hunting/etc, but I don't beat the crap out of it. The spring bushings are shot, so I figured if I have to replace the bushings I might as well get new springs.

    Re: 2 inch lift with 32\'s?

    I hate the look of stuffed fender wells. I would go with a 6" lift with 32 or 33's. I used to have 6" w/33's and it looked good, now I have 9"s with 35" boggers and 16.5x14 scorpio V welds, looks awesome.

    Don't you know it. I get seriously hindered performance off-road with my 7" of lift and 42s!

    And all those trips offroad with 4" lift and 35s, I simply must have been defying the laws of mechanical logic!

    I had 32s on my Jimmy when it was stock. Yes they filled the wheel wells and looked good, but due to suspension sag, they rubbed on the street under tight turns. They NEVER would have worked off-road.

    I think 2" lift and 32s would probably be fine. And you will have some of the big work out of the way for when you might go with 33s.
