    2\' lift

    I need to know if a 2" lift will clear 35" BF Goodrich tires and what 2" lift do you recommend,I don't do much hardcore offroading. I have a 6" lift on the Jimmy now and want to set it down somewhat for towing purposes.
    Thanks, Keith

    You'll need to do quite a bit of trimming on the fenders to get clearance for those tires. You could lower the front bumpstops a little bit to keep the tires out of the fenders. Where are you located? I've got a 2.5 inch lift that I would trade you for the 6 incher. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Re: 2\' lift

    Wanna do a cross-shipment? I've got a 2.5 inch lift, with rear blocks. My rear axle is a 14-bolt, so the U-bolts are too big to fit on a 10 or 12 bolt rear. Other than that it should bolt right up to your truck. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
