    with a auto.trans.-6 inches
    w/manual trans.-4
    This is if everything else remains stock.You could also add a body lift on top of this, but there are some drawbacks with them.

    WELL IT DEPENDS WHAT TYPE OF WHEELING YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. IF YOU LIKE THE DEEP MUD HOLES GO WITH A 10 OR 12 INCH LIFT AND BIG MUD TIRES. BUT, I THINK IF YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT ALL AROUND WHEELING ON ALL TYPES OF TERRAIN A GOOD 6 INCH LIFT SAY FROM SKYJACKER; AND SOME MUD TERRAIN 35 INCH TIRES SHOULD DO THE JOB.
