    I want to do a 4" TC and run 15x10 soft hole 8 steel wheels along with 33x13.50x15 toyo mt's

    I only have 342s thats y the 33s

    I get mixed opinions

    some say no save for 14ff and 35s but i really want to lift it

    I figure in a yr or so ill do something different I just dont have the cash for regear and 14ff and 35s

    Pics of a 4" and 33s would be great

    You could try the 52" front/ 56" rear shakle flip to gain your lift (search the site, tons of info) then save your money for 3/4 ton axles with 4.10s and then you get the best of both worlds.

    Many 4 inch pics in my pics . Use an 8 inch wide rim , much better for that size tire .

    ive done my fair share of research i figure ill go shackle flip next yr

    I cant afford to do axles right now and i especially cant afford gears

    if i go 15x8s ill prolly use the stockers
    i wanted 15x10s to make it look bigger

    And i cant see ur pics because im not a paying member

    15 x 10's won't make 33 12.5 15's look any bigger. Smaller. The tire flattens out on the wider rim, and bubbles up on the smaller rim. I know this because I have tried. I hope this helps.

    8" rims are cheaper and will make your 33s look taller... if you're on a budget go with the 8s. AFA the lift goes, DIY shackle flip in back, and some used 4" springs up front would be cheapest. Its not hard to find good used springs, people going to 52s/56s have them all the time. I sold my Ranchos for $50. Definitely cheaper than buying new springs.
