Good question...I had originally planned on doing 33/12.50's with no lift. Im thinking of now doing a body lift while I'm waiting on the tires to arrive. Not sure what to go with though....I'll be watching this thread to see what people are using.

Pwrranger88, how do you like those poly body mounts? Doing the body lift would be a good time to change these old ones out...I have used poly trans and engine mounts before and the vibration transmitted to the vehicle was pretty noticeable, did you notice much difference when these were installed?

Sorry for the thread hijack! Ron

when doing the body lift it is the easiest time to change the body mounts
the poly cab bushings made a big difference on my ranger it rode allot smoother then it did with the dry rotted factory rubber bushings. i plan on replacing the cab mounts with poly ones on my bronco ll when i do my body lift
what are the other??? i dont really know much about body lifts
he was talking about the cab mounts the factory ones are usually dry rotted and when you do your body lift it is a good time to replace them cause you have every thing apart already. the reason i went with poly because they are allot cheaper then any rubber replacement ones i could find
