Might as well get 35s. You have TONS of clearance.

Id say get some rock sliders, otherwise the highlift is useless.

i need your fellow opinions:
so the rusty springs in the rear are a little higher than the front so im stink bugging it

do you think the rear will sag down more after i put this on the rear?

-TAG steel bumper with swing out tire carrier
-31x10.5 spare with steel 15x10 rim
- hi lift jack mounted on the bumper

?????????

let me know thanks\....

based upon your photos above, if anything it looks like the opposite, that your front is way higher.

Regardless, yes, youll be adding a coupled hundred pounds to the rear so itll sag more.

Also, get a real spare. Check CL or just get one at a tire shop that sells cheap used tires.

Call around to your local tire stores, you can pick up good spares for dirt cheap. I've bought 35s mtr for 10 a pop, maybe 3/32tread. 4 32 11.50s min 5/32 tread max was 10/32 for 20 a pop. 31s bfg atl 5/32 tread 10 a pop. All within a month. I also work at a discount tire so my used tire price is better then your price. So theres definitely good spares out there for cheap.

So I called rustys to see why the rear was still higher with a spacer in the front and this is what she said "of you put a spacer in the front it compresses the coil and lowers your lift height" what??? Haha
