If you are getting new rims then you don't need spacers. The back spacing you want is 3.73 or 4". If you keep your stock rims then you can get some wheel spacers that are 1.25 or 1.5" thick.
You can get a 2" budget boost with some new shocks to fit 31x 10.50's.
Save some money with the tires and get the www.treadwright.com
Warden tires. They are the same mold as the BFG's and for less money. I have been running the Guard Dogs for over a year. They are great tires. Send Nick and email at email@example.com
and ask him about the lift and shocks. He's got some great prices for the Bilstein shocks.
