you could always do a 1.25" bl and a mml for under $200, that would get you to 33's on street or 32's on the trails. i trimmed the flares and ran 33's offroad with just a 1.25" bl, and 3.75" back spacing. no rubbing

Thanks for the ideas, not looking to do a body lift. I have OME 4" springs, so started on my suspension but then I bought a new mower and the better half told me I needed to slow down on the spending....ooops, but I need a set of tires. I seen a set of 285 BFG's on CL for $900, but I see they won't fit without a lift. I guess I'm down to some major butt kissing.....Thanks for the help
