hmmm i seemed to read over that...

so if youre not happy with 2/2.5. then youre not gonna be happy with 3. so go either 4.5 or bigger with 33's. but with that size youre opening a whole new can of worms. do some research. trackbar, long arms, SYE, extended brake lines, possibly gears. read up

You could trim the fenders and run a set of 32x11.50's, or 33x10.50's and it will still ride decent and not cause all the other headaches that a 4.5" or taller lift will cause. Anything over 3" on short-arms will ride rough, and you will need to replace a lot more stuff. If you have the money to do 4.5" the right way it can be a practical height. If not and you halfass it then you likely won't be happy with anything other than the way it looks.
