Zone 4.5 on 30" tires?

I was looking at their 3, but it doesn't come with the LCAs, and I got this track br and a set of bumpers... which, it will end up probably at 3.5"

But, how off will that look? Got a set of 30x9.5x15's sitting waiting to be mounted in the shed.

I'm guessing slightly smaller than 31s would look...

Tires larger than 30x9.5 start loosing road manners pretty quickly, but I'm afraid they'll look pretty tiny under 4.5" of lift. 3.5" is probably the upper limit.

My main concern is a quick sagging lift with bumpers and rear quarter armor, and a small cage inside (roof mod, cage needed). My 3.5 I had at one point ended up being 2" after a year and a pair of bumpers.

That has more to do with coil and spring rates, do research into the different lift companies and their rates. The stiffer the spring, the less it will sag, but the harder it will ride.
