well money wise worked out a little better than planned and i picked up a used set of 235/75 15 for it yesterday got the other 2 rims finished and after beating the hell outta the front and back of the wheelwells i got them on, still got some turning rubbing issues i gotta take care of but other then that they are on. think i might pull them off 4 a little bit though till i can fab up a lift 4 it since i only have about an inch of clearance on the top of the tire adn even with a slight bump going through my yard it rubbed both front and rear. so right now it may have a bit more ground clearance but its pretty much useless offroad at the moment. i get a few pics of it this afternoon after i get some sleep since i just got home from work.
Did everyone catch that? 235/75 (same as mine, 28.9"x8.5") R 15..... NO LIFT!
Rage it dude!
Go with a 4" lift for sure. Cost will be about the same as a 3" lift. 6" isnt out of the question; just harder finding the nuts and bolts.

the only form of a lift it has right now is the suspension adjusted all the way up in the back and about 1/2 way in front, the suspension was perfect before i adjusted it so that might help a little
as for price about the onlything that is really gonna cost me anything is the strut tops and steering extension, which im gonna have to get some exact measurements of and have someone make it for me since i dont have a welder tight now.
as for the rest of the stuff i gotta go talk to a guy i know and he might be letting me get all the stuff im gonna need from him 4 free, might even be able to get him to make up the other stuff as well

so obviously the tires are gonna be staying on now, and as soon as i get the lift done ill buy a new set for it.
