    I have a 96 SPORT,, 4x4,
    i would like to throw some 33's under that sob, but dont really wanna go through the effort of throwing on a body lift. If i put some 15x10.5/ or 12.5 rims would i get by w/ out having to lift or mild trimming?? ooooooR
    would i need to lift it and deal w/ that mess? Thanks ,, i tried searching but havent had any luck.
    Thanks for the insight,
    Dave

    i have 33's on mine, with no cutting so far , it wasn't easy , and it was not cheap, but it can be done,,
    how did i do it ?

    suspension lift , and the wheels and tires,

    if you want to go a bit bigger in the wheel and tire department, there is a way to lift it for cheap high enuff for 31 inch tires,,

    31's will fit fine, i had a set on my old explorer sport, stock , but im trying to avoid doing the body lift, and deff not spending money on a suspension lift. I was just wondering if it could be one w/ out going those routes, body lift would deff be cheaper, but still a lot of labor. Thanks for the info fellas!,
