    Finished 2 inch Body lift!

    Yeah. I plan on getting some 32x11.50 or 33x12.50's in the next couple of weeks. And I definitely recommend the 2 inch. It only took me 6 hr to complete. Takes a little to find the bolts for sale though.

    MPG with A/T Tires.

    Go for the BF Goodrich rugged trail T/A. As far as I have been able to see, they have all the plusses of great gas mileage coupled with the mild off-road performance.
