The bumper looks great. Don't do a body lift for 31's... they'll fit without the lift. You might have to do a little trimming/hammering, but they look better stuffed to me than too tall. If you do a body lift, go 32's or 33's :).

Or... get 2" lift springs or spacers.

we'll just have to see what she looks like.. i have a set of 31's and a single 32... it all depends on the wallet.

i put 31x10.5 on mine stock with no body work/trimming at all. no rubbing. 31's look way to small with a lift.
