33x10.50's fit with out any lift and with the correct wheel backspacing 12.50's can fit someone maybe able to fill you in on that one. I do recommend going with a 2" body lift it not only will clear the big tires better you can come straight off the frame with rocksliders and it makes it alot easier to work on the engine/tranny. both the bodylift and rocksliders can be had from www.4crawler.com i believe his rocksliders are bolt on aswell.

there is a 3 inch lift available also if you think that you are up to the challenge.

the shifter will need extending and you will need to carve out the opening to be able to shift properly in 4wd.

your radiator will need lifting and the shroud will need modifying.

your steering pump resevoir will need to be extended..

Adding the gen 2 springs will give you lift in the back as well. cranking the torsion bars is an option but i never liked that myself.

then you can put 35's with very little problems....although i am using 33's because i feel 35's are a little too much for the stock driveline.
