New to the Nissan...

I just recently bought my dad a 2wd 95 extended cab hard body with the V6. I got a few questions to ask.

What is the biggest tire that will fit a 2wd?

I'm assuming that cranking the torsion bars will stiffen as well as raise the nose?

Is there any actual 2WD lift kits, springs, spindles or anything out there besides the Rough Country, Calmini, and 4x4 Parts brands?

We have a set of 15x8 chevy truck rally wheels we may end up using if we go to 15 inch wheels, is anybody else running these wheels?

I gave my uncle a set of 29" tires that I took off my 1999 4x4 they did not rub. He put them on a 98 2x4. They rub bad on his truck. However, I recently took the 31's that replaced the old 29's off my 99 (it was lifted ~3 inches.) And put them on my bone stock 91 4x4, and there is no rubbing. Now this is all taking place on 15" wheels with -3.75 back space. So educated guess on max tire size for a 2x4 hardbody. 29~30. As far as your lift goes, you could gain an inch or so for next to nothing with a ball joint spacer and torsion bar crank.
