Shouldn't I install a lift? (recommended height and brand?)

and buy some 15x8 black rock crawlers <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

and go ahead and get some 33x12.50's (recommended brand for all Terrain?)

and strap on a big ugly bumper (ARB)

and a winch (Multi Mount?)

and some 4.56's

and... <IMG SRC="smilies/laughing.gif" border="0">

I got some 15x8 Rock crawlers with your name all over em. $50 plus shipping for all 4. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Oh yeah, do the lift now and get the tires you want now.

Best all-terrain I know of is the BFG MT <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

good street manners
good offroad manners
good longevity overall/mixed driving
expect 40k out of set
run at 12psi offroad (or thereabouts)
adequate mud traction

just hand-sipe the center blocks or have them done professionally and you've got a great all weather, all season tire

Option 2 is to stall a bit for the MT-KM and pick up a set in a 33x10.5...those "should" fit your vehicle stock. I run the AT-KO's on my pickup in a 33x10.5 with no lift (95 Toyota V6) and like them....but not a great offroad tire. Nice onroad, nice for packed trails. My next one will be a MT without question.

Had a buddy get 65k out of his BFG all-terrains, and they still looked fairly good.
This was on an FJ40. I ran them on an old bronco, and loved them.
I run swampers now, but would not recommend them as an on road tire.

I have seen the MT/R's in action, and they did amazingly well off road, but had a fairly short tread life. (short being relative. maybe 25-30K?)

Either way, they are both great tires. Stay away from the off brands. I had a set of Kuhmo nud tires given to me (33x12.5) and when one developed a sidewall bulge, it was quoted at $175 plus shipping to replace.

I have seen thornbirds in mud. They may as well say "Sears Trailhandler" on them. <IMG SRC="smilies/eyemouth.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/eyemouth.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/eyemouth.gif" border="0">
