Hey smokshow, I've herd some of the guys going to 35s with a leveling kit, check some of the threads in general discussion and see what they have to say, it's a common subject, or you could do a search on leveling kits and see what comes up. But I'm sure one of the lifted guys will be along.

I'm thinking a 33x12.5 would be the biggest tire you could run on an 9 or 10 inch wide rim without rubbing. If you stuck with 8's you may get a 35 under there. I had about 3.5 inches of lift on my '02, sitting on 35x12.5 and 18x10's. They rubbed at full turn on level ground.

I went with Rancho's 2.5 inch front spring replacement. It's a good kit. I run 285/75/R16s on 16x10 inch rims with no rubbing issues. But, I'm going back to an 8inch wide rim here soon. I've heard too many stories bout the 10inchers wearing out front end parts. Plus, I'm sure like all of you know, the power steering at low speeds is bad enough, and the 10in rim's bigger footprint doesn't help.
