At a 4" lift is where you need a pitman arm, etc..


With the leveling kits I do recommend using an adjustable trac bar though.

Depending on what tire and wheel combo you go with, you could run a 33-35" tall tire. I wouldn't recommend a 35/12.50 on 10" wide wheels with only a leveling kit though.

Yep. That is assuming you are getting a setup with new shocks up front as well.
