My question was regarding putting on larger aftermarket tires and slightly lifted to fit those tires. I wasn't looking for your advice whether to lift it or not.

I appreciate all the answers that pertain to my original question. I will look into the recommended vendors and tire sizes. Thank you.

I have a 2.5" leveling kit in the front and I swapped the factory 2" rear block for a 3" block on my 2004 Ex. I have 33" tires and I do get fender rub at full lock both ways.

My wheels are 20x10 with a -24mm offset so take that into consideration for the rub

Would you happen to have the source where you got the lift kit? Been looking places and can only find 1.5" and 2" . Also, can you post a pic of your ride?

My 05 ex is going in the shop tomorrow to have a 2in Rough Country leveling kit installed. We had to buy it straight from the factory because all the local 4x4 shop's were having trouble finding it in their computer system. Will upload pictures when I get it back. I'm running stock wheels and tires now but the plan is to run 33x12.5R18 on Rockstar 18x9 wheels.

This is after installing the Rough Country 2 inch leveling kit on factory wheels and tires. Measuring off the front recovery eyes in the bumper it went from 22" to 25.5". I will finish off the year with a set of 33 tires and then start next year by doing the F250 pickup rear spring swap.
