    So im looking to get the 2.75" readylift and throw on some 31" or 33" A/T's. i just wanna know what all else would i need to not blow my transmission in my truck or rub. where would i get wheel spacers and what sizes would i need? i have a 2009 2.7l 4 banger that really likes the mud, it just doesnt like getting stuck OR grinding stumps and roots. im not looking to spend lots of $$$ but im not gonna cheap out either. any advice or suggestions would be great. (getting a new truck isnt an option at the moment) thanks in advance guys!

    And if you are planning on only going in mud, get MT's instead of AT's, not too sure about a spindle lift though

    its not always real muddy but it does get slick out there. im mainly on the road but the 25% of the time im not. i wanna get decent traction and be less likely to get stuck like i do now.
