    do you want mud terrain or all terrain?
    if all terrain i highly reccomend nitto terra grapplers. or cooper LTZ's both great tires and are not to expensive

    Dont get a body lift, they are just so shitty, get a 3 inch suspension (not spacers) and keep your body where it is

    Yeah dude I made the mistake of going with spacers first time around.
    It was a waste of 250 or 300 because I ended up takin them off and getting CO's.

    I'm not going to reccomend a "good body lift" because there are no "good" body lifts. I reccomend you don't lift until you have the money to do it right

    well if you dont mind, how much do you have to spend? it will help narrow your options for a lift

    yup.

    max body lift i'd do is 1", and only if i needed a bit extra clearance to fit bigger tars (say 35s)

    also, "tough looking offroad tires" cost at least $750.

    I recommend not doing anything, and waiting til you can afford suspension lift and tires at the same time. Looking at dumping $2000 at once for a full OME suspension (IMO, 881s in the front, dakars in the back, nitrochargers on all 4 corners...can be cheaper if you go AAL instead of a new pack, but I wouldn't)

    thats just my opinion though.
