    35's or 37's imo. Especially if its just easy offroading, no sense in trying to stuff massive tires if you dont need the clearance, plus you need to consider your gearing with whatever tires you end up running if you arent regeared already.

    personally id remove the body lift,then 33's or 35's would look perportional to the 6'' suspension lift. not to mention if you go with 36-38 inch tires your gonna have to regear.

    Anyone with the talent to weld also has the talent to unweld...

    It's just metal ~ Don't let it being welded confuse ya.

    If you wan to keep the body lift that is one thing if you are keeping it because it is welded that is a relativly easy fix.

    Your options are plentiful ~ ~ ~ ~

    X3 on removing the body lift. Your going to spend more money buying bigger tires, regearing, and the uncomfortable reliability of a body lift than you would paying someone to remove a couple welds.

    If that's what you like then keep it. To each their own. Just saying what I would do. It's nice to hear some kids still actaully buy their car.

    don't forget to upgrade your brakes. ....it takes a good bit more to stop 37's than it does to stop 33's

    Honestly if the body lift is welded on and it's sturdy as hell I'd keep it. See if you can fit some 35s and 37s at the shop just to see how it would look and decide what you like
