    Got my lift kit in yesterday!! Its a Daystar 2.5" + 1" body lift. Didnt get around to the body lift yet. I think i read somewhere of a bodylift eliminator that closes up the gaps between the bed and frame? ive never heard of it before but does anyone have a link?

    Also, now im deciding on tires, i want to go With a 32", but my brother wants me to put a 33" on. Will there be a huge difference between the two? it only has the 2.7L/auto, not sure of the gearing but im sure someone can help me out there =P

    One more question, will i be able to run the new tires on my stock rims? without rubbing?

    i dont plan on off roading it, i have another rig for that.

    thanks guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! heres some pics:

    The eliminator you're talking about is called a gap guard. They sell them on Wheelers', or you can make your own. Google it, there's a ton of threads about the stuff you can use.

    the gap guards on wheelers are for second gens, 4wdparts carries them for 1st gens IIRC, its pretty easy to make your own to. any rubber hose supply store would carry it.

    you could most likely fit 33's on it especially once the bodylift is installed. your going to get pretty hurtin mpg with them though since you have the 2.7L. to figure out your gear ratio youll need to look on your driverside door jam, on the sticker thats there look in the bottom right corner theyll be 4 digits like B03A or something like that. tell us what they are and we can tell you what gears you got.
