    Looking to get a Lift and tires for my truck but I'm having trouble picking one out. It will be a daily driver but also using it for smaller off-roading. I was looking for a 3.5"-4.5" lift with either 31s or 33s. Just figured would rather get others opinions before buying them.

    4.5 inch lift with 31s????o_O That would look really goofy OP. Minimum tire size I would look at on a 4 inch lift is 33s and go up from there.
    I’m on a 2 1/2 inch all the way around lift with 32s and it could use 33s (whether skinny or fat). So 31s on a 4 inch lift. No go...my humble opinion anyway.

    Gotcha. So with anything like a 4" lift you will need to do a drop bracket kit. Meaning that your front cross member (part of the frame) will need to be cut to allow the front differential to be lowered and keep the CV axle geometry good. Then the kit will have a bracket to weld back to your frame.

    From your needs blocks are probably fine. As long as you don't plan to do high speed off roading or significant flexing on difficult trails.

    You will likely rub with 33's. You probably need to do a cab mount chop. Lots of information with quick internet search. With 31s or 32s you'll won't rub and won't need to anything in the wheel well.
