So you said lift I think bigger tire is the better solution for your specific needs. Just remember guys go lift for larger diameter tires generally speaking. Cause the tire is what gets you away from the ground (ground clearance). I mean obviously a full suspension build with long travel a-arms etc etc will yield more GC but also with the intentions of adding bigger meats!!!! Just to clarify why I suggest 28" tires. Ok enough of me and my !!!

Like Mr. Bob stated the 4+3 rims will clear any diameter 9" wide fronts. You can go as wide as 12" on the rear. He also raises a good point about clutching!!! I believe it's a good idea at any big wheel kit 26" and greater. I also know that with the proper gear selection (L)ow you can run up to 28" tires that are obviously not 40+++ pounds a piece.

So bottom line your rig your $$$ your choice!!!! And if going kind of middle of the road is what you feel comfortable with then by all means!!! You have done your homework and your plan is a good one!!! Hey at the end of the day adding a big wheel kit is the best investment anyone can make to their wheeler IMO!!!
