where have you looked??

check out stylincomcepts.com....they have a good selection!!

with the older body style like that eather way I would only level it. Either bring the back down a few inches or the front up a few. If you lift the front...look for bigger tires to get a nice rugged look out of it. Or you can stay with the stock size tires, lower the back and have the warlock or Lil' Red look!!

either way I WANT PICTURES!!!

Hey man i hear what your saying, i was so desperate for cheap tires, my buddy sold me 4 all terrains and i straped them on the ol 2 wheel drive not to mention that they are 33's, the back clearance is fine, the front clears but when you hit bumps it rubs a little bit. Here are some ways you can lower it, put your rear end over the leaf springs in the rear, should lower it about 3-4 inches, you will need to do a bit of welding and modifing, but i have seen it done and it looks pretty good man.
