    So what lift/tire size is everyone running? Post up how much lift (and other mods) to make your tire of choice fit. Lets see what everyone's running.

    I'm running 285 75 Geolandar MTs with light/med OME lift and stiff OME shocks. I'm sticking with that until I can afford to dump a bunch into lower gears, etc., especially while the rig is my wife's daily ride.

    OME 851/860s with N73/N74E shocks & Bridgestone Dueler A/T REVO 285/75s - utterly transformed the vehicle (for the better).

    The 40 is running stock 80 springs with BFG 35x12.5 disproving the myth that you can't run 35s with stock springs. You just have to put them on an entirely different vehicle. :D

    ok a does of reality. rusty nasty aftermarket shocks. stock springs (I guess). definite sag in front from the arb bull bar. bfg at 265/70/16's. I have lift envy but the darn birfield repack killed my budget for a while.

    2.5" OME lift, don't know the shock #s, but they must be kind of old because even Christo didn't know the #s---but they are OME, and it doesn't sag with the ARB bullbar, sliders, and Slee rear bumper/tire carrier, which I think says something good about OME.

    Still with stock-size Michelins.  Upgrading to BFG ATs, 285/75/16 or maybe 295/75/16 within the next three years....

    OME Heavy/Heavy with matching shocks, no caster correction bushings. 285 75R 16 BFG MT KO's. When you do buy your lift I would recommend going to a place that deals in cruisers, not Fly-N-Hi. They can lift a Ford, Chevy, Dodge or Jeep but have trouble with the Cruiser. A good hint that you should run would be when you ask about a lift and the response is "yea, we sold one of those once...I think."
