spring over axle would be best bang for your buck. I did the SOA and a little bit bigger shackles and i'm running 35's no problem. You'll need a slip yoke eliminator and new speedo gear, and probably re-gear your diffs, though.....

I have a 4in Ruff Country lift that was $450 and 2in shackles that were about $50. I'm running 33x13.50 Nitto Mud Grapplers.

This.

As far as tires, that depends on what you plan on doing with it? Mud, rocks, sand, all terrain, snow?

My fav tire right now are the Goodyear Duratracs. I have them on my Tacoma and will be getting them for Flo this week.

i plan on using them on the road, mudding, and trail riding. I was looking at the TSL Thornbird tires and was wondering if those would be good or not.

Those might be one of the worst radial tires marketed to the offroad world on the market today.. I have never in 5 years of offroading and offroad forums heard one person who liked them on or off road.. Those tires are a joke and a total waste of money

Those look pretty aggressive. Read a few reviews on other sites, and they seem to be average. Not very good in mud.
