4" Lift + 31's?

Would a 4" lift with 31's look goofy?

I want the 4" lift lift cause I plan on getting 33's at a later date. As it stands right now I have 31's but I'm planning on getting the 4" Zone lift...Think it'll look goofy?

Of course it will look goofy, that's way to much lift for those little bitty tires

Agree with the above. They will look tiny.

dude, save your money and do them both at the same time. What's the hurry? If you don't have bigger tires, you don't need a lift for anything yet.

Or do what I'm doing, 3" lift while on 31s then once you go 33s do a 1" bl if you need/want it. Then you can tummy tuck later, have a lower center of gravity and you can hold off on the sye with the 3" until you tummy tuck

What G-Pur said...that's my plan. I'm buying a Zone 4.25" combo lift (3" suspension, 1.25" body), new wheels, new tires, and rock sliders.

Just gonna buy one component at a time and store it until I have everything and the money to pay my buddy to install it all and then I'm gonna have him do everything at once.

Also...look at the first couple pics...that's 31's and a 4" skyjacker lift. Doesn't look as goofy as I pictured.

Would look even better with different tires (ie BFG or something more aggressive)

Be sure to post how you guys like zone! I was looking into getting a BDS kit but I'm leaning towards 3" AEV coils with OME shocks

I think it's a 5" minimum lift in order to fit 35's...but I could be mistaken on that. If I'm correct, then a 4" Zone lift with a 1" BL will fit 35's.

That's without modifying your fenders mind you... if you get tube fenders or MCE flat fenders, you could probably squeeze them in with 3-5" of lift, but no idea what that minimum is.

probably. go for a 1 1/4" body lift and you should be fine, even after spring sagging.

I just saw that, I don't think it looks that goofy, I'm running the Hankook Dynapro MT 31x10.50

Body lift won't affect your driveline so if you don't need an sye before you won't need one after from what I understand
