Welcome to the board. :thumb:

How much lift are you thinking of? The shaclke flip in the rear works great and gets you about 4" of lift. Any front spring will do but it depends on what you are going to do with the rig.

The tires will depend on what you are planning on doing. If its mud with not much street driving, go with the boggers. Anything else, go with the swampers. I've tried them all and the swampers are a better all around tire.

You'll have to do a huge amount of trimming to fit 38" tires on a 4" lift. It can be done though. You might want to chase it with a body lift to help the firewall clearance.

Look at AJs toy album the most recent pics will be of a 4" lift with 38s. Alot of people are using the shackle flip. It works well. You might ask some of the guys about using rear springs on the front this will net you 4" of lift and a smoother ride I know Sandmans uses this and AJ toy will be rolling in a couple of months. That also moves the front axle forward quite a bit this helps alot with the tire clearance. :rotfl: :rotfl:

The other thing about mud is you might think about going as big as you can afford if you have the axles to take it. If you have the guts to cut and some welding capabilty I am truly convinved you could run 44s with 4" of lift and only limit travel a little bit. Build it the way you want to the first time and then you won't have to start over again good luck building it man keep us updated :rotfl: :rotfl:
