Just my opinion, but a 3" lift is a lot for 33" tires.

mmmm i will see what it looks like ... but i'm afraid of going "too much" with 35" :thinking:

A leveling kit or 2" lift is more than enough for 33" tires. Some lifts, like TeraFlex, give more lift that advertised lift. A TF 3" lift often yields about 4". I have no problems with a good lift, but some 3" lifts and 33" tires might make you JK look like a roller skate.

K, point understood :) so we're goin' with 35" :)
any other advice regarding what we SHOULD do on the baby to be ready for the trip ?
