  4. Without being a slug and murdering your accel, I wouldn't go above 30s or 31s max. But you can run the 33s if you feel like taking off like a snail.

    I ran 33" superswampers with 3.27s and a 4.0L for 6 months. It was an absolute dog.

    While Im thinking about it, You might as well grab an explorer 8.8 with disc brakes (you can find them anywhere with 4.10s and a L/S). You'll have close to $500 in it by the time your done though. DEFINITELY worth it!

    Axle: $250
    Hardware (spring seats, u-bolts, shock brackets, gear oil, etc.): $150
    Welding- $100 (Caster set at 6 degrees stock, 45 degrees for shock brackets)
    Brakes (INCLUDING an explorer master cyl)- $200-250
    L/S clutch pack: $100

    I would say max would be 32's for your truck but I think you will be pushing it
