Trying to get an idea on how much lift and tire size I want.

Please post pictures of your J10 with a lift. Can you include how much lift, tire size, and which lift kiit you are using. I'm just trying to decide how high I want to go. Who had done a body lift too. Thank you.

Looks aren't everything. What are your plans for the truck? Are you going to daily drive it? Take it on forest roads? Do some serious wheeling or maybe some rock crawling?

Nothing serious. I want a daily that can work on some really light trails.

Here’s my 70 with 33x12.50-15’s and no lift. Working on a custom 2-1/2” lift that I hope to be done with in a couple of weeks. I’ve yet to have the tires rub but it needs more ground clearance.

I like that tire size. I think I am going to go 33s with a 3 inch lift. Look forward to seeing what yours looks like with the lift.
