    Tire sticking out is from increased track width from the lift (knuckle lifts) you will have to buy spacers to make the rear match up with the front. As far as helping you it really depends on what you wanna spend. Im installing a 5" rxc on my 13 next weekend. its a relatively cheap kit, and probably the only one worth buying from them. If you are looking at the 4" range probably looking at rancho or cst. I think they both say you can run up to 35s. Agree with enkieavalanche on keeping the stockers. I still have no clue what I want to run for wheel so I have 33" coopers going on my stocks to be run until I decide on wheels, and will be used as winter wheels.

    Wheels pushed out past the fenders could be one or a combination of two things. It's either the offset of the wheel or as Squatchy said it's due to the knuckles needed on lifts such as a 6".
