you can get 2 inches out of the front no major issue. if you go to an OTK steering and a good track bar you can push 2.5 maybe 3. beyond that you need new coil buckets or air shocks/coil overs.

though if your looking for more wheel base pull your gas tank then take your leafs and spin them 180* instant 4 in rear stretch.get you near that 105-107 mark if your planning on 37s.

to do it right?

coil bucket relocation, trac bar mount relocation, shock hoop, and either a reversed steering box or remounted steering box.
