31 inch tires, and a spring over lift.
gears out of a sidekick + a locker and you are set.

if you do get one, seriously consider gettinsome toyota axles, they're a bunch tougher then sami shit.

if you want some power for the old hamster under the hood, i've got a 1.6 16v engine, and harness + computer

take out the axels, buy or make some new spring perches, weld them on the top of hte axel houseing throw on sum new u bolts and u got ur self a spring over, its pretty straigh forward.
u might have to go and buy a new draglink or u could make one yourself if u had the time...

A good Spring Over Lift, installed professionally at a shop will run anywhere from $500.00 to $1000.00 depending on how many "extras" you get[3]

Yup, you could get one with a steering setup for close to within that $$$

Steering, shock type, shakles, drive shaft spacers, brake lines, are all things that can be altered when get a shop to do work on your rig...

It all depends. It seems it all runs on a scale. The more you wheel it, the more you'll want to do to it, and so on and so forth. Just remember, the more you do to it to make more off-road capable (lockers,etc.), the less on road drivabilty you'll get.

If it's a daily driver, 31s/32s should be good, but stay radial and not bias-ply. With those sized in mind, a gear reduction would be nice. 4:1 t-cases are getting cheaper these days cuz of the exchange. Look on Spidetrax.com or petroworks.com for prices. This will allow you to run 31/32" tires on the srteet a little easier as well as a nice reduction in low range.
