Why lift it if you're not going to put bigger tires on? I'm pretty sure a B2 will fit 31's without much lift at all. Going up 5" will only make it taller and less stable. You could probably fit them without any lift if you trimmed the fenders a bit or pounded out the fender seams etc

You're best to do minimal mods now and learn to wheel it with the 31s, then save up and a get a better lift and tires down the road.

Low is good. Unless you're just going for the poser look.

save the money from the lift and put it towards a locker of some sort.

biggest most aggressive tires mean shit if ya cannot turn them.

a set of 31 bfg at's, with a locker will out wheel 33, 35, even bigger size boggers on an open dif truck.

as far as power of the truck, i am not sure about them.

when my bronco 2 was stock, running 29" tires, it had eanough power, but once i lifted it, even with 5.13 gears, it just didnt have the power i was looking for(it would have worked, but it didnt have the low range i wanted either)

ask FishBC, i think he has the 2.8, on 31's, open diffs, and he does anywhere.
