    dont know of a legitimate 2" IFS lift. now if you mean different keys up front and blocks? A waste and bad idea IMO. This on your 99?

    On the newer chevys if you move the front bumper forward(can be done pretty easy) you can fit some pretty good sized tires.

    How big a tires do you want?

    285 is how many inches of tire, like 30 inch tires?

    A 285/75R16 is about the size of a 33" tire.

    Gmgbo,
    They should be the 265 tire. That is what I always run and it seemed to be just about the same as the 31's I also ran before.
