I've decided that I would like to put a Skyjacker 4 in lift kit on my 94 302 Bronco. I have a question I was wantin to ask some Bronco experts on to get opinions - what size tires/wheels would go best with it, from a handling and looks perspective? I know I should have at least 33s, but what would yall recommend?

Thanks,
Sarah

I run 35s and think they work perfect, however if you arent going to offroad much 33s would be more practical. And with 35s you pretty much have to regear which is around a thousand dollars.

35s, no matter what year it is. You can fit 33s stock, why bother with a lift if you arn't going to bump up tire size?

You are probably going to have to trim the bumper, but it is worth it and the trim can be made to be pretty much invisible if that matters to you.

You are going to have to regear if you live and die by acceleration. 4.56:1 is the proper ratio.

Regearing can range from $500 to $1200 dollars.

Ignore the guy's comment above about skipping first gear, that's the opposite of whats going to happen. Skipping 1st with 35s and 3.55 gears is sucide. Skipping OD is more like it. Almost every hill is going to require dropping out of OD.

You will be damn lucky to see 13 MPG ever again after the lift and increase in tire size. 10 MPG will be your average if you drive like the average person.

Be sure and buy the Class II lift, you are just asking to tweak the frame with cheapy drop mounts.
