Hey mate, there 245/75 16inch... whice is just short of a 31. Thats the biggest you would want togo standard height. I have a 2inch body lift and could probally fit a 33inch tyre, but the 2liter struggles enough as it is.

These blokes do some nice lift kits out of the states... if you wanna look at abit more height

Hey guys got my frontera running again after blowing the engine up, decided to keep it because I love it so much so i did a few more mods to it. I put a new bar on it got a ARB bar some IPF 900 lights, fitted a rear locker and compressor, fitted the ARB diff cover and changed the aerial. Went on a trip to Robe to run the engine in and loved it. So here is a pic of it now tell me what you think.

Don't mind the gap between the ARB and the body, that's the first thing on my list to do when i get home to the states.

Haha, thanks man. Im slowly learning my way around this site, i'll look into posting some pictures in the shed when i get a chance. The internet is slow over here so it takes a while for the forum pages to load.

As far as the rear lift goes, all i did was install some 3" OME coils with Calmini shocks. I didn't have any problems with the arms around the gas tank. But i did have to remove the left one to get the axle to drop down far enough for the coils to pop out.

I have the 3.2L Gas V6, the mileage isn't too bad considering the added weight from the ARB and my full size spare on the back. I'd say it's between 16-19mpg depending on how i drive. On the highway it's been getting pretty close to 21mpg. The snorkel has helped alot.

I did the body lift back in June of '09 right before we deployed over here, wasn't too bad of a job. Got it done in right at 5 hours and i was by myself. As far as hoses and lines, all i had to extend was my steering shaft. You have to weld in a 1" extension to the shaft right before it squares off at the end. The fuel line extended fine, all you have to do there is remove the bolt that holds the line to the frame. With the radiator, some choose to relocate it 3" lower, it's not necessary with our Rodeos/Fronteras, you can let it raise with the body that's what i did and still haven't had any problems. Here are the few pics i have of the body lift install.

If you look close you can see the "grayish" extension in the shaft.
