Re: lifting the 05 grand questions?

I've got the rr 2.25 with bilsteins. My 265/70/17 long trails fit great without spacers. Towing my pop-up with my 3.7 is easy work too. Much better looking than stock!

Re: New tires

Yeah, those are the ones I'm looking to get. If I go with the bigger tires will my traction control system be messed up, or the computer since its programmed for smaller tires with more revs?
