Default Px Lift

I'm thinking about purchasing the XLT, but one thing the dealer said to me was that I won't be able to lift it due to the Rollover mitigation feature. Anyone else heard that?

Maybe give Dobinson suspension a ring. They have lift kits for them already.

I have a PJ Ranger with Sunraysia rims and 31.5 BFG muddies.
Will these rims fit the PX XLT which I have coming in the next couple of weeks?

Hey T2222 how did you go with your trial of the BFG's?

Anyone else fitted this size? Just wondering how they go when you get a little flex.

To my and the tyre fitters amazement they are a really good fit and dont look to large on the vehicle. There is still plenty of clearance everywhere. They dont rub anything.
Nearly 33 inch Tyres with no lift is pretty cool in my book.
Any more pics?

I'm also on the Goldie and get my xlt on a week on Monday.

Here are some more pictures of my truck with 285-70-17 Tyres.
The pictures have Snake Exteneded Shackels, 40mm Dobinson springs and Snake Strut spacer.
I have since taken out the Strut spacers. As the Spacer and spring lifted the front over 100mm
I also have on order Dobinson rear springs and shocks.
I have had the strut spacer machined down
the front springs have sttled down a bit now and with the new strut spacer should give me a 3 inch lift allround.

There is no problem with this size tyre at all. The tyre fits the car perfect with no ill handling.

I also have bought some 25mm wheel spacers to play around with.
With these wheel spacers on the tyres still fit within the guards no scrubbing or ill effects.
The car looks way better with the spacers on.

In that photo I had standard shocks.
I was just experimenting with different options.
I have since replaced the shocks with Dobinson units.
