Hi guys, just signed up.
I have a 1993 PZJ77(LWB, leaf springs all round, 3.5 diesel) and I am looking at giving it a lift and getting some rims and tyres for it so looking for recommendations. Putting an ARB winch bar and probably a Superwinch on the front. Application is for on road and farm type use (we pickup and deliver ride on mowers etc... on a towed trailer). Also floods a bit where we live so sometimes have to drive through flood waters although only about 1 foot deep (may get a snorkel too although not totally necessary?).
Need help on deciding....

[a] What brand of lift kit eg. OME, Tough Dog etc... or can you put together your own bits e.g. monroe shocks etc...?

How high to do suspension lift, was thinking 2"?

[c] What size rims(steel the way to go?), what size tyres and what offset (looking at big as I can without having to extend the guards or rubbing in places[or do you just chop to make room?)...perhaps 32-33" max?)
