Mof I did a 2" bodylift,
The fuel filler rubber hose clamps have to be loosened so the hose will move, then re-clamp after lifting.
The brake line bracket on the right front guard (RHD) under the bonnet has to be moved (drill new holes and re-mount).
The steering column i think is on a spline so loosening the clamp on it and extending will fix that, authough unbolt between column and steering box while lifting, extend and rebolt after. I made a new rubber joiner between box and column that was thicker than oem to make up for some of the distance change. Watch the cooling fan on the radiator shroud.
Take the gear lever out of the top of the gearbox and bend it back a bit near the bottom so it wont hit the dash in 1st, 3rd and 5th.
Im pretty sure that was all that was needed.

BUT while youre at it, lift the transfer case 2" as well, now it will be nicely tucked up inside the chassis rails and not sticking out to get hit.
I also lifted the radiator 2" so it was back to where it used to be compared to the body, but dont remember why... maybe because the fan would hit the shroud? I cant remember if I had the electric fan in at that time or not.
If you want me to explain how I lifted my transfer case just ask. (cost about $10)

You will get more answers starting your own thread...

With that said:
Going from stock 215's (27.7") to 235's (28.9") will change your speedo reading but it won't really make enough change to warrant a gear change for the highway.

Yumadavis mszuki -

Those identify the load range ratings of the tire C E etc ... I actually got the 31 x 10.5 Wardens the BFG AT knock offs. work great, good bite, no wear after 2k.

Rouko - you lose some gearing but with the carb and exhaust hopefully it'll even out... I lost alot with the 31's. 5th gear is putter gear now, I max out at around 55. Course my #3 cylinder ain't all that healthy
