u can fit 33s now. wut do you mean can you spin? you mean on pavement or just be able to turn? the 3.9 is pretty torqy so it should spin a decent sized tire.
oh and welcome to the site

If you got that suspension lift you could run 37"-40" but thats way to big for IFS!

but 3" bl and torsion bar crank you could run 35"s on a 4x4

but with just a 3" bl 33"s are good anything bigger youll be "dogging" that v6 down

technically you can run 35s now but you have to take you front bumper mounts and notch the mount holes so you can slide the bumper forward 1/2 inch. doing this will also allow you to run 33s with no lift. height isnt our problem its how clost the bumper is to the tire.

33x12.5 tires will go on without any trimming with a 3" BL and a torsion bar crank although your V6 is gonna be working to keep em rolling.

you will def want gears to run those tires or else it's going to be dogging. i would go no less than 4.56's for those large tires.

^^ you think i would need gears for the 33s or 35s?
how much do they cost (canadian) and will the ears still be good for street driving?
and if i got the 4.56s what would be the biggest tires you would run 35s or 37s?

you should have those gears for 33s. 35s maybe but that engine just doesnt have the power to turn huge tires. and your going to lose fuel mileage like you wouldnt believe. prolly be 7mpg give or take
