You shouldn't need hydros... with some slam bags setup correctly you will get plenty of lift no matter how big a rim... Unless the rim comes through the hood... that may be another story... or you have a 6" bodydrop or something crazy...

i can get alot of lift yes i jsut like the idea that i can get alot more lift for better turning abuility since thi will be my shop truck that i am drving daily summer wise and using to tow my show car to the shows.

what i have researched so far is that 22s with decent rubber will jsut fit under teh hood ( barly) and if im layin frame body droped i will need ALOT of lift.
plus there nothign like doing som 3wheeling

Whichever way you go its going to be your control arms that limit you. They will hit the frame before you get the extra lift you could get with juice. I maxed the control arms with re7s in the front. On a side note I will be juiced here soon.

Isn't the ride with hydro's really bad though? I thought the ride was really rough with them. I wouldnt want to have that as a daily, that's why I got bags since they have a softer ride.

if you set the hydrolic system up right With the right coil, and accumulators its the same as bags. Some will say better.

Really? I have never heard that before. I have only heard that the ride sucks. Hmm....I wish i would have known that before, that was the main reason I went with bags.

damn out of all the installs i have done never had any trouble with body roll.
but i have kept the sway bars and shocks, plus its illigal to run no shocks its a pretty 360$ if you get cuaght.

With the proper setup, juice will ride just as nice as bags and possibly better. The only downside is it can get pretty messy with all that oil.
