This is my first Ford to own. I have a 2000 Ranger XLT Sport step side, 3.0 flex, extended cab. I bought it at about 85K miles and in rather bad shape. I needed a second truck to run telecom service in. I've replaced the leaf springs, and shocks in order to raise up the rear end a bit but it did not seem to help much. I also just had the tranny rebuilt as it was slipping pretty badly at about 100K miles. I'm not sure of the OEM tire size on the truck though. When I go to tires.com, it tell me I should have 14" tires but there are 15" tires on the truck with stock ford wheels. The current tire size is 235/75/15. Do I have the correct tire size? The truck is still a bit squatty in the rear so how can I correct that problem? The truck also has an aluminum camper on it.
I would also like to lift the entire truck a little. Could I do it with tires alone, do I need a lift kit, or can shocks do the trick? I will get a photo of the little thing when I clean it up and post it as my AVATAR. Any help, ideas, suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
