2008 Lift Opinions
hey, fairly new around here, but i must say this site is where its at!! and by "it" i mean info, ideas, everything!!! cant say enough good things about this site!!
anyways had my 08 ranger for almost a year and a half now... love it to death, but ive been itching ever since day one to "spruce" it up a bit! my first drawback was when i found out that the FX4 LIIs were discontinued or whatever you want to call it.. and i was forced to settle for an FX4 with 255 wranglers, which has been eating me ever since day one... there is a lvl2 in my neighborhood with the 31 bfs and i basically drool whenever i see it, just adds that much more to the truck...
to the point!! i am torn between going all out ( first the "PreKey" mod and the bigger blocks in the back to revert back to a "real ranger") along with the superlift and most likely some 33s... now what is basicaly hindering me is #1 obviously the cost... ive priced out the superlift here in canada and one shop wanted like 2300 for the kit + install, plus tires/rims driveshaft etc.. so i figured that route would defiantly tally up pretty quick... also my other concern was losing power pushing 33s?? kinda enjoy the 'getup and go' that i have right now and just dont want to lose out on that with a larger tire... could anyone shed some light on this??
so, to tie me over until i save up some more coin, i figured after doing the "PreKey" mod, and the blocks in the rear...a nice set of 31 MTs would give me a bit more of an agressive look in the mean time... am i crazy to shell out coin for new tires and rims when possibly a year or two
down the road ill be replacing with 33s?
ive had my eyes on the BFG KM2s, because i figured they would be a nice mix between the BF AT and the MT, could anyone shed some light on my situation.. any input would be appreciated!!! truck is a DD and id say maybe 70% spent onroad and 30% offroad.
