Thanks. Should I have any problems running some 32's with an auto tranny? I dont want to put to much strain on anything. I am mainly doing the 3" BL and tires for when I move back to PA and need to have some bigger better gripping tires in the snow. And there are a ton of hills.

Sweet. I have one more question. How does everyone lift the cab during the body lift process?

That I don't know. I personally wouldn't do a body lift on my truck.

I've driven an older 89 ranger with a 3" bl for a while. What is the reason some are so against a bl? I like the look of being able to see the frame. The gaps in the bed I dont really care about either. I havent offroaded alot with it though. What are the main concerns?

I believe it is mostly that people dont want to see the frame. There are no safety concerns that I am aware of, except for a higher center of gravity.

if you have 2 or 3 scissor jacks and a buddy or 2 you can lift the cab up fairly easy
