Haha...."cost to how good it looks ratio"...i like it..lol. Ya i'll keep this updated....I just ordered my 33 x 12.5 r15's BFG all terrains today. I'm going to order my rims and bl in the next week or so. For rims i'm going with a 15 x 10 and a 3.75 offset. Hopefully that will stick out far enough.

Im not sure how many bolts the 2010's have. My lift is at home which is a for a 2010. I would check to see how many bolts there are but im in Alberta working. Hopefully I can get a trip home soon to do the lift, then I'll let ya know.

Well its been a while since I updated this, life has been busy(new house, job, little things like that..lol) But I have the Ranger lifted with tires and rims on. I was going to go with bfgs but I got screwed over by a company and I went with goodyear mtr tires...awesome offroad but not as quite as my brothers bfgs. Lift went in good but the shifter console dosent fit properly even with the 3in extension. Some trimming is required I guess. Here are some pics. I will try and get some nice pics. Next jobby is gears...4.56. and mabey a 15L cat motor.lol.

they still make the old MT/R's ?
raise the hitch and good to go! doesnt seem like 3" lift to me, but thats probably because 08+ were lower from factory.

no they dont make the old mtr tires anymore. some guy had them and never used them so I bought em. Its a 3in lift and I even cranked the torsion bars alittle. The 08+ rangers are like 2in lower. Gotta get that hitch done too, my brother is a welder so Ill just sit back and watch the pro.lol.

Here are some more pictures. Stupid Newfoundland weather sucks. We got good beer and pretty women but the weather sure is garbage. Cant get a deacent day to go wheelin' and take some nice pics. Anywho..I already have close to 1500kms on the truck(I dont stop..lol) and everything is working great. Even with the 3.73's my mileage is not any worse. The only thing I find is 1st gear is too fast for wheelin'... almost needed to shift to 4wd low just to slow her down a bit. Im plannin on either 4:10s or 4:56 gears. Anybody with opinions? I do a fair bit of highway driving and I sometimes tow a 17ft enclosed trailer.

I am running A 2008 sport 4X4 with 33's and 4.10's. I tow a decent amount and do some wheeling. My gear choice fits my needs perfectly. I had 35's with 4.10's and couldn't tow what i wanted to.

You should do the pre-key mod or after market keys and just be easy on how far you crank them. The factory keys that came with your and my truck suck lol. Oh and aal for the back.

Every time I have problems with mine, I always go to this site. Their product is reasonable at the same time they have a good costumer service. I can always ask them what I need and also if they don't it, they can refer me to a site who has it. It might worth a try.
