3" body and a 2" spacer ?

Hey thinking about this on my 93 ranger extra cab. What do you guys think.

This guy did the same thing and I think it looks great.

What size tires are those he is running? 32" ?
What about the rim width? 8"?

Let me know what you think.

I'm on a budget for awhile, so no list in the near future except the body/spacer lift.

Its either 31s or 32s with probably a 8" width. I think I spacer and body lift would look great on your truck.

What tire size would you recomend? I dont want the tire to look to big for the lift and or too small for the lift.

Your saying run the lift coils instead of the spacers? Or instead of the body lift and spacers?

Instead of spacers, the ride will be much better.

I see. I'll keep that in mind. I'm actaully on a budget build up right now, so I'll have to see what it is at that time.

What do you guys think about this?

I use the stock rims with 32" tires and a billet 2" wheel spacer to bring them out a little , so they dont look like pizza cutters?

If I were you, id wait till i had the cash to do the coils... I had a set of the plastic/rubber or whatever you wanna call em spacers trying to be cheap, then i noticed after a few months the front started to sag badly...I checked and BOTH spacers had developed a HUGE crack and almost split in half. Needless to say i ordered a set of skyjacker coils and i couldnt be happier.

Here's my 1994 with 3"bl and 2" SJ coils:

Do you think it would look good until I get new tires with a 2" coil lift in the front?

I have 30" BFG A/T's on stockers. I was going to add a wheel spacer kit to the front axles to bring out the rims a little.

I want them for the looks basically. That way i dont have to buy new rims....

If you asking if it would look fine with just the leveling coils and the 30s, then yea. I ran like that for a few months an it was fine. I ran em till they needed to be replaced so i upgraded to 31s then to 33s after the body lift.

As far as wheel spacers go i guess it just depends on the size spacer you plan on running(ive never ran em). But why do you want to run them just up front? The front tires already stick out more than the rear due to the way the truck is shaped...

I'll probably end up running a set of 4 just to make the truck look better. I was thinking about the prerunner style and just running them up front to make the appearence of wider arms, but I like the 4x4 look.

Well the coils will be difff for your truck since you have an ex cab, check out summit for the sj coil for your truck. As far as shocks im still runnin stock lengths but rancho makes extended ones, and the alignment cams needed depend on how the coils affect ur truck

So I dont have to buy new shocks right away? I'v been debating on the springs due to the shocks. I am mostly going to be driving this to work and back (street driving) and was wondering if I should get new shocks right away.
