Be unique and don't lift the cab, you know you want too. But seriously, it's gonna look good. Gonna raise exhaust too?

It probably wouldn't look too bad, but raising will look so much cleaner.

haha you will definitely get more looks once its lifted, I've already had 2 comments from people when I park they walk over to my truck and say how nice it is, pretty funny, they ask me questions and what not.

Sweet.

And if you don't mind, can you send a mechanic out to fix my Ranger too? Mind picking up the bill as well?

Yeah exactly lol i see trucks lifted around here sometimes, just not rangers, only seen one actually and it's fairly close to me, black stepie lifted on 33's I think all blacked out, black wheels looks nice.. I like them because there unique! even though there are a million rangers around here, no one mods them! Definitely a attention grabber when all said and done lol.. I need to keep modding... it's an addiction now

Do it, If you get rid of the spare tire it looks horable. Im planing on running mine on the side.

LOL....When I had my wheels mounted up to my 35's, the guy at the tire store was like 'what it's goin on?'. I was like 'that ranger right there'. He then said 'those aren't going to fit!'. I was like 'ever heard of lift kits?'. /end story.



HAHEHE....I was trying to get Marie to be completely unique and totally rock the sideways bed AND sideways cab!!

To translate he means lift the right side of the cab and the left side of the bed or vice-versa....
