I had 31x10.5x15's on my stock height 98 2wd Regular cab, without any problem at all. Now... 32's would definitely be pushing it.

do a body lift, cheap and not too bad with a buddy or two, or lift blocks in the rear and coil spring spacers up front if your coil sprung.

if you tear out the inner fender wells, the wireing is vulnerable to rubbing on the tires=huge PITA. in the works of trying to rewire my buddys s-10 b/c the guys before him thought it'd be a good idea to remove the fender well since the tire was rubbing on it (lowered truck) fun trying to put it back together.

pretty much if you want bigger tires and not have problems later on get a body lift and do it right. when you take cheap short cuts on you daily driver its not a good thing. just save a little money its worth it

i was talking to my friends dad, about doing a body lift, and he said that doing a suspension lift is a lot better, but more expensive, VS. doing a body lift. whats the difference?

and for the body lift, for the bed, he said that he had friends take the bed off, and put hockey pucks in to act as a spacer, how good will this hold up?

i trust him on this cause hes a full blown master mechanic... so im thinking of doing the hockey puck idea.

i've heard hockey pucks dry rot too quick. suspension would be the best thing to do. If you don't do that at least get a real body lift

just buy a $200 BL and be done with it. Comes with spacers for the bed, also comes with supports for the bed to so it has the same strength as before. This should be able to net you a good gap for the tires and take care of any rubbing issues.

use those plastic boat roller things. thats what my dad used to do on all his full size trucks. im sure it will work for a ranger. you just then need longer bolts.
