i guess I have the wrong stickers.. i cant even get 13 haha

as i said, i'll say it again.
don't get big macho meaty tires if your looking to get good fuel mileage.. hell a ranger is the wrong vehicle to own if you want good fuel mileage

creative, reminds me of my buddy get 0 mpg in his accord. he went in his house after he got home and meant to come back out and shut the car off and get his stuff out.... but instead he fell asleep and woke up to a dead battery and an empty tank of gas lol

i think im gonna stick with 33 and 8 inches of lift. i like the look of my truck now and i dont rub a bit so 3 more inches and some 33s should be good. if anyone remembers yuke175's truck thats the look i want to go for
