Make sure your original lugs are cut shorter (as to not stick past the adapter), make sure they are torqued to spec and you should be fine. Quite a few people run them just need to check the torque occasionally IMO.

The wider you get the harder it is on balljoints and wheel bearings. So remember that.

I personally wouldnt go any more than 2"

I want to put 2" spacers on my F350 so I would imagine spacers would be fine on a ranger. A lot of guys run 2" on 3/4 and 1tons.
