rocks and a BL'd ranger are not the best of friends. At least you have suspension clearance.

umm, you have bigger tires, bigger tires=more ground clearance. suspension lift does not. the only thing that gives you more ground clearance is tires. suspension lift may give you more belly clearance but thats about it. tires, tires, tires. if youre runnin 34s, then you have .5" less clearance than me. think about that

actually his 34" LTBs are probably taller than your 35" claws..


33" KM2s are as tall as my tires. bald 35" Nittos are as tall as my good ones.

but no break over clearance and my approach angles could be and extra 4 inches up and it wouldn't hurt to much
