Thanks Kevin.My Ranger is not yet lifted.Although I plan to in January.The only front lift I have found for my 11 Ranger is a 2.25" lift.Do you think this will clear 32"s or should I go with 31"s?I would like to find a lift that provides a full 3" of lift(in front) but can't seem to find one.

what you found is probably a spindle lift, and i say do it with 31s, 32s if you plan to do more lift later, like a body lift.

The only type of life you can do Connel is a coil spring spacer lift or a body lift. You can't do lift spindles because 2010-2011 Rangers come with traction control in the front and the aftermarket spindles are not compatible with it.

Yeah, the only place I've found coilspring spacers(2") and the 2'' blocks is Mcbay Performance.It's a 3" lift but I don't like the way the example looked.It was much higher in the rear and it didn't look like much clearance for the 31x10.5x15s (in front).I also found the 3"body lift,but I don't want to have to do both.For now I'm getting some BlackRock Type 8 Series wheels.I figure if I wanna do a double lift later and I can put some 32' or 33" tires on those wheels.

I left the group because my jeep doesn't quite fit in with the 2wd ranger category anymore haha. but I like to use 2wd offroad more than 4wd, because its more fun and you have to choose your lines more wisely. but then again, when 2wd fails, I just throw it in 4wd

Joined. No lift or offroad tires but my truck spent the last 2 years and 62,000 on a very rual mail route so it has spent more time off pavement then most 4x4 will ever see... does that qualify?

32's and 3" spindle lift is IMO perfect. 33's if you want to double lift
