Icon4 big important question!!!

I'm lookin to bag my ranger in the very near future. I am about to invest im some adaptors and cadillac rims for my truck. The only thing is that i will need wider fenders in the front. I think i have the back covered im going with a step-side bed, so i should have no problems there. I am wandering if 4x4 ranger fenders are wider than mine. If you have any idea if they are or an idea on how to make them tuck please let me know.

replied to your PM. also do a search, there was a discussion about mazda vs. ranger fenders on here someplace as well.

they are not a whole lot wider, and you will need to address the area around the corner lights if you want a perfect fit.

WHy do you want cadillac rims?? you going with the escalades or something?? I ask this because people that usually run those on rangers end up going with custom arms and suck in the front suspension in order to tuck w/ stock fenders.
