You do not want iroks if your not going to offroad much, they wear very fast, ride worse than a normal mud terrain, and rain performance will be subpar.... but if you really want them, it your money.

Good luck with that swap... Ranger engine compartments are pretty cramped, you'd be better off going with a windsor style swap. The windsor is a lot smaller than a modular motor.
