33" tires should fit after the body kit is installed, but for width I would go with 10.50's or 12.50's. If ur not worried about mileage, the 12.50's are better. I'm runnin a 3" body lift with 31X10.50's and there's plenty of clearance for larger tires.

Don't all Rangers come with an electric starter? I bet that thing is a pain in the **** to pull start.

If you have the 5speed, you will need the shifter extension. If it's auto, don't worry about it.

I'm guessing you meant remote stater. Your ranger should already have an electric starter. 5speed- no can do
Auto- whatever brand you want. Do some research.

If you're gonna get a tool box, I suggest not getting a low profile one, if you plan on packing it full of stuff. Get a deep full body one. I absolutely hate my low profile one.

Trust me, you'll be a lot happier if you got a bigger box, even if you don't completely fill it up.

I work construction, and got the box thinking it would be great. All my tools have been packed in the cab with the box pretty much empty because it's so useless. Can't even fit all my more important stuff in there without having something left out.

With the Dodge, I got the deep contractors series, and I can fit every tool I have except my chop saw in it. I know, full size vs. compact, but still, even if I could carry just the basic tools I use at work, I would be happy with mine.

All sounds good. I wish I could find a used tool box around here for my truck. Ya, if you have the manual you need the extension for the gear shift. You can put a remote starter on one but you have to by-pass the clutch switch thing.

I stuff mine full of stuff, it can hold a lot depending on how you organize it. It all depends on what your carrying though, I just hate how the big boxes block the window.

I don't mean to jack the thread, but anyone know where I can find a toolbox for a stepside? I never had much luck when I looked.

Also, I think you'd be happier with 33x12.50s instead of 33x10.50s for your tires. Just my $0.02.
