You can run 35s with just a BL. 33s will look and perform great!

you can easily run that. you can run 33's with just a t-bar crank and some minor valance trimming.

I highly would never recommend 35's and just a body lift.. ever...


yes 33x12.5x15 is the best tire combo for that amount of lift.

pretty much its the best size tire all around on a ranger. smaller is just well smaller and bigger SLA trucks tend to hate anything above a 33's on ball joints and tie rods

I know a couple people that have ran it with no problems, as long as you keep it on the street it'll be fine.

Why the hell would you install a body lift and 35's to keep on the street?

Because you can? Same reason you see all these 250s with 10" lift kits and 40s that have never touched dirt.

Those guys are annoying. Ask them to go mudding and they look at you like you just called their mother a c*nt.

ask his ball joints how they feel on the matter..

just because he hasnt yet doesnt mean it wont fail. watched it happen to many times over the years on the ranger sites to want to go threw them that fast
