level kit/tires

hey all,

i have a 2010 ranger sport 4x4...

had a stupid idea to throw 22s on my truck a couple months back.... went wheeling this weekend and changed my mind.

couple questions,

should i do a level kit or torsion keys? dont want anything to serious.
ive heard a leveling kit is the way to go.

also i want to do 31" tires and dont know if i should do 18s or 20s on those 31s. any oppinions?? will the 31s rub also or wil they clear. dimensions on the 31 would be the best??

I would say to just throw a body lift on your truck and go with some 33's.

why would you want 20 inch rims to go wheeling with?

16 or 17s are the largest for a 31. anything else looks stupid and would get destroyed on the trail.
31"s on the stock rims would be fine. 31x9 or 10 is your best bet. after that you'd need a different rim offset.

look in the suspension section for your keys/leveling kit answer. the thread is called 08 prekey something or other. it's stickied at the top. about 8 pages long or so.

search is your friend. welcome to the site.

I'm glad you realized it was stupid. But sometimes you cannot undue what is done. Please go outside right now and put a for sale sign on your Ranger. Then go buy a civic. It is all you deserve. Good day sir.

to level out your front end go buy a set of keys for a 08 or older ranger and put them on then do a little cranking, get some 16 in rims,throw some 31's on,or get a 3in bl and 08 or older keys,6400 shackles and throw some 33's on there with 18's,but whatever you do don't go with 20's

I wouldn't run anything bigger then a 16 inch rim with a 31 inch tire. Idealy, i'd run a 15.

But if I were you, i'd run a BL and some 33's. You won't regret it.

has anyone seen a suspension lift for a 2010???
i cant seem to find one anywhere.
but i think im going to do torsion keys with 31's on 18's

would 33s fit with the keys?
also how wide of a tire could i go with a 31 or 33. im hoping to do a 265 with the 31....

there are no kits available for the 2010s but a kit from 2005 will work. as for tire size, i'm not sure what fits but there are stickies that tell you. i do kno that 33s with keys is gonna rub at turn and anything offroad is limited. you'll tear up fenders real quick.

31's will not rub at all bone stock lol

really though if you want to do any kind of wheeling do a 3" suspension lift. you will clear 33's with small rubbing if any at all

and 18's are still alittle overkill because if you are wheeling you wont have much sidewall for protection

shoot for like some 285/70/17's :)

umm, dude he is 4x4. he has torsion bars. 3 inch suspension lifts are for 2wds. Since he is 2010 he can run 30s, maybe 31s on just a torsion crank.

If he was 07 and below he could run 32s and 33s with just cranking.

Yes I am aware he's 4x4 and torsion lol. Its the same as my 2wd edge. Which you CAN get a 3"spindle lift for. Which last time I checked is a suspension lift not a body lift lol. And I'm clearing 31.2" tires with no adjustment of my t-bars. All I had to do to fix my "rub" was take my mudflaps off.

that's gonna be one crappy ride just for 3 in,and a waste of money when you can turn 2 bolts for free and get that much lift in the front

that kit does seem ok, but like stated, adjust the bolts or even pre-key and shackels would still be saving you $300.
