Just remember..............a t-bar crank is free!!

To stuff that extra 1" of larger more expensive tire under the Ranger, you'll also need to shell out some cash for a BL.

You can do a t-bar crank, get your 32's and keep the money you saved in the bank for a rainy day. You'll need some cash to buy guns and ammo for when the zombies attack.

Body lift, t-bar crank and 33's all the way. Looks good, clean and it's affordable and functional.

Body lift, 33s and leave the torsion bars alone = more functional. I hate the ride with cranked bars. With proper offset the 33s won't rub a bit with a body lift anyway.

33s and IMHO use an 8” wide rim.

What gear are you running ?
4.10s, 33s will just work, 3.73 w/33s the truck will be working moving them along so 32 might be better.
3” body lift is nice but I am not a fan of the BL but too much money to lift with a kit for most.
if somewhere down the road you go with a Lift Kit then 35s will fit.

Either way will look good, your call, your truck.
