Zach, Andy has 35s and 15x10s. I really liked them, and his fit fine. He had 3 inch tbar crank too. If you do it, do it. But 35s fit very comfortably on Andy. It didnt feel like he was tuckin 35s at all, and we hita curb at 15 and no rubbing(he drove over it)

but that is just a BL, its kinda a toss up on whether it will rub or not. body lift does clearance in some places a suspension lift doesnt.

ill see what my plan is this weekend and maybe ill try it

Ok so the whole purpose of removing the body lift was to go with smaller tires and less stress right, so what are you going to accomplish by removing the BL and leaving the 35s? That confused me about the whole deal lol.

Take the body lift off, keep the 35s for a lower center of gravity. i think the only place u'll rub is on the sway bar and possibly on the inner most part of the splash shield/inner fender at full lock. and of course maybe when u flex it out to max on the rear of the wheel well in the back...

This is ultimatly what id like to have on Sarahs ranger...4" lift and 35s...

you modified your hitch for the body lift? if you did why not just get another that isn't modified? it would be 3" lower

the hitch is suppose to stay up at the bottom of the bumper.

Love your truck man but the height would be limiting when used as a truck. Take off the BL and run 33s. It'll still look great.

ive got 33's and 4.56 and yes it hauls butt, especially with the intake/exhaust and tuner.

i can get 18mpg driving nicely but its been as bad as 14-15 when i first got the tuner.

i love ur truck the way it is. its one of my favorite on the site.
for the towing part...ya u do haul a lot of things. I'd say drop you hitch a little and make it more like bills, or mine. a little space isnt going to look that bad and it will perform better. It is you call tho. Im sure u will choose whats best.

I say keep the superlift and get 33's...stick w/ your 4.56's.

You should have a ton of power with those 33's and 4.56's.

Scrap the b/l...IMO, I just like suspension better.

I think properly done (no b/l) and a little smaller is better than b/l and bigger...just my opinion.

I'm with hazzardjohn...I just don't care much for b/l unless your really wanting to stuff more of a tire, but I dunno...

At the same time, i say keep it like it is, you can't even tell you have a b/l.
