What do i do????????????

Well I have owned the ranger for a year as of September 23rd, it will be THE FIRST TIME IVE EVER KEPT A VEHICLE FOR A YEAR OR MORE.(ive had almost 15 vehicles in 9 years). We are planning a party and for keeping it a year, the wife is secretly going to have it "modded" for my birthday (september 21st). The company that is doing it, is a friend of mine's called 4 wheel concepts, he gave me the secret info. hahahhaaa. She ordered a RCD Lift, 33x12.50x15 Mickey Thompson MTZs, 15x8 Mickey thompson Classic locks with red rings and is having it tinted. Do i play dumb or tell her that i know???????????? I kind-of want the truck to stay stock and get a explorer express supercharger, but i think the lift and stuff would be tha **** also... what do you guys think? heres a pic of the truck just to get an idea of what im working with.

i just kept trading them, i pay cash for all my vehicles and always pay the difference in cash, so if i have the money i just trade em off. I just dont think ill ever get rid of this one, i like it too much, i actually bought a new 2008 ranger FX4 with 100 miles a couple of months ago from a insurance company, it was a theft recovery with light body damage, i bought it for 5500.00 and fixed it and sold it to my brother for what i had in it because he needed a truck for his business. and i thought about selling either one, but i like black vehicles, and the 08 was bright yellow. We will see how this whole deal pans out, i hate her to spend 2500 dollars on a lift, i would have been happy with anything, hell a card is fine. idk maybe ill sell some stock parts and buy her something. lol

If you wife is willing to do something like that for you on your birthday, she is an exeptional(sp) wife. Don't let her find out that you know. It might break her heart. Just go with it and be happy with the lift.

just play dumb, shes trying to do something for you that she thinks you will love. if you ruin it, shes not going to be happy. Just play dumb and act surprised that way, she thinks she did something good for you (and she is lol) and you get a new lift and wheels w/ tires, everybody wins. play dumb.

Don't waste your cash on a blower you will never use the potential of. Get the lift *if* you offroad.
