Canadian Eh?

Hey guys I'm new to this site, I'm from New Brunswick, Canada working as a mechanic in the army. Just bought a 2008 Ranger FX4 and plan on jackin it up. Just bought 33X12.50R15 Hercules Trail Diggers today actually, and ordering some 15X10 Pro Comp Alloy wheels and 3" PA body lift next week, along with that cranked T-Bars. Plans for the truck are 4" Superlift kit and some little things like front bash guard, tonneau cover and a catback for now. Any advice and ideas would be of some help! Heres a few pics:

Can anyone tell me how to post the pics? haha

Nice truck welcome to the R-F! looks like youve got everything planned out! Only suggestion I would make is that if you are going to be running a body lift AND the superlift, you should get 35" tires. i have a Superlift with 33"s and its perfect, but if i was 3" higher, it wouldnt look right without the bigger tires

Howdy & welcome. Sounds like you have great plans for the truck. You'll wanna get your alignment checked out after cranking the t-bars. Do a review on those tires once you;ve had them for a while. They look pretty good.

Thanks for the welcome, Im going to wait till I put the tires on to align it, I got my other 2 tires today and I ordered my wheels tonight so hopefully by the weekend they will be on, Then I can align it. :)
