How's everybody? 94' RANGER XLT 2X4.. 5.0.. Hehe

How's everybody doing? I just had a few questions. I bought a rolled 2001 ranger edge, and it's got great mechanical parts on it still as well as some nice 31's BFGOODRICH. First question is, I know i can raise the rear of the truck by blocks, but how am i going to fit the 31s up front?
I am doing some body work to the truck right now, as well as added fender flares from the 01' edge. I've got a 5.0 car'b V8 thats itching to be put in this winter. Let me know guys/gals
Thanks!

I'm talking my 94' ranger. The 01 had zero clearance issues with the 31's. I am highly doubting fitment on my 94'

Jaremy, he doesnt have torsion bars to crank, its a 94.

Brian, you could most likely buy some lift coils for the front, and either blocks, shackles, or add a leafs on the rear. I'm not sure now much those Ibeam 2wd's need to fit 31s

I have a 97 2wd and 31s fit fine stock, they was just to crowded looking for me so i made some coil spacers and raised it 1.5 in the front and left the rear stock. Looks great, no scrubbing or rubbing even at full lock. I have a picture if you want to see.

you don't need to do anything to fit 31s on a 2wd drive truck and you can fit 32s stock on a 94 4x4 so just get 31s that's all you have to you don't need to lift or anything.

If you just want a little lift you can get a 2" lift from skyjacker for like 200 bucks

He's got an Ibeam Ranger... your spindles and coils don't do him any good at all

Thanks for all the help Guys. I know i can fit the rears without problem. The truck is a 4x2, A lot may think it's a 4x4. I was wondering if these would work so i could fit the 31's in the front? Heres a link
