Inteoducing myself, and my Ranger

Hey ranger forums, I'm Chase. Picked up my ranger about a year and,a half ago and it's been a you having it. Love the Damn thing more than my girlfriend (lol). Always pulling all my buddies out in their full sized square body chevys and old highboy fords and never have a problem wheeling where they can't. Here's a pic of the beauty. Done minor mods to make her look half decent. Ranger power. ✊✊

Wow good looking Ranger, welcome!

Looks good man. I saw in your other thread that you're running 3.73 gears? How's that going? I'm gonna upgrade tires soon and I'm deciding between 32's and 33's.

It's honestly not that bad it's half me driving like a jackass and half the combination of 33s, 3.73s, and the shitty 4 speed that comes behind the 3.0. If it was a 5 speed it would be sooooooo much better. Also the fact that they are 12.5 wife doesn't help but Damn they look mean so I can't justify getting rid of them 😂. I'drecommend them any day. Be careful though if it's 2wd they won't clear and some 4wd won't clear if they sag at all. Just measure the clearances and make sure that you won't rub anywere 👍
Edit: I may do a regear to 4.10s just for the gas mileage sake. Can't use overdrive if I'm over 80mph, or 70 in the Speedo because it's so off 😂😂

Yeah I'm not worried about them clearing the fenders. I have a slight crank and a trail gear front bumper so I don't have to worry about rubbing the valence. I'll probably just go with 32's

Seriously man just turn your wheel in increments and see if they will rub anywhere. If going to 33s from 29s you have to add 2 inches wherever you're checking. Not hard at all. Break out the tape 👍
