new to the little truck

I'm out of Chicago area I havent done too much w/ little trucks at all, I have only until recently have had full size. I still have one f-250 which I might have it sold. So I thought I would play around with my ranger But I think I already messed up by putting aftermarket keys in & cranked up around 2 1/2 "s on the front end, is this a bad move? I'm running 31's on it now but I just ordered 33 10.50 x15 bfg all terrains for it, It looks like they will fit ( I hope ), I do work it on construction sites all day so there is some flex going on nothing major. well I rambled on enough, but if anyone has some help for me please let me know. Thanks ..... I will gt a pic up here soon. till then

I would. They just put a lot of extra stress on the front end.

I'd definitely take those 'lift' keys out. Do you have a 2wd or 4wd?

Welcome, you should ditch them keys as stated before and you can run 32x11.5x15's stock. What are the specs on your truck?

The set up is its a fx4 level 1 2006 extended cab, it came w/ 31" a/t's I really want to run the 33- 10.50x15 that I have coming in I did take the keys out today & just cranked up the stock ones, I got the sameheight as I did w/ the aftermarket keys in, so I maybe slow today but what is the difference if I still gained the same height? oh yeah trigger the pm didnt work
