New From Ontario Canada! Good day EH! (pics included)

Hey all, I actually have posted a few times in the forums but this is my first time posting pictures...

I have had my 2008 ford ranger sport for about a month. No complaints so far I absolutely love it. My dad has had an 01 Edge for about 4 years so I pretty much knew what i was getting.

So far i have tinted the front 20% and added a deck sub and amp.

I have ordered an Extang tri-fold Tonneau - should be here this week, and over the next few months are going to replace the door speakers (maybe amp them also) and get some 30x9.5x15 bfg AT's before the winter, as from what i've read the stockers are crap.

Here are a couple pictures...

Yah... i can't wait for the tonneau, keep the rain out and make the bed usable.


And yah, I was originally gonna go with 31x10.5x15 but the 30's were about 30 bucks cheaper a tire, however if the 31's will fit better than that is what i will do. I'm sure they will look better too.

I'm gonna use my stockers for the summer and upgrade in late summer or fall to the bfg's. Since we get alot of snowfall here (about 5-6 ft banks in the winter) I need some tires that can handle the snow. I know 2wd is not ideal but with good tires, and some weight in the back (as well as reasonable driving habits) i'm sure i'll be fine.

Like Stone said 31s and 32s are the way to go, I personally like 32s better cause they fill the wheel-wells more. Nice lookin truck! Btw you should defn do the headlight mod, you can see the completed picture in my avatar. It should be standard on all black trucks lol. You can do a search or PM me for more info.

Welcome to RF!! 32's FTW....well...for me now, 35's FTW. lol. What am I talking aboot? i don't know. lol.

I think your truck needs 32x11.50r15 BFG A/T's, and these alloys...



Just my opinion.

I have ordered it from Canadian tire (From The Name I guess they dont have them in the States)

It was on sale for 329.99 Canadian...

It is a soft (vinyl) tri fold deal. My buddy has one and with a little modification he has made his fit very tight to the truck. (ie no lifting by the tailgate)

I am excited to see it on the truck, and use it for some upcoming trips.
