Icon5 Advice please???

I am 15 and got my 99 ranger xlt a couple of months ago. I am selling my dirtbike and am going to put the money towards my truck. I want a 3 inch body lift with 33's or 32's, a magnaflow exhaust, a k&n cold air intake, and a high performance chip. My ranger is a 3.0 v6 manual trans. Any advice on lift kits, wheels, tires, chips, etc. is helpful. Thanx

lol just browse through the forums...theres tons of info

you can't go wrong with a superlift or fabtech
tires and wheels just buy what you like

make sure you are at least 4.10 gearing and you'd be fine

He says make sure you have 4.10s, but I my 3.slow pushes my 31s just fine with 3.73s. Plus, if you put the exhaust, K&N and chip, you'll be good to go

3.73 will be ok with 33 tires, not ideal but ok. is your truck 2wd or 4x4? that will help with determining a lift

You're right, Kyle. Stock I would do a regear too, but he said he was gonna add the extra stuff on, and a regear on top of that would be some major $$$. If money isn't an object, heck yea regear, but if you're trying to save some money, you should be fine with the performance mods. lol

And if you get a body lift, get the gap covers. I can't stand a BL'd truck where I can see through the underbody... :/
