They don't put a 31" spare on Level2's. Standard 235/75r15 on my truck.

I have a 265/70/16 spare tire under my truck. That was hard cramming in there. Lots of tire shine for lubrication on the rubber so it would slide in real nice :)

My duals run close to the tire but I ain\'t worried

Ahhh, I assumed it was a full size spare since my stock 2WD came with a full size spare.

If I didn't have LS I would have just rocked my stock spare but you can't ride two different size tires on LS or Locker.

yep stupid shops, i told them how to set it up just a y pipe no muffler and they said sorry i cant go that far. so i found a place bout 40 mins away perfect they will fab it all up for 125 bucks but wont install it, its all good cuz i will have a flange, so take the stock exhaust off and bolt up the lightning exhaust and boom rummmmblers! Oh yea the stock piping on a 03 ranger xlt is 2 Fk'n inches, wow

I know. I was really surprised when my buddy's who has a neon said his exhaust is 2.5" on a 2.0l, and I've only got 2" on my 3.0. Seems like it should be bigger.

I dunno about "rumble" but itll sound good. The best exhaust iv heard on a Ranger rumbles at low rpms but once it starts revvin it gets that nasty "not an 8 cylinder" sound

Exactly. Mine sounds awesome when it starts, and it has a really really low deep grumble that sounds like a v8, but as soon as I rev up at all, it sounds just like a 6 cylinder should, but I like it. It's definitely better than stock. I'll upload a video of mine when I get home if you guy wanna hear it.

What kinda system you got?
My fav is a 4.0 with headers, a Flowmaster Super 44 witha Y-pipe. It grumbled through a lot of rpms but eventually got that V6 sound

Mines a 3.0 with a Flowmaster Super 44 dumped before the axle. I wish I could hvw headers, but I'm waiting until I can do a 5.0 swap for that.

I got mine for $25 lol. It blew off my friend's car when he downshifted, and took out the bumper of an Escalade behind him lol. It was totally fine, those things are so tough, it was just scratched up. I painted it and took my truck to a shop and had it put on for $35!
