no lift, 35's

after doing some trimming, i'll have room for 35's.
i got one corner done, 3 more to go, i need some more cut off wheels.
my ranger stock had 31's on it
at ride height it doesn't rub anywhere

will post a couple of pictures when i figure out how.

Flex it out and see if it rubs. Do you have the pictures online already? If not upload them too www.photobucket.com and post the links here.

Sounds like you just completely ***** rigged the crap out of your truck! I would love to see pics, but I just do not see any way hacking off your fenders is going to look good.

cool, but you have absolutely no room to use those 35s. Well, without ripping your fenders and bedsides up!

Im sorry but what were you thinking. Looks better than I thought but still. Atleast get a body lift it will only run you like a hundred bucks.

The negativity doesn't come from your desire to mess with the truck. While it's cool to have 35's, you can't use them...at all. Just no room for any travel or articulation.

35s on a stock suspension Ranger is like having a F350 dually with a 4cylinder powering it.

So how about that Cherokee thats in the background??

i under stand how the suspension works, i have a jeep on 36's.

bodylifts don't appeal to me, they don't do much...

i'm going to get all the fenders cut the same and then see how it works. most likely my ranger will get a solid axle and a little lift. i'm looking into gearing options before i go much further.

Not me had a kid I knew in Highschool who cut about an inch off the front fenders of a brand damn new superduty to fit 44's. They rubbed when he had her flexed out so he decided to just take a grinding wheel to it.


Then in '06 we lifted a a brand new harley 250 for a kid and he say they dont give ya much for 60k these days as he took a sawall to it. Truck had like 2,500mi on it.

You probaly know but a body lift would get you a little more clearance. Can you even go up curb without that rubbing.

You're 100% right it's your truck and you have they opinion that matters. That being said don't take a crash course in redneck engineering then talk about it on the internet and expect to get a round of applause.

dude just wow i have a 94 and i flexed my 31s into my bed with stock suspension and my 31s rub on the inter fender there is no way your going to use your truck on trails with 35s maybe 33s but even with a bl you wont be able to use them your wasting your time until you do a body lift and at least a 2 inch front lift and shackles.



Again 31s rub on all stock there is no way this is going to work
