BL Pic Request

i want a picture of a BL and STOCK tires. i just need see how bad it looks. Because if its really bad then i will buy tires and bl at the same tire, otherwise i will buy the bl sooner and buy the tires shortly after. depends on how it looks tho.

32s don't look too bad but they look kinda small. Stock tires would look terrible.

Hope my 31's look good when I install mine, I'm sure they will. Stock tires look like poo anyways though

you have it the wrong way

bigger tires first, then body lift.

That's with 32's and it doesn't look too good. I'd definitely say BL and tires at the same time. Just don't forget you have 3.55 gears so 33's might slow you down a bit unless you want to regear.

His sig is wrong. He has a half inch over factory in the rear and about a 1" torsion bar crank. The tires are just TINY. I want to say 235/75R15? With a body lift and the way it sits now he could fit 33's without rubbing. Stone and Justin run a body lift and 33's no problem.

Oh and remember he's a 2wd Edge not a coil-spring truck so he sits higher anyways. Greg isn't yours a coil spring truck? I can't remember from the meet.

3" BL cab and 235/75r15's...and stock bed...just to show a comparison...



imo.....buy your lift. then when you got your money...get tires and wheels.....THEN install body lift

Here's 3" bodylift and 32x11.50's...shoot..i had 35's and the bodylift and no rub except at full left crank...rubbed the innerfenderwell in the back....same spot tires rub if they're oversize on the ranger...

Ya I talked to Justin about it he said 33 would probably be to big for my truck. I have coil springs.

I'm wondering how I'd look with Shackles, AAL's, Tbars cranked, and a 3 inch body lift on 32's. Lol I don't want to get rid of the 32's for 33's, hmmmmmm. I have plenty of room,I think I could fit 33's now with just trimming the valance and new Tbars

I must confess. I wasn't a fan of body lifts. BUt I might do one eventually Lol. Maybe I'll be able to fit 35s. Anyone got a guess? Or go metric and find something around a 34..
