Yeah i sold it close to a year ago i think, it looked awesome but it was giving my truck problems that i am still dealing with.. gas mileage was no big deal but it was killing my front suspension with the 35's, and i needed the cash i sold it for... my truck is just as functional with the body lift and 33s as it would have been with the superlift and 33's so i have no complaints.. once i get new tires and fix some odds and ends on the truck i will be happy with it..

Yea...superlift and 35's was way too much for kevins driviing lol...he went through wheel bearings like crazy...still has a bad one!!!

Now I'm going through problems too...it's just the fact that IFS isn't made to handle that big of a tire...I get a clunk crackle pop...we've been around a while so we see how everyone superlifted/rcd with 35s eventually has enough problems that they go to either SFA or spend a TON of money replacing parts...its not worth it.

Body lift on 33s is more than enough for an IFS ranger 4wd...only reason mine is on 35s is because my suspensin lift is 300 and my bearings are 11 bucks :) 4x4 hubs are almost 200...so for me to replace my suspension every 10k miles it's no biggie...which is about what it needs.

You'll see why everyone goes to SFA....

Agree 33's are like the perfect fit for a ranger with out causing to many problems i want 35's so bad but i really dont want to go threw ball joints and wheel bearings like mad....

Nice man! I want to come down to visit my grandparents one of these days, they live in the Villages! Maybe if I still have my truck then, and drive it down, I'll hit you up and we'll wheel! :)
