Last Pictures Before Big Change

Well here are some pictures I took today after I cleaned the truck up. My new setup is gonna be either 4" superlift and 33's on 17's or, that plus a 3" bl and 35s on 17s. What do ya'll think is the best setup, or am I making a mistake all together..lol? I wanna go big!!

17s and 35s...

i always loved my truck with a body lift and 33s though. nice thing about running 33s is less wear and tear, no need for gearing, nice ride, tires are still cheaper, looks great... etc..

Ya thats what I was thinkin too about the 33s, the only prob. is that I just know if I go with 33s Im gonna want those 35s..and its gonna kill me. The other thing I worry about is wear but I mean its obvious that I dont wheel my truck..like ever haha, and Im gonna try to go with the closest to stock backspacing that I can with no rubbing problems. I know you have had all the lifts though lol...I def. wanted your opinion.

if i could go back to 33s and body lift i would stay there. i think. i mean i ran 35s for a year and everything started wearing out... soo fast too. balljoints, tie rods, bearings...

33s i never had an issue. plus it still drives good with stock gearing, just a bit slower.

tires wear fast, once you burn the 33s up then decide if you want 35s and to go bigger.

my truck is about to cross from being a DD to just a toy, its just beyond a DD, breaks all the time and i am always workin on it. granted its not much of a ranger anymore

Ya maybe I should just go with the 33s for awhile and see how I like it..its better to go up later, then try to go back down haha. So you even think runnin up and down the street the 35s would tear stuff up?

Looks really nice. I'd go for the BL and 33's as well. I've got that setup and I love it.

I like chrome rims, but I think both of those types of rims would look much better black. Just my opinion.

I say 33's with the BL.

Have you ever seen them in person? I always have wondered how they would look. If Im gonna just go with one lift Im gonna go with the superlift, I think I would be alright with a bl I have just always wanted the superlift. Would 34s fit on a superlift alright? Who makes 34s other than super swamper?

you need either

315/70/17 = 34.4x12.4/17
or
315/75/16 = 34.6x12.4/16

Kumho makes them in that 315/70/17, they might rub, it will be close
