I didn't get super up close, but for the rear it only had 2" blocks with springs and huge drop down shackles. For the front steering looked like it had quite a bend to it. Shouldn't be too hard to fix it though. And it has a b/l too.

Mt truck will never see the middle of a lake like that, if it did it would be covered in water above the bottom of the windows.

Interco makes the tires. Super Swamper is another tire that Interco makes. Damn near every 4 wheeling vendor that sells tires has Boggers, Super Swampers, IROKS, etc... etc...

http://www.intercotire.com/site24.php

Far as getting them on your truck.... depends on what size you want. If you want to run 44s, you'll need to do some major modification. If you want to run the 33" version, just get a body lift or a 3-4" Suspension Lift. Granted they suck on the road, so seriously think about getting a road set of tires if you still drive on the road. Hell you could probably even run the 31x12.5x15 Bogger on a stock Ranger with a slightly fatter then stock wheel.
