Get the basic 6" suspension lift from superlift or skyjacker, it will cost you between 650-800 or a basic 4" suspension lift for 450-600...cant remember the prices. Dont bother with the leveling coils...they suck. And going to a 33" tire is not going to be that much different than a 32"...man up and put 33's on it. Get some 15x8 wheels and put some 33x10.5/15 BFG's on it.

I put 2" leveling springs up front and about a 1" block in the rear with
265/75/16's and it looks pretty good. I can send you pics if you want to see the stance.

A levelling kit would look good, with some bigger tires, ditch the flag style mirrors, tint the glass, maybe paint the bed rails fenders and valence black or dark grey. Oh and also get one of them poodle dealies

As for the tear drops. the explorer tear drops have narrower "drops" as for the ranger wheels are a little fatter. at least the older tear drops are. Not sure if they're explorer or ranger specific.

Yeah I plan on painting the flares and front valance dark grey and tinting the windows this summer. I have a bedcover on there so no side rail painting. As you can see, I already went ahead and got the poodle dealie!!!! LOL!!
What other types of mirrors are available? Just wondering.

If it's got a 3.0 I wouldn't mess with it. Actually I think it's super clean as is.
