Stock Ranger flexing

so i was at my buddies place, and seen a few big mounds of dirt..decided to see what the ranger could do stock. think i maxed it, without blowing shocks or anything...but meh..the pictures make the mounds look small..they're a lot bigger than what they look like..

now i wanna lift it! im not huge on 33s..maybe a subtle lift and some 31's for the lil 2.3 anyways....heres the pics..cell phone pics

i have an 08 2.3 and I just put 31"s on it. power has decreased a lot, mpg is down to 19 and I do pretty much all highway. my speedometer and odometer are off to... but i think they are worth it :)

i know this topic has been covered a bunch of times, but how bad would the 31's actually slow me down..probably best to NOT go with a steel rim if i grab the 31s..but how snappy is the truck after the 31s..and how off is the speedometer..approx??

the speedometer is off by about 5 mph, the odometer... well I drive exactly 50.0 miles from my driveway to my work so 100 round trip. now it reads as 93.3 miles...

The street pickup on 31's isnt to bad, I notice the most effect when on the freeway. floor it and down shift if you want to go places haha

Is yours a manual transmission? because that will help.

my truck is a 5 spd, wouldnt buy anything else. i been wanting 31s for the longest time..cant decide what rim to go with..it has to be a deep dish though. really really deep...as the ladies say..haha..i love the front end of your truck punisher. i want a black billet, but the JY around me doesnt have too many rangers, and i wanna pull an older ranger grill surround, dont wanna go hacking mine all up. As u guys can see, i also did the black headlights, and then ruined them by not letting the silicone fully dry when i sealed them (i put them on the truck, and the heat from the lights baked a film on the inside of the lens) that i cant clean (trust me i tried)
