That's my truck! lol

If you're still wondering... my wheels are 15x10" with 3.75 BS.

You were asking about ride quality as well... it's the same as stock (rough, lol) because I've never cranked my bars!

yeah but it is a lot of coin for not much. I'm still not 100% on anything.. i thought i was 99% on the SL but as always I'm second guessing myself. However I did go wheeling today. I'll post up a thread with pictures in a minute.

Oh so thats why your tires stick out so far.. 10" wide wheel and 3.75 BS and 12.5 tire.. it all makes since now. And thats kinda what i figured you were gonna say about ride quality.

I have a superlift and am running 35's and it rides way nicer than stock, bigger tires dont mean anything on your ride quality, depends on load range, pressure and most importantly shock quality.

the ONLY upside to a bodylited ranger is it makes it slightly easier to weld sliders on

if you're gonna listen to someone about wasting money, dont listen to someone with two 15s.
First, you don't have to move brake lines(durp). What does it matter if the engine sits lower under the hood?

Second, you're a bitch. Put that Fi in a real box and not that POS sealed box you made for it.

how are you running 35s with just a superlift? did it not rub like crazy?

my new plan is the 4" superlift and 33x12.5x17 KM2's.. maybe 35s if they'd fit but idk. one of the main reasons I'm getting the superlift is so i don't have the stuffed look anymore so getting 35s would kind of defeat the purpose..

edit: scratch that above.. I'm thinking 305/70/r17 km2's (33.9x12.4) on my current wheels after a 4" superlift. opinions?

I would imagine 35's wouldn't be too big of deal if you either removed your front valence or cut a good chunk out of it!

I had to trim about 3/4" out of the bottom corners of my valence when I put my 33's on. It might not be needed if you're going to run narrower wheels than mine though!

well now i'd be running my same wheels i have current (17x10) so idk i might run into troubles.. i will probably get the lift installed and then see how much clearance I have with my 285/70s and go from there.

i MIGHT be narrowing down on something right now and might be looking at some where around a Thanksgiving break install time. going back and forth between the 305/70/17 KM2's or just go big or go home and get 35x12.5 KM2's and make them fit one way or another. I will probably make that decision after I install the lift. Opinions on the KM2s on 17" MT classic II?

thanks for all the replies and help and opinions from everyone

I trimmed the rear fender a little bit and it clears for the most part, little rub at full flex. I would have got 33's but I have the Dixon bros long travel on the way with a 6" glass fender so that's my reason for 35's
