2 inch spindles

im thinkin of puttin 2 inch lift spindles on my 02 2 wheel drive ranger. with these, should i be able to stuff 31's under it or should i pay the extra 3 or 4 hundred bucks and get the 3 inch spindles or just add a lift coil with the spindles or what? im not really lookin to jack it up way high because of gas bein almost 3 dollars a gallon here amd havin a 300 dollar a month truck payment.just somethin to give me a lil more play...cuz i like mud and rocks, and stock dont cut it on that.

If gas prices are an issue, a lift is not going to help.

any pics of your truck?

ok...well. it looks like i might go a different route. i found a 3 inch body lift for a lil less than the spindles were. so ill prolly get it and stick the 31's under it.

^ there is... 31s or 32s will be fine with the 3" BL, 31s might look a little small but wont be to bad
