I am thinking more like 32's and 33's if you do a 2" suspension on top of the 3" body. but i could be wrong, im sure someone will chime in here.

most 3' lifts clear a 32.11.50 with no rubbing at all(or trimming)
33's fit also but may slightly rub
more important would be the wheel offset :)

yeah i realized that after i read the post... He should be able to throw some blocks in the rear and maybe some drop spindles or Im not sure if the newer rangers are Tbars but he could get some #1 bars from the yard and put those on little bit more money sure. but then he could get bigger tires
