3in BL on 32

So I just find out that summit used to have the 3in body lift on sale for like 107 bucks, but now its like 149, plus 35 for the shifter extension, itís really the best price I could get right now in any body lift from any brand?

Also, do you guys think that my 32s are too small for a 3in BL?


This is the crappiest picture from the crappiest phone but was the fastest PS too

I want a 4 door. It does not look to bad. 33s would fill it up some more, Im not sure on 35s. I would rock it just like it is.

I think 32's on a 3" BL would look good. I am not much on the stuffed fenders look.

There is really only an inch difference between 32's and 33's, so it's almost not even noticeable, IMO.

My god I want your truck. I think it will look badass with a 3 inch lift and 32's. Hell, I am running 3 inch b/l with 31's.

Your truck is also 2" lower than his so you can't really compare them.

I think 32's look good on w/ a body lift. No need to spend money if you already have the tires...

Now thatís the height I want, I like the one with the black wheels better the first one looks like it needs a little t-bar crank

All the comments are really making me decide to do it, now I really think it would look good with the 32s, thanks guys
I just hope I donít find any mayor problems with the BL since Iím sure its not design for a double cab ranger, cant think of anything different besides the length but I just donít know
