7 inches of lift?

ok specs are 2wd 3.0 v6 ranger XLT with a 5/4" spindle lift and a 2" BL 35's shouldn't be a problem right?

Good question.....instead of a 2" BL, go with what everyone else goes with, a 3" PA Body lift. I'm pretty sure a 5.5" is good for 31s.

youll need mroe lift than people with an edge or a 4wd. your coil sprung is lower, and would take more to get bigger tires.

it takes that much to run them on torsion bar suspensions. you could probably get away with them with some cutting

on the camburg site. their 5.5 kit fits 33s with front glass fenders(your prob not going to run camburg, but im just using it as a comparison).. so i dont see why 35s wouldnt fit with 7-8" lift.. you could always run 34s..

i had a 5.5 suspension lift and 3inch body lift, and i was running 33s, but i stripped the truck down and sold it before i could put on 35s, but they would have fit just fine
