no offense, but 20s on a lifted compact truck dont do it for me ... i think they look great on superdutys and such ... but i think if youre gonna have a ranger on 20s it should be dropped or even better bagged

See now I liked the look of the 20's on my truck better than the 15's I put on. I just wish I could have gotten a 35x14.5 bogger for the 20's then I would have really had what I wanted.

Large rims sound overkill, but compliment large diameter tires well on the road. Less sidewall flex and bouncing on the road is definitely noticeable. Personally I was amazed at the handling difference going from 15s to 18s. IMO 20s are overkill with less than a 38" though.

Do you have torsion bars or coil springs, I've heard some of the sports coming with coil springs now. Also 4x4 or 2wd? If you have torsion bars you can run 33s with just a body lift. If your 2wd with torsion bars you can run 35s with a body lift and spindle lift. If your 4x4 you can run 33s with either a body lift or suspension lift. 35s I would double lift. And then for coilsprings for 33s you'll need to run the 5.5 lift and for 35s you'll need to add a body lift on top of that.

Body lift and spindle lift, then add-a-leaf and Chevy drop shackle in the rear and you'll be good to go.
