again, if you leave it with an open case, and not really wheelin it, it should be able to handle some big tires, how big, well, dont know.

youll be alright. when you start adding troque mulitpliers, like limited slips, lockers, mini spools, full spools, thats when you start breaking things. what size tires you wanting to run, since its a "show truck"?

yea, id go with 40s or something around that, but then id be concerned about them shafts. id go a step higher though, 39.5s, 38s are "common" to the ranger crowd, maybe even the show scene, so bigger can only get you noticed, but hopefully in a good way.

I know you and resqdude run 37's, ryan runs 38.5's I can't think of many more on this site...I think theres 1 or two on ORR. jesse used to run 40's on IFS, then he went to solid axle...but he no longer owns that truck.

Also there is a white edge that is SAS'ed runnin around either rps or orr that is/was runnin boggers.

oh yea, I forgot brenton and jey are running 38" meats IIRC

I'll hopefully be on 37's sometime after my front end is rebuilt.

37's just look awesome on a ranger!!!
