the thing im wondering is will the 8.5's rub with 245's on the front or should i just do 225's up front with 8.5s and then 9.5's out back with 245's think that would look sick especially black bullitscan some1 show me there ranger with black bullits or just bullits period

I'm running 17x8 Cobras with 245/45/17 if you run 18x8.5 I'd suggest a 255 for a little more protection against the lip

here's a pic of mine with 17's

Mines a 98, I put 06 tails on mine. I put the 4x4 valance on it last year got it cheap from the dealer. It's got a 4/4 drop on it. I went from a 2/3 to a 4/4 so it's got DJM upper and Lowers and out back it has a flip kit and a lifting shackle to get the 4".

To get a 5/6, cut a half a coil out of the 2" spring in the DJM kit or get the Belltech 3" coil and put a 1" block in the rear or you can flip the rear hangers for another 2" in the back
