If you mean leveling it by cranking your bars then yes....you will have to almost max them and do some trimming but they can fit.

You can make custom mounts to raise it up. No one makes a leveling kit for the Rangers, the easiest way to do it (and free) is to just crank the t-bars up a little bit. I'd go with a 32x11.5 just so when you do offroad it you can flex some. You can go with 33x12.5 but you'll rub a lot and won't be able to flex without tearing stuff up.
