do you want them to rub of clear properly? haha

rub is easy, body lift and crank the t-bars but mine rubbed like crazy up front, i didnt dare flex it out.

properly, 3" BL and RCD or Superlift

he doesent have torsion bars. you can get a 3" body lift, but with a coil sprung suspension plus body lift i dont even think you can fit 33"s.

31 is the max size you can fit according to the tire size guide on this site.
I don't know anything about lifting coil spring suspensions, someone else will have to chime in.

I bet if you get bigger coils and spindles with a body lift you can run 35s. On sporttrucksuspension.com they sell a 6/4 lift kit for your ranger. that would be 9 inches of lift with a body lift. I'm almost positive you can run 35"s with it, i'll let someone who knows for sure guarantee it.

at least 4.56s, if you have the 3.0L or 2.3L you may want to go lower than that
