Lift setup

What's up guys! Was just wondering if I could get some people to post pictures if they have this set up..

T-bar crank or new index keys
AAL or shackles
WITH
3" body lift
33x12.5x15 with 3.75 BACKSPACING

Just wanna see what it actually looks like.

Thanks.

The best thing I could show you off the top of my head is 3 inch body lift, with 33x12.5 and 3.65 backspacing which I like a little better as sticks out a little more in a 15x8 but not to wide such as the 15x10 is.

Almost everyone that ive seen that went as far as to max out the front bars and shackles in the rear moved up to 35's. I think there is one guy with a white ranger off the top of my head but you will have to give me a minute to search him down.

Man that's a good looking ranger. I got bored sitting in the shop the other day and was Curious if my 33's would fit on my truck with just a slight torsion crank. And they did with no real rubbing issues @ all.. Plan on putting the shackles, shocks, and all on next week. Anyways I noticed you have traction bars in the rear.. What brand and style are they? Where'd you get them from?

Thank you. I built them my self. I started with rubber bushings which was a bad idea. Later switched to heim joints (rod ends) and they work a lot better. I am the only one that has ever turned a wrench on my truck. 33's will never rub with my setup. I had 35's on it for a year or so with no rubbing at all. Minor off roading. I went down to 33's because of the 4.10 gearing and manual trans. I tow way to much with this little truck.
