apparently well enough haha.


But when you think about it. If people are fitting 40 inch tires on 2wd trucks with 6 inches of lift, 3 inch spindle and 3 inch body, and a torsion bar, then he doesnt really need to do a double superlift which sounds not really possible. You can get a 4 inch superlift, 3 inch body, AALS and tosion,a nd have 9 inches of lift on a 4wd, which'll fit 40s most likely.

So I guess I really doubt he did double superlift. I mean seriously, lotsa parts would hafta be fabbed, it'd be easier jus to get it custom done.

I know someone's going to sound off and say that you should just take it easy, but sometimes that's not an option, especially with some of the terrain out here. I'll offer up my opinion; if you want to run a larger tire, install a body lift and/or glass fenders, swap out your stock shocks for something that can handle wheeling a bit better (Rancho's, Bilsteins, etc) Lock up the front and rear(Ected's or no slip) and run 33's(swampers radials(sipe em too). All this stuff should run you about $2500 or so, if not less if you can acquire some things used and in good condition. Anyway, just offering an opinion. Being that it is your truck, do what you think is right. Latz

Not arguing with what you say. Just that most of the people with those huge tires, can either afford to break stuff or only drive them on the roads..

I would say that 35s are the biggest practical size on a ranger without a SAS

He welded the first lift to the frame,then bolted the second one to the first,He also told me,that he felt iffy about lifting his truck that way.And if he would have kept it he was going to do an sas on it.But as soon as the truck was built,he entered it in a show and sold it that day.

Where do I get just a set of drop down brackets like those on the truck with 39s? Anyone know if they will fit a coil spring front end?

You can't usually buy part of a lift. But you can sortof make the stuff urself. Harder than it sounds of course!
