Need some lift/tire info

Hey guys I'm new to the 4x4 world, but I'm very interested in it. I have spent the last few years building up cars mostly mustangs. I have spent some time reading some of the posts on lifts and possible tire combinations. I have an 05 lvl 2 and I would like to lift it. I would like to be able to put on Ground Hawg Bias 14/35-15LT tires. Will an RCD lift be enough for these tires, and will there be other things that I might need to make this combo work for me. Thanks alot

you will need a body lift and rcd to fit 35s, also regearing to 4.56s is a good idea

so maybe sticking with a 35X12.5 would be better,and when you say like crazy how often does that mean with average use?? How much more mud etc can a 35 go through compared to a 33??

you cant quantify mud.

A 5.5" RCD lift hopefully fits 35s. I have 35x12.50s on my ranger with just a 3 inch body lift.

1) its 5"...
2) with a 3" BL AND the 5" RCD i still tuck and rub 35s..


you COULD run 35s with the RCD, someone is running 35s with just the Superlift, but he just does mud mainly, if you do any kind of trails or rocks where you need to travel i would recommend running a body lift with the RCD

if your only going through mud, sure go ahead and throw some 35s on there with the susp lift...

well It will be going down trails, with rocks mud etc. Does the RCD kit work without any extra modifications on an 05?

Also 4x4ranger do you encounter any drive line problems with your mods?
