Ok I am lost...........

Ok i am new here and posted a while back. I am in need of help bad. I have searched the internet for about 2 weeks now for the ideal lift i want. So help me out now because i have looked so much i am back to sqaure one.

Here it goes
1998 Ranger XLT Super 4*2

I want to run like 33's. just for looks a little off road but nothing like trails. So what size rims should i be looking for, also I have a 3 in body lift new in the box but what is going to be my suspension to clear 33's with some room so it looks good and then level.

And if anyone is selling anything to help me out let me know i have paypal and cash.

Thanks again

Youre looking at needing a 5.5" Suspension lift and a 3" BL to clear 33s. A 5.5" alone will allow you throw on 31s and with the BL; 33s will fit.


As for rims go with 15s or 16s. I myself think that with a larger tire 16s looks soo much better but a ste of tires will cost you $100 or more a set for 16 inch tires vs 15inch tires (so id suggest 15s)

Hey go ahead and break it all down and sell me the whole setup. I know you said like a yr or so. but let me know an exact time frame. I may wait if the time is right along with the price for everything.

But i do like that setup and thats about what i was looking for.
