No lift here, just a torsion bar crank.

It's the wheels that give it the nice stance. MT Classic II's w/ 3.313 backspacing.

Just checked your pics. The difference is definitly in the tires and wheels. My BFG's are a little wider, and it looks like my backspacing might be out further. Plus the BFG's look aggressive.

my friend has a 3.0L 5speed ranger with 32s and he has to downshift on any slight uphill...and on the straights he can put it into 5th but the rpm's are at 1500...so he just leaves it in 4th w/ the rpm's at 3200

I know this thread is 6 days old, but I've been out of town. I have 32's w/3.0 and 5 spd. I can run 5th up hills just fine. I run about 2,800rpm's down the highway at around 75mph in 5th. The difference may be in the gearing. I have 4.10's. Just remember one thing, it's a 3.0. You're going to have to downshift where you wouldn't with a 4.0.
