31" Bfg's and question on dayton 31's

Ok Money id tight and I'm just mostly looking for looks ..

so Can i do the following..

P/a Body lift.. which i dont plan to add till may when the snow goes..

31 x 10.5 15's on the stock 2000 ranger rims

This way It doesnt hurt the fuel mileage too much.. or my pocket..
If I buy the tires now.. can i mount them without too much rubbing?

ah man..

minus points for me..

um...what size are on there..i dont think 31s will rub...

but if you want that much more lift then get hte 3" body lift..

so i take it your 2WD..fabtech makes a good lift for 2wds..that will fit 31 with no problemo

well i could get a 3" spindle kit.. for about $400 .. the thing is I dont want to go ahead and buy the 31's now and then lift it 3" and it look too small..

right now it has 225/75 15's

And i'm torn.. Like how much trouble is it to put on a spindle vs a body lift...
I've done suspension drops etc on cars before but never on a truck..

Maybe i'm better off spending the extra $200 and getting the spindles?

ok done.. I ordered the spindles and they are paid for...

3 inch spindles and 2 inch blocks in the rear...

Now .... I'm guessing a 32-33 inch tire? what about rims.. Should i throw out some cash for new rims first.. or can i get away with the stock rims for now?

Its all about what you want your truck to look like. If you dont care about the looks for now. Run the stock shoes. Then upgrade for some nice shoes when you get some money. It doesnt matter, as long as you plan on staying with a 15" wheel. I just got an account at the tire store so I pay payments on mine. But its not bad. As you can tell, they look hella sick anyways!!!

I know the rims dont fit.. they are 6 lugs.. but the tires are made by bridgestone and have an aggressive tread.. they are $200 each new here in Canada
