33s or 34s.....hmmmm...?

this is the last time ill post about this, i can decide now, 33s or 34s with 3" susp. lift.

i kinda want to get a body lift too, but if i did that, it would be 34s for sure. i dont want to have to regear and all. i want it to look bigger but not loose so much power and gas mileage. im afraid it wont get that much height out of 33s with a susp. lift, please help!

If your going to double lift go with 35s, anything smaller is gonna look stupid. Or do a 1" bodylift with suspension and 34s. If you don't want to regear just do, Suspension and 33s.

The look of a 3SL and 33's is a great look on rangers IMO. Wouldn't mind going there myself.

you can custom make your BL. If you don't want to regear I'd suggest not getting bigger tires then. If you don't mind regearing then get some 4.56 gears double lift it and throw some 35's on it. that would be much much better.

If you do it yourself you can have it done for around 200, I don't remember gear prices right now. Having it done professionally might be closer to 500 or more depending on who your getting it done with.

Whys that odd? Not everyone has money to afford 10 MPG or less. I love the looks of a lifted truck but I still want to get decent gas mileage (even thought I'm not really now lol). Regearing doesn't just help with gas mileage and power, it saves unneccesary wear on the tranny and engine.

Yeah you can fit 33s on but IMO it looks a little stuffed. If your going to use it offroad, your going to tear up your bumpers and fender flares if you ever flex it a little bit.
