hes blowing smoke up ur ***, my friend had 94 ranger ext cab with a 6 inch suspension lift w/ 35s and he had plenty of room. plus a body lift always seems to fit larger tires better then a suspension...

like the 87-91 F150s, a 3" body lift will fit 35s...

It seems that the people at local or small shops dont know their sh*t.

I was cheking around to get my 3" BL on, and the guy at the local shop was like eh i doubt 33's will fit, he said 32's with rubbing. I was like "umm no"
I said 33's fit with NO LIFT and some rubbing...he was like i dont think so...i walked out....haha.

Taken from therangerstation.com
1998 - Improvements to engines include enlarging the base four-cylinder engine from 2.3-liters to 2.5-liters and giving the 3.0-liter V6 a new intake manifold that improves torque, or pulling power, by 14 percent. Then the standard cab was stretched 3 inches, thanks to a 3.6-inch increase in wheelbase. With the '98 redo, the Ranger's previous C-section frame is now boxed from the front bumper to the A-posts, which greatly enhances overall solidity. The Ranger's sheetmetal forward of the A-pillars has been tastefully cleaned up for '98. The fresh pieces include a new grille, bumper, valance, lighting, and aluminum hood. Designers also lowered the truck's hoodline and increased the rear-window size, which greatly improves outward visibility. Another '98 change that positively influenced the ride and steering quality was the front-suspension's overhaul. Ford replaced the veteran twin I-beams with a new wishbone-style front suspension that uses coil springs or torsion bars. New "Pulse Vacuum" hub-locks enables virtually silent 4x4 engagement on the fly with a flick of the dash switch.

1999 - New tow hooks assist in towing and in being pulled out of trouble (4x4 only). New 2.5L I-4 engine with increased engine size, horsepower and torque is standard on 4x2. Front crush zone helps absorb energy in the event of a frontal collision. New Pulse Vacuum Hublock (4x4) allows "shift on the fly" capability at just about any speed with smooth, virtually silent operation.
New "A pillar" grab handles assist entering and leaving vehicle (XLT and Splash 4x4 only). New Second Generation depowered standard driver/passenger air bags with manual passenger deactivation switch (always wear your safety belt and deactivate the passenger air bag when using a rear-facing child safety seat). New larger Regular Cab - 76 mm (3") deeper with additional interior space. New seats have a sporty style and feature excellent comfort and lateral support. Side door intrusion beams add protection in the event of certain side impacts. Tie-downs in bed help secure cargo.

The cab IS differant the fenders my have simmilar size openings but are differant.

I still think he will have no problems with 35" but want to prove my point hat what works for a 2001 will not nesisarily work for a 97
