Biggest Tires/Rims that'll fit without a lift?

I currently have an 03 Ranger XL (2wd) and was looking for some bigger tires/rims. I was wondering how big I can go without getting a lift or any other mods? Thanks for the help. Tire/Rim recommendations are also appreciated.

Searchhhhhh 9 times out of 10 someone else has done this. If you can't find it make a thread about 'How to fit 32s on XL' PM 07Ranger, I think he has 32s on a coilsprung.

Skyjacker lift springs and a shackle in the rear will give him a better ride. Pretty cheap too, check summitracing.com for prices.

No it will make a bigger distance. Will make your leafs sit lower than they were raising the truck

Yeah 31s will fit, you might have to trim a little bit but it varies from truck to truck.
