Clear 35"s?

Help wanted.
I'm trying to clear 35"s. I have a 2000 Ford Ranger 2WD with a 3" Body Lift. What is the least expensive way to make it work?
Thanks
Violet

Spindle lift. Or cut the **** out of your fenders and they will fit.

I really don't want to cut the fenders. What exactly is a spindle lift? I'm new at this. Lol just got my truck a couple of days ago.

spindle lift and re-gear the rear end unless you have 4.10s (even then i'd still think about re-gearing)

or.....theres always the magical cut-off wheel and fender flares

Defiantly need a regear. At least 4.56's if not 5.13's depending on the engine size. And I would go with fabtech spindles.

I would stick with 33s if I was you. 35s will require mods to clear and I doubt you have the gears or the power to turn them.

well when I bought the truck it had 35"s on it but they were scrubbin really bad. I drove it for like 2 days like that then traded for 33"s. But I would really like the 35"s back.

I only have pics with 33s on 15x8 with 1.5" spacers but with 5" of lift in full flex my 35x12.5 on 15x10 with 3.75 is rubbing nowhere.

add 2" of lift on yours and it will probably don't rub ...use shakles or blocks for the rear and a leveling kit for the front : coil spacer if you have coils or torsion keys if you have torsion bars. U can have it for 250$ on ebay.

violet, post a pic of your truck. looks like it might be nice from your avatar.

i can't offer front suspension advice as i'm 4wd but yea, in the rear either shackles (they move your axle forward a little too), larger blocks or an AAL kit (add a leaf kit) might help.
