31s will probably rub on a coilsprung truck. i guess a majority of the trucks on here are negative then because body lifts are quite popular

What you have heard is bullcrap.

There is nothing wrong with running a bodylift....run one and you can have a bigger tire. Its nothing to worry about, 2/3 of all rangers every made probably are running bodylifts.

I'm running a BL, you can kinda see my V8 from the side with it.

I can't really think of any negatives.

Bigger tire = more ground clearance, whether you clear it with suspension lift or body lift is up to you.

I ran 31s with no lift on my stock 4x2 for awhile. When I came off curbs and such they rubbed really bad and I took a piece out of the rubber on my fender once. It's close, I wouldn't go higher than 30s with no lift.

I am running a spindle lift. It was $400 for the front, plus $50 alignment kit and $50 alignment. Also you have to do rear lift and rear shocks to match. Another $100.

Not an Edge (I assume), and not a 4x4. No t-bars. 32s would rub on all sides.

What part of "He might not have t-bars" is unclear?

Unless he has the t-bar suspension then yeah he can run 33s. But most 4x2s are coil spring suspension so they can only run up to 31s.

2001 and up 2wd run the tortion bars in the front so yeah you could crank it but honestly dude jsut get a suspension lift. i spent roughly 700 for 3 inch drop spindles 1 inch coil spacers 4 shocks and blocks for the rear. yours will deffinstly be different obviously because i have coils and you have tortion.

for your truck im looking at $668 for a 4 inch $778 for a 5 inch and a little over a grand for a 6 inch
otherwise i dont think ride height changed much from the 98-2000 twd and the 01-05 2wd soo right now im funning 235/75/15 on all stock suspension and no trimming. with the 4 inch lift ill have the 33s in there. hope this helps

98+ XL and XLT 2WDs have coil spring suspension

2000 Trailhead, 01-05 Edge, and 06+ Sport have torsion bar suspension

Both can be lifted with body lifts or lift spindles. XL/XLTs can be lifted with coil spring spacers. Trailhead/Edge/Sport can have torsion bars cranked.

There ya go. Plain and simple.
