I need your help! Please! :)

Alright, I have a 03 ranger edge, 3.0 stepside, automatic. I received my 3" spindle lift and 2" aal. The torsion bars are cranked so it sits level already.

I can not decide if I want to run 35's or 33's. Im probably just going to go with bfg all terrains, because I don't want the vibration other tires give. I am 18, I drive my truck to friends places, to school, to get anywhere, I don't really use it to haul anything, but on occasion we do go out to the lake and I have to tow a jetski trailer.

If I leave my stock gears in for awhile, are 35's going to be that bad? I am on 4.10's. I really need help deciding, I wanted to go big, and run 35's but I do need some practicallity too. So if I could have your opinion on what to run under my truck, I would greatly appreciate it!! Thank you! :)

My 03 3.0 with 4.10's is gutless enough with stock tires.I wouldn't go bigger than 33.
Did you check the sticky at the top of this forum ?

unless you're going to regear to 4.56s stay away from the 35s, that and 33s are gonna look and perform better anyway!

I have to disagree for alil bit here Im on 3" with 35's and 4.10's Its actually not that bad. You will lose a bit of gas mileage. But if still got some power and torque, I have 4.56's sitting on my bed room floor Im just waiting to order my locker before I install them.

Is that with a 3.0 or a 4.0?

I have to go along with everyone else...with a 3.0 stay with the 33's.

Haha, theres a difference between living once, and money... hhaa, if I had the money I would do a 3" body lift, on top of the spindle lift and regear and 38's all at once, but thats not gonna work, and it does sorta need to be practical ahha, thanks though 99ranger!

I had a 3.0 5-speed with some mods and 4.10s and I ran 33's just fine. 35's would have been too much for me, 33's were just fine.

Damn I regret getting rid of my truck:(
