Question...

Now this may be a dumb question but, i was wondering since my truck is extended cab, if i decided to get some 31's will that look small on the truck?, because im really looking for a fairly good Increase in size and looks with the 31's.. I cant go much up from the 31's so i cant go with the 33's. I just want the truck to look real aggressive and a big upgrade from the 225/75/15's.. anyone with a 94 extended cab ranger with some pictures would be nice. thanks again.

There's my 4x4 stock height with 31x10.5x15s. You should be able to run that size tire with your truck with no problems at all. You probably won't even notice the difference. They won't make your truck look super super aggressive, but they are a good size tire and would be a nice addition to your truck.

33s would probably be the most aggressive size you could fit on your truck, but with a 3.0L and 3.73 gears I wouldn't reccommend it! My truck had 4.10s and a 4.0 and the 33s made it a bit sluggish off the line. My recommendation to you is to go for the 31s, or if you can afford them, 32x11.5s would be feasible also.

hey, i went with the 31s, but my truck's an 01 edge with the t-bars. i think that if you get the lift blocks and do all the goodies that Stone was suggesting you might get the look you're after. anyway, here's mine on 31s
