Tire Size!

So, I finally lifted my 2wd truck. (Got enough crap about that from the idiots around here) and I'm in a little bind.

I have a set of 35s that I know wont fit without a body lift and some fabrication of the rear (The guy I had do the SL wont do a BL, even though he told me to go ahead and purchase it, which I did.)

So, my Ranger now sits at the stock ride of a 4x4 Ranger, correct? And without the body lift, WITH Fender Flares 3'' by 3'' in the front, what size will fit all the way around? I was doin' the math, and 31s seem about the only size that will, any help would be appreciated.

Also. Anyone know where I can get the 4X2 stickers?

the bigger the better! looks great. hope you get those fenders painted! my buddies still laugh at my prerunner fenders, i tried to spraypaint them. the bodyshop i went to said i'd have really bad air bubbles with the bake on system he used. check out dixonbrosracing.com they have an AWESOME tube bumper that will match those flare fenders. its like $600 with the powder coat.

I actually don't rub much. So they'll be fine. I'm getting new ones in October, as these hardly have any tread left. I'm stoked that they're finally on. Ontop of the three inch lift in the rear, I'm going to put a block lift back there so my truck doesn't look like a cat (or dog) rubbin' its butt across the carpet.

As for the front goes. I'm going to paint them very soon. Thinkin' about using a high gloss Duplicolor and putting a few coats on. And the bumper? I'm getting one fabbed. Thanks again!
