Who's Runnin' 35's?

If you have 35's on your Ranger, how are they working for you? How long have you been running them? Any problems with CV joints, inner tie rods, ball joints, etc?

I want to install the RCD kit on my 2003 XLT 4x4, but really want to go bigger than the suggested 33's. All insight and experience is needed. Thanks!

I say if you go RCD and body lift get some 36's or 37's if they fit.

I have 35s and my truck is going great. No problems, still relatively fast. I heard you can run 35s just fine with only the RCD lift.

How long have you been running your 35's without problems? What year is your rig and what lift setup do you have?

2004 Ranger FX4 (4x4 with offroad package).

FX4 doesn't add any lift height, just means I have limited slip and skid plates throughout.

I have a 3 inch body lift, front bumper removed(because I was sent the wrong brackets by performance accessories, but i offroad MUCH better without front bumper). Also, I cranked my T-bars(a mod that makes your ride stiffer but raises your front an inch or two).


My tires do occasionally rub when I'm making turns, whether offroading or with a fat person in the right seat. BUT, it doesn't do it often at all.


Oh, I put the 35s on in september 06. During a tornado haha.

I've got 35s on my 02 FX4, with a 3" body and 4" susp. I have no rubbing at all, and the only casualty so far has been my front diff housing, which cracked due to a rock getting slammed into it.
