I am wondering what size tire I can go to on a 2006 Ranger 4x4 FX4 if I do a 3" body lift?

I will still want an A/T tire not a crazy mud crawling rock climbing tire, just a normal all terrain.

I have found a 3" body lift kit that says no new shocks, spindles, etc are needed, its all bolt on. My ram and toyota had to have all new parts. Is the ranger just that much more sweet, or will I actually need new parts?

I want to also keep the factory Rims as I think they :rock:

Body lift you need the kit (blocks/bolts/brackets) steering extension and shifter extension (if manual). No new shocks are needed.

Most people run 33s after a body lift and I wanna say most people do a slight torsion crank (if not already done).

1. can I do 33's or likes on factory rims?
2. torsion crank????
3. What is the biggest tire I can fit without a lift?

Thanks

33x10.5s would work, not sure about the 12.5s though someone else can let ya know on that one.

The two bars running lengthwise on each side of your truck underneath are torsion bars, that is you front suspension, you can crank them for another 1-2" of lift.

I have 32s with no lift, with some rubbing.

TECHNICALLY you can run the 12.5s on a factory 7" wheel but from a tire wear standpoint I wouldn't recommend it. I have my 12.5s on 8" and I wouldn't go any smaller. I think 31 is the largest w/o lift. My honest opinion is if you EVER plan on lifting just lift it and get big tires... if you NEVER plan on lifting then go ahead and step the tires up a bit. Otherwise you'll increase your tire size, want a lift, then increase your tire size again and that's a waste of money.. I recommend doing it right the first time.
