Exclamation ?? Questions! ??

ok so i just bought my ford and i figured if i bought a fairly new for there would be alot out there, as in lifts and bumpers and all that. and for my first question is there anyway i could make my ford ranger look more like and edge type of body like bumper wise i know here to get the grill but cant find that bumper. and second i know you guys know what looks good and what size tires would work and all that so i was wondering how big of a lift i should get and what the best type of lift to get so that i can get my truck sitting a little higher and ut some big tires on there! i saw zachs ranger and thats pretty much how i want mine to look height wise and tire size. any ideas?

I dont believe you can go too high with a 2wd, You could do 32" tires and check out LMCtruck.com to llok at bumpers and valances. If you order from them they charge alot for shipping so get an idea from there and check out ebay for that and lifts. Check summitracing.com for a lift kit as well

I'm not real sure on 2wd. I have 4wd and pretty much maxxed at 4 inch suspension and 3 inch body lift. I think you may be able to get away with 32" tires for 2wd truck but I dont know if it will be too much stress on the rear or tranny

you could do a suspension lift, it requires explorer leafs/belltec 6400 shackles/ doesch spindles 3 inches of lift
you coulees also add a bodylift if its what you like and that will add 2-3 more inches for a total of 5-6 inches.
