You bought wheels and tires before doing the lift? they don't look too big of tires...aren't you worried about it looking super goofy after it's lifted?

If I were you, I'd go right to the tire shop and talk about making a deal for an upgrade to 33x12.50's while trading these new ones in. Might cost you a couple hundred, but at least it'll look right and you won't be stuck getting a HUGE hit if selling on craigslist when you do upgrade. Know what I'm sayin?

3" body and 33's is a very very common combo on 98+ 4wd's. shoot, stock these trucks fit 32x11.50's with just cranked bars.

x2.

3" Body lift & 33s looks great. 31s came stock with some rangers, so a lifted ranger with 31s will look a little off.

BTW, exactly what kind of lift are you getting? Not a torsion key, or a leveling kit or anything hopefully.

BFG Mud Terrains. Little more money than your AT's, but they are AWESOME tires and fairly quiet on the street. And I've never owned a better tire for high speed(aka 60+) highway driving with standing water. Awesome tires in the snow and slush as well. Great traction...sticky enough for great traction, yet not so sticky to cause lots of wear. LOTS of life in 'em too.
