Your torsion keys are going to kill your truck. Take them off, seriously.

They are literally like 1 to 2 inch difference. It will put a little wear on my truck but not destroy it.

Lol. The little you know. There's a member that has keys and he has been through so many front end parts it's not even funny.

may want to look at this before the 35
http://www.fordrangerforum.com/wheel...tio-guide.html
you should regear for 35.

and take off the keys........

or don't take the advice of others who have tried....

and have had bad experiences.

With what I have read in this thread - you need to stick to 33's.

35's are no joke on these baby trucks. Half-assing things will just destroy your truck.

Even if you could fit 35's - it doesn't mean you should.

Got to pay to play people.

lol - Huge Negative. Like they said, even if you could physically fit them, you don't want to run them on the factory axles.

I have a 3" body lift & the 5.5" RCD coilover suspension lift and I run 35's.

Why not just roll some duct tape around your tires until they get to be 39s if you don't want to spend a lot of money?

Man I ask you guys a question and for advice not for you to tell me whats wrong with my truck and to tell me to take stuff off. Some of you are acting like what I'm asking is the most stupid question. I thought this forum was for help but I found out its filled with so many ass holes. There is one or to people that actually answered my question without giving me shit or acting like I'm stupid. I come from mustangs to trucks. Thanks for the help *******s. I was trying to learn something.
