Default New to Rangers want to put a 3 inch body lift on to fit bigger tires

hey guys,
i have a 2005 xlt 4x4 and i can't afford a suspension lift so i'm just going to get a 3 inch body lift will those 3 inches allow me to put 33 inch tires on?

I have seen people do it after they cranked their T bars along with a body lift, I'm not sure if 33's will fit with just the body lift alone though.

You'll be good to go, 3" body lift & 33s is a great looking setup IMHO.

On my '01, I tried to run my 33x12.5x15's with just a 3" body lift and it rubbed horribly. After about a roughly 1" t-bar crank, I still have a slight rub @ full lock to the left. To the right it's fine(???).

3" bl 15x10s 33x13.50s slight t-bar crank and just very minor trimming on the valance and they clear just fine if you get 15x8's or run stock wheels you should clear no problem at all

I'm running 33's with just a T-Bar crank and I removed the front mud flaps and brackets and there is no rub at all.

95% of the lifted trucks on here are body lifted with 33's so yes, you'll be fine.

x2. My 33's(32's according to some) fit fine. When I'm in need of new tires though I think I'll be doing a body lift with 33x13.50 Toyo's.

Same, Ive been looking at some body lifts and I think I'll be getting one in the near future. What are some of the more popular ones?

Gee, thanks... I'm aware how to use the search function, however most of the threads ive looked at dont mention any brand names and most signatures only list the body lift as "3in BL" or something like that
