Default 2000 ford ranger idea

Hello all

I currently own a 2000 ford ranger 4x4 sport, with a body lift. It also has a camper shell on it, so it a little low in the back. It has 33's on it now so to put 35's on I think I would need/want new fiberglass front fenders. On the back could I get fiber glass fenders and still use the camper shell? If I can what do you think the weight difference would do to the height of the rear. Would I still need to add a helper spring?

thanks

You are probably dealing with spring sag due to age. It might be worth while looking at a new set of springs to lift the back end back to where it needs to be.

Fiberglass fenders will probably do little to adding weight to the truck or affecting ride height.

Camper shell has been on there since it was new, its always sagged. Can you use shells with replacement fenders though?

I don't think I've ever seen glass fenders with a shell, so I don't know.

but yes you could just get an aal or even better explorer springs
