Well thanks man! I fried my rings in the last 6k miles of abuse, so she's gettin a heart transplant soon. That body lift is sure gonna help me squeeze that 351w in there.

Yeah that front spacer was a dead give away, but i meant to build bumper in front of it and got too lazy. And my tube notcher is a POS.


But in the end, Body Lift = best bet for the SLA rangers unless you're rich or wanna go hard core.

Define "leveling kit". They'll fit and clear nicely with 3" bodylift or 4" suspension lift. If torsion keys just stay away from those. Just crank your bars up some, throw a bodylift on and those 33's. You thank us in the long run when your replacing balljoints and binding your CV's and really rough ride. Unless you want that...

LBF's truck is a 2000 and has 33's on it. Just imagine an 01 front on it. The 98 - 07 4x4 Rangers as sit the same.

Here's a link with some good info.
https://www.rsracing.com/tech-wheel.html

From the center line of the wheel, back spacing is a measurement of how much of the wheels' width is set to the inside of the lug mounting surface. If you had two wheels of equal width, the wheel with 3.25" of backspacing is going to stick out of the wheel well further than one with 4" of back spacing.

Basically, the lower the number (in inches) of backspacing a wheel has, the more it will stick out.

Imagine the black truck on the last page with tires .5" shorter on each side of the wheel, and 1" narrower.

Pretty much the same

It would help if you posted more information about your Ranger. But no, assuming you have an edge or 4x4 Ranger your largest options are 32x11.50 or 33x10.50.

There is no "leveling kit" for a t-bar Ranger.

A t-bar twist will level it.

Your only other option for lifting just the front of a t-bar truck is the aftermarket torsion keys, and you do not want those.

They'll fit....several have done it. Most trimmed the valence and the flare and it'll likely rub the inner fender depending on wheel choice. Several have also ran 35x12.50's on just a bodylift + torsion crank truck. Most don't suggest either because it is so stuffed.
