search "torsion key". There was an active thread a couple days ago where I went in depth in theory and explained it all.

I'd suggest bodylifting it for 33's. Most that put 33's on a torsion cranked truck are either a: have body damage from wheelin' or b: are street pounders. No matter, you'll rub inner fender and will have to trim the valence.

I think the extra inch of width is more noticeable than an extra inch of diameter.....

32x11.50 looks great on a 15x8 wheel...I think 33x10.50 looks way too pizza cutter like.


Here's mine back in the day with 32x11.50's on 15x8 w/ a minimal torsion crank to level it out...

Default Re: Ford Ranger lift? I would like to fit 33's .?

ok, now i got a question. i got a 00 ranger, exactly like LBF's. stepside, xlt, all that. now currently suspension is bone stock. i got on 265/75/r16 bighorns on, which converted into standard measurement is 31.6/10.4. i got a TINY bit of rubbing, but you cant really notice it and only at full steering lock. since theyre almost 1.5" from 33s, i should fit 33s with a bl with space to spare for wheelin right? and i may think of crankin the t bars, but idk how much is too much.
