Well the aftermarket keys it seems that everyone hates them, I dont know about how Ford is but I have done plenty of Chevies without a prob. Now if it was me I would do a BL but you had said you didnt want to do it, or I would crank the stock bars and run a 20x8 rim with a 32x11.50 tire a 33 may rub a bit.

i have been lookin at the radiator on my 99 ranger and it seems like it has a box around the bottom so idk if it would cause a over heating problem. what you think?

They won't rub if they have the right backspacing even on 20x10s

Pretty much.

Plus the fact that you can get almost the same benefits for free.

they are only terrible if you crank them over what the key is made for if you take a 3" key and bottom out the bolt yet it will mess things up however if you follow the instructions and use the 3" key for 3"s they work fine albiet you gain all of 1/2" vs the stock keys maxed

4" would be better 5" will rub the frame.
