New Ranger... Lift and Tire Questions..
I am new here. Just bought a 2001 RANGER EXT CAB XLT 4X4 OFF-ROAD. I have been looking around at options for my new to me Ranger. I have looked through the forum and other websites and have got lots of info, but it seemed easier to ask you all what to do with it.
I live in Phoenix and will be driving over rocky, dry terrain. Also, going to Sedona in the summers, Mix Terrain. Occasional trips to Glamis Dunes as well. I want the most flex and travel possible with the lowest cost right now. Later I will spend more on stuff.
I am looking to raise it slightly (2-4”) as cheaply as possible with still being able off road. I was thinking T-Bar crank, and Add-a-Leaf, explorer leafs, or sport trac leafs?
Also, with doing this I would like to put black wheels and larger tires on. I want the stance to be wide as well. I was thinking 16x8 inch rim with low (2.5”) backspacing or a 16x10 inch rim with 4” backspacing.
With that being said what do yall suggest? What size tires could I go with? Where is a good spot to get good A/T tires and/or wheels at reasonable cost?
Thank you all so much!
