i think ud look misplaced lol 6 inches w 33s is the best id do...32s and 31s look weird w 6 inches imo ...i wouldnt even do 31s w a 3 inch body lol

----------

we need to know what motor you have and what your gears are. I ran 33's on 3.73 with the 4.0. My dads ranger struggled to turn 235's with 3.73 and a 4cyl. 5 spd.

I personally don't like the "stuffed" look. That is, 33's on a stock truck. 32's max for 3" lift IMHO. This way you can let the suspension work, it makes no sense to stick big ass tires when they rub at max flex, or close to it.

those work well if you take care of them and don't try to over extend the ball joint.

okay u should not run anything bigger than 33's (31s are even better for the gears)

you can replace the gears with 4.10s although id go w 4.56s if ur planning on getting huge tires lol but as uve said ur not so u should be fine w 31s/32s

----------

also it kind of seems like ur thinking of tire sizes is not matching up with what it actually is so ill refer u to another sticky

scroll down and look at the pictures ull see the different set ups and sizes

well i talked with the guys at suspension max today and they have another lift kit they dont have it on their website but its
upper control arms.
3" lift spring.
2" rear lift shackles.
and its gonna cost me about $400 less and i think thats gonna suit more of what i want to do so whats your thoughts on that?
