Default 215/75/r15- 31/1050/15

Alot of people on here are tbar cranking there trucks but my stock tire size is 215/75/15 and they have to go i was thinking cranking the tbars slapping 31s and uprgrading suspension and front driveshafts
Or should i just break down and look into body lifts just to be safe cause how small the stock tires are

Im glad you posted this. I also have an '01 Ranger 4x4 with 4.0. I will need new tires soon and wanted to step up to 31-10.50-15s but wasn't sure how they would fit. I would also like to lift the front a little (just enough to level the truck) but I would hate to spend the $$$ to get a leveling or lifting kit. I've thought about the torsion bars but I'm not sure how this will affect the truck (ride, wear and tear, etc.) as Im not very familiar with it.

Look into 265/75/r15 too. Theyre 31s, just tend to be cheaper.
