Default 6" closer to heaven?

Found the absolute coolest place in the world, Hands on Garage in Milwaukee.

I managed to finally finish installing the 6" lift i've been acquiring parts for the last 2 or 3 months.

Before:



Here is the finished product:



- 2" coils
- 4" spindles
- AAL
- Shackles
- 33x12.5x15 BFG ATs
- 15x10 Summit rims

How much do the tires stick out? I have 15x10 and with no flares I think they stick out to far.

Did you use 2" lift coils? Or did you use spacers?

----------

Also did you have to get new UCAs?

Which coils did u use? I wana 2 inch up my 2010 2.3 coiled ranger to level it. Frieken ORW in el cajon are idiots, they say theres no lift availables for my 2010 2.3 coil ranger... dont they know the 2.5 kit ffrom fabtech for a 2000 fits my 2010 2.3 coiled ranger........ i wonder if its a liability thing since fabtech has no official lift for newer rangers.... anyone know or works for orw in san diego??? Or anyone in sandiego work at a suspension shop that can level out my ranget with new coils?
