little bit, I just took a set of factory flares, marked and cut around those with a dremel (nice smooth cut... but never again... lol), it's not needed to fit the 37's, but a 37 will not fit into the fender.

At the time I cut them I was building a set of axles to put under it to run 42's , wound up selling them and putting 37's on.

so you run 37s on stock axles? I'm guess this isn't your daily driver but how bad do the 37s wear things out? Like bearings and joints and such

Running 37s on stock axles is genius! They only came with a 29in tire from stock so it'll totally handle those 37s fine right? Wrong. That's just dumb.. and trust me. Any place where you NEED 37s, your ifs ranger won't go.

4.56 minimum, 4.88 if you want some power back. Search, it's a common question.

With the auto he won't need as low of gears as you would in a manual where you will just burn through clutches with higher factory gears

It's not yours so why worry about it?

I don't have front axles lol rear is a 8.8 front is doestch spindles, not my daily anymore but it used to be, only thing I've had to replace is the lower ball joints once so far but it was time for em anyway, other than that nothing, almost time for new uppers tho, and considering they're the stock ones I think that's pretty good.

You have some pretty good input.... sometimes.

I looked through your thread to try and see if you have 33's or 35's on your IFS but didn't feel like reading through 250 pages just to figure it out, but I'll ask this, what's more genius staying on the ground with 37's or hopping little hills and getting air with 33's or 35's?

Yes rangers come with 29's stock, Dana 60 one tons come with 32's stock...

Don't knock 37's till you try it... I've been running 37's longer than you've had your truck.

As far as not being able to go anywhere that 37's are needed, maybe, just maybe, the terrain differs just a little bit in GA from what CA has...
