Default Tires and lift

looking at trading my wrangler and getting something with better gas and a bed so ive been looking at 98-06 rangers. so what options are there for a 4wd lift and how much of a lift to run a 32" or 33" tire and how will the axels hold up with a bigger tire


Thanks, Zach

How bad are the mpgs on the wrangler?? You can run 32s on just a t-bar crank. no need to lift the rear, it will look super stink bug ass in the air IMO.
