You can do a 3" body lift for about $200.

junk, if you want to save money and get a 3" lift, go with a body lift. There is nothing bad about them.

Crank the stock bars and add a body lift. This will let you run a 35" tire if you want. Aftermarket keys are a waste of money.

Yea I don't think so; a 33" tire, but not a 35.

With the amount of guys running 33's with just the bar crank and a few running 33's stock, 35's will fit with the body lift and bar crank....just look around the forum......



tbar crank, 3" body lift and 35" procomps

What ever happened to Ranger Interceptor by the way???

I wouldn't run 35's on just a body lift, not enough room for suspension travel and you have to remove your front bumper or do major cutting.
