                Streetfocus what kit did you buy and use?
                Some people say you HAVE to use the steering shaft extension and others say you donít. They range in price a lot too so I rather not buy what I donít need.

                  I have the performance Accessories PA70033 kit I think is the number. Yes you need the steering extension, kit comes with it, and everything you need including bumper brackets.

                      Finally pulled the trigger on tires! Super nervous when doing it because yíall know how indecisive I am. I change my mind everyday.
                      $1100 down.
                      $1100 more to go for the lift and rims. Stupid Canadian $ making that more expensive. $600USD I think it is. Iíll order that soon. Wanted to get tire tires in a bit sooner so I can look at them in awe

                          What BS is your rims? 3.75? Some people say 4 is best, some say 3.75, some say 3.5, looks like 3.75 is most common?

                          Do you have a photo of your ranger with the 15x8 with 3.75 bs

                                  I did manage to remember to measure the tire before I sold it just for reference for the new tire. About 29.5-30 inches. Decently worn so safe to assume they measured just over 30 new.

                                  I really wish I weighed them. I kept reminding myself to weigh them then as Iím driving to meet the guy I was like **** I forgot to weigh them.. oh well.
                                  At least we have a measurement !

                                    So I was driving home from work today and I was thinking haha wouldnít it be funny if I come home and my rims are there (I was thinking in the back yard, shippers have opened my gate and left stuff back there before) but I pull up and thereís 4 boxes piled on my front door step. Like thanks?! Just leave my new rims sitting on the front door step stacked up like the eiffel tower drawing peopleís attention? Not to mention the box handles were ripped open causing me to think they just grabbed them with brute force ripping the handles.

                                      So I read online that the stock Alcoa rims weighed in around 19 lbs and so I weighed the new rims that I got and they weigh in right at 17 lbs. Should be nice to help with weight of the bigger tire since most guys run 35 lbs steelies and bigger tires.

                                          I have factory 4.10 gears.
