i have a '86 basicly the same thing as a '89-'93 except front end design with
3" body lift with 32x11.50s and they don't rub. the computer i'm on sucks and i can't copy and paste but you can look at my myspace page to see some pics of it.

Here is my '85 with 235/75-15's and a 3" bodylift. The rear springs are whooped so it sits level. Even level I think 31's would be tight on mine, for some reason I think the 89-92 trucks have bigger front fender wells.

92 with a 2" lift and leveling spacers in the front with 31's




The 31's fit before the lift and level, but the fenders were cut too.

My exact setup . Ranger #2 has a 3" body lift, 3" blocks in the rear, and stacked, welded washer coil spacers (~1.5") in the front. ~5" lift. Running 32x10.50 swamper radials, I have no rub on anything, even at full stuff and full lock. My D28 Ujoints hate that. No pics tho; I don't have a digital camera. Hope this helps.
