It's a 2wd, and a long(er) travel setup... Stick to 33's unless you like trimming fender or cutting tires.

yeah, 5.5 lift.

5 more inches of travel it does not get. the kit gets maybe 10" tops. i doubt stock rangers get 5" of suspension travel.

Actually no. I found this site to be extremely useful. I figured I'd join up, and then just started messing with Neo. No relation to what you're saying.

Problem?
Yes they will "fit" as long as you don't leave the perfectly smooth asphalt or hit a speed bump at over 5mph.

I have 35's with my camburg 5.5 kit, with fiberglass and a body lift. If you use it right even this setup can still rub when you land unevenly.

Man, he's gone through mud holes without a problem. Sure, if you jump the damn truck it's gonna rub. But if you run it normally on/off road, then there won't be a problem at all.
