That's the same size as I ran on my '05' ext cab 4x4, stock. Barely touched the plastic inner liner at full lock.

Im going to refer you to our tech library ^(above)^ so you can do a little reading and find out all the information that you need is w/in your grasp.

In my honest opinion, if you're making a prerunner ranger, stick with the 96. It's tons cheaper to get results with the older style suspension.

Sorry if im bugging , (i feel i am ) but after consulting with my local tire guy , he told me i can fit 235/75r15"s on my stock suspension. my concern is ,( if i get a 2in leveling kit for front and 2inch blocks for rear) , will the tires look too small.
