    Yeah, that made no sense to me either. TIG works best with the tightest fit possible.

    well more planing is in the works... i got a good tax return so in turn i decied to lift my ranger. im going with a 4in rough country lift kit, and for now 31" in tires. this summer ill get chrome rims with 32"s or 33"s. so the lift is coming soon but i have my tires and rims already, witch is makin me more and more exited for the lift to be done. working with a college budget i got used tires from unlimited off road with some brand new rims.

    heres the rim.



    rim and tire.



    and the goal look for the ranger (this has 33"s on it now and i will be there soon)



    i hope it turns out well. it will give me enough lift to get in to trouble but still be good for trips

    BIG thanks to nick at unlimited off road for you help! thats a awesome place to get your stuff from
