Pictures are a little distorted but all in all it looks good.
 






looks good really close to how mine looks.
 






get 33x10.5s and put them on the stock wheels


edit: just noticed you have centerlines... nevermind ;) but you can still use 33x10.5s :D :thumbsup:

I don't think 33's would fit. I don't want to cut metal, but I have been thinking about glass fenders. :) 32's are probably my best bet.

sorry I'm not trying to copy anyone, but I do envy yours and section 525.
 






timmac06..where did u get that roof rack?
 






I personally say put on 33s...either 10.50 or 12.50. With the 10.50s, you most likely won't be cutting metal. Probably just some plastic (inner fender) cutting. Looks pretty good though. :thumbsup:
 






nice x u got there tim keep up the good work
 






im going to have to agree i have your same setup and i got 33x12.5s on mine and i dont regret it at all its worth it to make them fit ... im glad i grew some balls and didnt get 32s they arent worth it when 33s will fit with prolly only plastic cutting... i didnt have to cut a thing .... get 33s.... U WONT REGRET IT! :D :thumbsup:
 






Where did you pick up your Centerline rims?
 












Definitely looks nice.
 






looks awesome.
 






Where did you get the body lift ???? :)
 






re

that looks real good
 












Looks great. I'd go 33s. Reminds me of this old pic of Section's rig:

where did you get the parts for the lift?

The 3 inch body lift is a lift kit for the Ranger from Performance Accessories. The 2'' suspension lift is merely new lift shackles in the rear and a twist of the torsion bars up front.

1995 explorer lift

so I can use that same lift on my 1995 explorer sport? I did the same thing as the shackles and twist but when I do the twist I get this horriable front end squeaking noise... do you have any other pics of your rig?

thanks man
