YMMV.. as in "yer mileage may vary" on tire size. Unless you have
non-stock rims , those 6" steel or 6.25" "mags" are only good for about a
235 (maybe a 245 if a 70 series.. ) max without rubbing on the sway bar
arms up front. 30.5x9.50's were on mine when I bought it, and that was the
first thing I changed. Too tall for the gearing, they rubbed, and not
worth crap in the rain!

As for brand, that depends on intended use (and not what you want it to
look like... big meats do not make it a better 4 wheeler UNLESS the DRIVER
knows how to use them!)

I'm running Les Schwab Wildcats (old style) in 4 ply right now, but for my
driving I wished I'd waited until the Wrangler ATS came out!
Doesn't impress by looks, but rain/ ice/ snow and moderate NW WA Cascades
radio site trails are great on the wurk 4by.
But that's MY opinion...

Subject: FTE Small - Air Box

Hi,

I was wondering of any of you have ever found a better induction system for the 3.0L engine on the ranger. I own a 1992 with the 3.0L, and to me, it seems like the air box/intake leaves a lot to be desired as far as cool air flow is concerned. Also, there is not any after-market products that were designed to work with that engine as far as induction is concerned (Or at least none that I'm aware of anyway..). So Im thinking of making a rig myself...Any suggestions ??

Thanks in advance,
Steve
