I am not sure why everyone wants their tires to stick out from the body now but I would not and it might not be legal in a particular state. There are some nice wheel flare kits that would cover the tires.
I'm not a huge fan of wheels sticking out past fender flares, and it might get in you in trouble depending on what state you live in, but your truck and your life !So the reason I got my Colorado was this picture of this Ranger. Long story short Ford want $5k market adjustment over MSRP and Chevy went $4k under for my Z71... so yea easy choice.

The truck is just leveled, I put a Eibach Stage 1 kit and a 1" block in the rear so I'm right on par or even a little higher there.
So at this point I just need to figure out wheels and tires... right? Essentially, from the looking around I've been doing I need get wheels with the offset that'll allow them to sit a little wider than the body and beefy tires. Only other detail I know is that the tires on the ranger BFG KM3's. My Z71 midnight has Wrangler Duratrac's which are pretty beefy so I wouldn't be opposed to sticking with them but not necessary.
Lastly, I did order Bora spacers to see how it looks but I'm honestly not too keen on using spacer too long term...
Thanks all! P.S. if the photo of a Ranger bothers you my bad lol
What part of Pa are you from?At least here in PA,
For spacers, I recommend you install them very carefully and ensure you cut down the stock studs appropriately.THANKS EVERYONE! A couple things I'd like to clarify;
when I said "I need get wheels with the offset that'll allow them to sit a little wider than the body and beefy tires" I really just meant ever-so-slightly. Nothing crazy at all, if anything closer to flush with the fenders.
I am aware of certain states having laws about this; if I were to have something the extended beyond that body that much I would absolutely get fender flares or mud flaps for the respect to others on the road, the law I'm not all too worried about... This is America right (/s).
Again, thanks everyone for the help. I'm doing to see how the spacers have it sitting and go from there. As @ARCowboy said, I'll be sure to re-torque them periodically. Would every rotation be frequent enough?
Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone, have fun and be safe!
What I meant there is, the Ranger just has a level, mine is raised and leveled.the truck is not "just leveled" it is raised and leveled since I take it it is now leveled after you raised the front to match the back in which you raised it up an inch.
I wonder if these are 16inch wheels on the ranger or is he running 35's as per BFG the widest that would fit your truck is 9 inches and those on the ranger look wider. the more off-set on the wheels the less diameter you can run
