    Trying to decide which kit I want. Not really looking to change tire or wheel size. 2019 Ford Ranger Lariat with the 17 inch sport rims. Will the bds 2 inch kit change the stance enough without jpsizing tires. Thoughts?

    You don't have to change the tires size to get a level kit. Here's a picture right after I had mine done,it's an RC 2.5" level on the stock Hankook 265/65/17's and sport wheels. I did change out my tires but only because I wanted a more beefier tire for off roading.

    Here is a flick of my Ranger with the 21/2 inch level kit , it brings the front up to within 1 inch to 3/4 of the tire to bottom of the fender flair. My tires are 245/70/17s there diameter is supposed to be 30.8 inches. Here is another front shot.
    As said by AZ , you do not have to upsize your tires to get the look of beefier truck just the level kit is enough my tires are an mud terrain big horn load range D instead of a P or C range that gives the Ranger heavier tire for off and on road travel and only adds 48 lbs to the weight above what the 255/65/17 standard tire.
    Les Schwab Tires did my Fabtech 21/2 inch kit for me with a wheel alignment for 374.00 and it handles great and rides great as well along with a great look; in my opinion anyway.

    Do whatever looks good to you and puts a smile on your face

    2 inch ReadyLift on stock 17 inch wheels. Actual lift was no more than 1.5 inches.
