Ford areostar or any ranger should work for ya. Mines out of the junkyard from a ranger, my spares off a areostar. Or the other way around..the areostars on their and the rangers a spare.

I also have some rancho adjustables and some. Pro comp mx6s for sale. Pro comps were nicer, just too long for me.

I picked one off an aerostar and it worked out fine! I still have to go back to one of the shops they welded the shock mounts upside down. :/

I'm rolling stock 15x7 "sawblades". And 2" spacers up front to clear my wj swap & 1.25 or 1.5" spacers rear. If you run stock wheels you need a 7/8" spacer to clear the calipers...or else they'll rub em.

Personally the dwindows I had were. HEAVY. I wanted steelies though.. I always liked the sawblade steelies. So I did them with spacers. I vote against aluminum wheels cause if you smash one, they will cracked or shatter. A steel one will bend. And mostly likely can be bent back with a hammer or rock to get it drive able at least.

I recently bought 31s bfg a/t for my truck last september which has 16" rims although they are 6 lug.. what would I need to do to make it work? I was planning 35s but my 31s could see alot of life left their only 80% tread ,I never really like aluminum but instead of buying new tires I could get some decent rims especially now sinec im running 4:56s

You'd have to buy 16s in 5x4.5 pattern...or adapters.... Honestly I wouldn't run 16s...on 35s I "may" bump up. To 17s because all the desert race trucks run 35/17s...so their new or lightly used tires are cheap and easy to come buy.. But only for that reason.
I'm o 33s and will be forever so 15s is what I'm running.
