Planning a thanksgiving dune trip and could use some advice on buying paddles. The ranger is a stock 4.0 manual. Trucks running a 33 right now but can fit and plan going to a 35. Rears leafs stock axle.
Just remember going through several different sets on the wheeler trying to find the right setup. On a budget so would like to buy one set and be done.
size, width, brand Thanks

I would look for a used set of 33-17 paddles. BUT i will say running paddles made my Tacoma a little easier to drive in the sand BUT it didn't help me go anywhere different than without paddles, and I had supercharger and power adders as well.

You would be better off spending the money on a set of aluminum wheels for your truck in the narrowest width you can find. Air down low and run it, you’ll be fine

Right on appreciate the reply’s and that was kinda the plan when going up to a 35. Planned on a 35x10.50 on a aluminum 17x7-8 ghetto beadlock (screws) or a 17x8.5-9 beadlock. I know I’m losing quite a bit on rotational mass. It’s 4x4 at the moment but plan on ditching that too.

Talk about a shock tuning nightmare we’d be bouncing all over the place lol
It’s more of a power thing kills your momentum really fast spin them fast enough to get on top.

We did a smaller paddle on a wide wheel. The smaller tire allowed our gearing to be lower and keep RPM's higher. Wide wheel for the foot print.
