.....And likely a few other things I forgot to mention.

I have yet to put on the front superlift skid plate and original skid plate above it. I also wish to fab some support bars for the rear LCA control arm, and build the mounts for the Trail Gear sliders. I also have a ding to get fixed now in the bed. It snowed hard and a family member came in the night and parked her white truck in my blind spot. It was covered by snow and I didn't know it was there, so BANG..... right into it. My beautiful truck............

Anyways. I bought the truck back in July of 2015. I put the system in it and did all the basic maintenance when purchased. During winter break is when I did all the good stuff. So far, it has all worked very well with no catastrophic failures. A few odd creeks from the front suspension since the install, and I have to pull the front diff back out to get the backspacing set properly (another thread is open on that topic). When I put it back together for the second time, I will double check all the bolts and welds for safety, and she will be golden.

The supercharger install went well, and I haven't had any problems. I am only running the 3.5 psi pulley with no tune. But I do have the intercooler, which helps. Bleeding it is quite difficult since I didn't use the bleeders on the inner radiator while it was exposed. Down the road, I plan on getting a tune, larger injectors, and putting on the 7.5 psi pulley that I already have from moddbox. I recommend Moddbox for any ranger supercharging needs. They have great customer service and expertise, and have a high quality product.

I have taken it offroad 3 times, and pushed it pretty hard. The combo of the mud tires with the lift, front and rear Torsens, and the supercharger to push it, the truck just keeps on diggin and rolling, mud or snow. It is freaking awesome.

Its getting late here, and I can't remember what else I wanted to type, so I will put all the pictures in here tomorrow night........tease....tease. Here are a few for now.

Ask away with questions and I will do my best to answer them. Many more pictures are coming.

Love the headlights, dude!

The rest of it looks sick, too. In a good way :)

EDIT: btw, I'm looking to ditch my 95 amp alternator. Where'd you get your beast of an alt?

That's refreshing to see someone build another up correctly. Good work so far.
