Finally got the beast a much needed wash, spent a good half hour just trying to get the salt off everywhere and in the process found a few spots that I'll have to touch up in summer(Back bumper is starting to rust at the very ends, might just spray the whole thing in bedliner, and inside the rear fenders some paint is starting to chip off so I'll hit that up with bedliner and do the whole section like this-


Anyway, super clean truck!

Then of course the photoshoot after




After seeing this picture I'm really debating about doing a 3" Spindle lift up front with the 2" shackles in the back for a more level look

And my personal favorite

they'd still end up costing me over $400 with shipping and taxes where the coil spacers would be $100

I know Fabtech used to have some issues in the past with their spindles. Not sure if those have been fixed or not. Crown Suspension makes some as well, but there aren't a lot of guys running them. I think that's mostly due to them just being overlooked. I plan on going with Doetsch when I get a set.

I know spindles are the best way to lift a 2wd but it's they cost so much more

The doetsch spindles require you to thread your own abs hole and require grinding of (I think) the steering stop where it comes in contact with the LCA. Don't quote me on that last part but I know you have to grind something.

Very proud of the silver bullet right now! While I was out cruising with a friend I saw a suv that had slide up onto the curb and had the front end right over the snow bank and onto the sidewalk(about a 3ft snow bank). It was pretty obvious the guy just failed at drifting as you could see the marks through the snow, anyway I hooked on to that giant suburban and managed to pull him out with lots of little jerks(I don't have a hitch and was very scared of pulling from my bumper ball).
Silver Bullet power

And some photo whoring from washing the truck earlier

Defiantly not something I'd ever want to do again, I was so scared of ripping it off, can't wait for the hitch

Updates on the truck!
-Getting a class 3 hitch installed next weekend hopefully, no more towing on the bumper
-My tailgate handle broke, went through the car wash and next morning went to open it and bang the handle broke on one side







This is what happens when your friend gets to adventurous

Coil spacers should be here anyday now, having some issues with ups and fat bobs...

Anyway! On sunday went off roading at seddons corner with a local group, BEST DAY EVER












Not stuck!

I was pretty disappointed I couldn't make it up the hill to actually see this Ranger


Kinda cool, after seddons meet up with an old friend, his truck is little more beast then mine

Finally got the spacers in! Sadly now I gotta wait till Saturday to get them and shackles on at my dads

But aren't they pretty


Sometime Hopefully soon shocks will be next, all depends how it rides after it all gets installed, plus might take off the sway bar

Looks good, and those tires don't look too small for it, so that's good considering their basically brand new right?
