Okay to actually make up a list I want to do at this point, in no specific order
Obviously some of these things might not happen but it's all goals

-31" Tires, Bfgoodrich all terrain ko2 or Goodyear Duratrac
-4" spindles to replace the coil spacers
-2" blocks to add to my 2" shackles, not a fan of level or rake
-Bilstein Shocks all the way around
-Silver non rise cap, with explorer rails, maybe a roof rack but idk yet
-Make a camping setup inside the cap, a bed covering half the box over the wheel well
-Bedline the box and touch up the back bumper/fenders
-Halo Spyder headlights
-Oem fogs with hids
-4 Hella 500 black magic lights mounted across the bumper with hids
-Limited slip diff or a locker
-Powerdome hood
-Tint windows, 35% sides, 5% back, 5% on the cap windows
-Pionner AVH-P3300Bt double din radio, dvd, navigation etc, $100 from a co worker
-Amp my door speakers, already have the amp
-Explorer full length center console
-Igge seat covers, black and grey colour, leather material
-Xlt door panels with map pockets
-Scangauge
-Cb radio
-Led lights in gauges, still green
-Command start for the nasty winter mornings

Well I might be getting this cap, no promises. It's a century, already colour matched, non rise with windows, everything i wanted!

Even the lock works

If I do get it i want to make it into a camping shell, with a bed over the wheel well with storage under the bed etc. It would have been nice for camping this weekend..

Cool man. I just got a cap for my 250.. in the process of repainting it. I envy you finding one the same color. I want one for the Ranger too but it's hard to find a step side one.

I've defiantly thought about it, forsure explorer rails then I'd take it from there

Amazon.com: Ford Ranger 4x2 Truck 4 Amazon.com: Ford Ranger 4x2 Truck 4" Front Lift Spindles: Automotive

These would work right? Claims free shipping to my address so $285 is not bad!

Now for the rear, I want 2" blocks with the longer U-bolts, where can I get some good ones for Canada?
Would this work? The years are off but I'm not sure if it matters http://www.summitracing.com/int/part...er?prefilter=1

Those spindles look correct, I'd be weary of using blocks since you're gonna have some axle wrap. If you do go with blocks, avoid the cheap aluminum ones.

The spindles work but shipping to my place being canada is another couple hundred, found another kit for $309 with shipping, it inculdes the same shackles i already have but i could sell them to my dad for his ranger

As for blocks, i know i'd get some axle wrap but its better then a stiff ride with aal imo, and no aluminum blocks

You might want the AAL to help out with the added weight of the cap you're looking at getting.

Honestly I never really noticed a difference in the ride of mine before and after. A lot of ride stiffness is going to be in the shocks that you use

Built a trailer for me and friend to haul our quads on, it's a 6.6' x 8'. It's pretty light weight which was key for my little 4 Cylinder(tow rating of 2250)


Best pictures of the finished product before my dad took it to his house, guess Rangers just run in the family


Only other plan is to mount an action packer to the tongue to keep all our straps etc

Are you putting any rails on the trailer? What are you doing for ramps?

Side rails? Nope, for the ramps we're just using my old 6.5' ones, we drilled holes through the tops of them and all along the top of the trailer so you just line it up and put the spike/nail through, under the trailer we made a slot to keep them while driving
