Taking a body lift off

For those who have taken there BLs off. anything I need to be aware off? Anything that needs bought. If I remember right there was a threaded washer that needed drilled out. Maybe need a pair of those?

if youve still got all your factory stuff, all you need to worry about is those two threaded washers. you can either try to find another pair, or bolts just long enough to run through and put a nut on them.

there shouldnt be anything that wouldnt allow the reversal. the ranger bodylift is very simple, compared to most.

Ya you could prally just slide the gas lines back together. I wil be taking my whole bed off so i am just going to put new line on.

For taking the blocks out I would prally put a jack under it to take the weight when you smack the blocks out so that it dosent crash down.


the thing that holds the rad hose from hitting the fan. Bumper brackets.

Like i said i dont think you will need to do anything with the gas lines or the front washers.

why replace the gas lines for 100 bucks when you might get a fuel cell later.

$100 for a piece of rubber?? I figured it was prally $10. Well if I get back glass I may have to extend them anyways. Not sure if it bulges in that area.

LT = Long travel. I am thinking of going with a long travel front end and rear set up. Like a prerunner. I have a thread with my plans. And with that kinda set up I do not think a BL would be a good idea to keep on. PLus I do not think it would look right.

heres my thread.....https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ad.php?t=42775
