Where did you get your 3in BL?

I've been browsing 3 in BL for an 03 Ranger 4x4 and the prices vary by a good amount. What website did you use to order your bl? PA has it listed at 250, but carwholesale has it listed at 199 and its by PA Never heard of carwholesale so dont want to order without researching first.

Where did you get yours from and for how much?


Thanks

On the front two bushings that the bolt goes through has to be drilled out with a 1/2" bit be cause the bolt towards the head is a 1/4 of an inch thicker than the stock bolts

What I did was put a pipe wrench on the metal ring and went to town. that was only cause I sprayed some lube on the bolt. But if you haven't soaked it take your torch and heat the bolt up untill the sleeve starts smoking and then put the socket on and a glove on and start getting it.
