No problems with mine, I would do it again. Only complaint is the extra length in the shifter throw, and a little extra sloppiness that came with it.

Geezzz i have a 04 with 50k:/ BUt I do not own any power tools so I never use them so it is such a lexury to use them.


When we installed zabeard life we never used heat or anything just arm power. You can install a BL in about 1/2 the time when using power tools

rangers look pretty good with BL's as far as how much frame shows underneath. My last truck was a nissan frontier and I put a 3 inch BL on it and it looked ugly as hell. You could see about a foot of frame hanging from underneath. I also had very bad squeaking noises coming from my truck over bumps, but I still think it was the bushings in my uca's over the body lift. I probably wont do it again because I will eventually go the prerunner route and LT the truck.
