ok thanks guys. bodylift is done...well except the rear bumper. I can't figure out the brackets and how thebumper bolts up to them. I've tried it like 40 times but other than that the lift went fairly well. Me and my friend pulled an all-nighter last night and put about 12 hours into it. I was someone would mail PA about their intructions they suck. No pictures or anything. Tires are gunna be mounted tonight and I'll make a thread....that is after I get this damn rear bumper figured out.

Instructions might say to put the angle brackets back on, but they are way too long to do that. So.....all the 3" PA's rangers i've seen are just these brackets.
