SAS already?! lol, did you JUST get the superlift installed?

As for fender flares, bushwhacker makes several different styles for our trucks. They are expensive, and i havent seen too many pics of them on Rangers.

You don't really understand the cops in Corvallis man... They will pull you over for anything. I wasn't running a front plate and got pulled over.. and while I was pulled over he decided to check my clearance in the rear on the tires... I was "5-1/2in" away from legal, I think is what he said.. No joke.. (Tire showing from the ground to the bottom of the bumper... 27 is legal)

while were on the fender flare conversation since my ranger didnt come with the real render flares it came with cheap like chrome trim and the dealership who had it cleared witht hem on so it left a small lip of clear so i was planning on buying some 00 model fender flares from a junk yard how hard would it be to drill the holes to mount them?

i know when ever i make my way to Moab though.. i'm getting pulled over. my buddy has a yoda, SAS'd on 35s, dove tailed and bobbed... he got pulled over for no mud flaps and something about the tires sticking out too far, the way he described it is "your going to get pulled over if you go to moab"
