Dirt Alliance doesn't build trucks. Just FYI. They print shirts.

Shoot... you have Dixon Brothers Racing, Camburg Engineering , Giant Motorsports, Blitzkrieg Motor Sports, Alliance Fab, the guys Trent used (BTF is it?), Link Motorsports, and so many others the name escape me at the moment. Are you looking for a suspension builder? an installer? Those make a difference.

shouldnt be anymore "difficult" for a girl to do than a guy.

im not sure how the setup is on the ranger, but you may have to take off the bed in order to get easy access to the pump.

removing the bed would be the easiest way.

yes, i suppose, but guys typically have more experience with this stuff & they're stronger. i was tryin to pull it down, the brackets only have a bolt on one side. i took the bolts out but the brackets hit the driveshaft. i don't want to take the bed off, i'm only 115, my arms are tiny

Unbolt the bed, unbolt the fuel filler, take off the cap (don't forget that one... lol) and slide the bed back a foot. Then you have easy access to all the fuel related junk. No heavy lifting required

btf is brandon & travis fabrication. as in brandon and travis being the two brothers who run that operation. They're the guys who installed and setup/tuned trent's camburg front end, as well as his cab cage. I dont know if they did the rest of his cage work as well...

its just 2 brothers out of a garage, but their work is quality for sure.
