08 FX4 Manual has arrived

Here it is, about 6 weeks to get here.

It says I have B bars up front, and C springs on the rear from the Payload Package 2

Heres my awesome 8.8 Torsen rear end, My Rancho shocks, and a short 1 1/4" block. Now I know why 08's sit so low.

Looks great and congrats on the new truck! Those sure are some funky looking door panels! (compared to the pre-07 ranger anyways) Is that perforated leather?

yes the leather is perforated along the middle of the back and sitting area. It looks pretty cool, I thought it was going to be solid, a few more points in my book.

Thanks guys, I will most likely be getting 32's if I get 15's or 265/75's. May buy the set of Alcoa's a member here is selling.
I'm thinking going from the stock 1 1/4" block I have to a previous 2.5" 4X4 block. The 1 1/4" difference shouldn't be enough to cause any angle or shock issues, right?

Truck looks great!


Weird how they'd put in a 1 1/4" block. Never seen that before..of course i've never looked either. I might know someone who might want your stock blocks.....(trepaul86)

Should be just fine with just an inch and a half added. Shocks should be good and your pinion angle should be fine.
