Oh ok. LOL I wouldn't buy it. It's nice and all. It has a LOT of stupid little things on it that need to be taken care of.

What is the conversion rate? Unless it's at least 2:1, I don't think it's worth it. just my 2 cents.

3.0 and 7.5 and 37's! Damn. And that trail master kit is like a cheaply built Superlift.

It has a body lift aswell Those rain guards on the windows look like they are big enough for a 747. I did some research and that trailmaster is weaker than the superlift. The guy obviously didn't put much thought into except to get it in the air. I bet it still has 3.73's.

Here's the Trailmaster kit:Ford Ranger 4 Inch Suspension Lift System - Trailmaster

There is no way that truck is worth that much money. Its worth about half of that.

not worth it. $10k cn is too much. dump the roll pan, the rear end, the "stereo system", and the wind deflectors and you'd have a tolerable vehicle. a few modifications to the 3.0 would give you more than enough power for a weekend driver.

Okay so the 3.0 has to go, along with the 7.5 rear. The ricer seats would have to be replaced with proper seats. The roll pan would have to go for a factory bumper. The window "vents" would have to go, along with the back ones. The ricer tails would be used as shooting clays, and 06 tails would take their place. The list would have to go in eventually for a better constructed one.

The ONLY things I DO like are the rim and tire choice.

i was looking at that trail master kit...it doesnt come with spindles...it looks like it has something that bolts to where your wheel bearing bolt on to and then move that mounting place down...sketchy
