I only say correct because you can align it so you dont have camber issues with the djm arms.

You looking at 400 or so. Well worth it and it will ride better.

yea i remember you telling me about how they help with alignment (when i was still jgibbs on here). my truck is aligned rite now, but its maxed out on the camber setting.

if i get this summer job im interviewing for on sunday, ill add the djm arms to my list of parts to get with my first few checks. I think when the front is lower it will make the truck look much better. along with the engine mods this summer the truck is going to be a lot of fun to drive!

do you happen to have a cardomain or something so I could see some pics of how your truck looks compared to mine now?

most recent pics of my truck.

keep in mind though mine is an extended cab so it drops more than a regular cab will with the same drop around .5 to an inch..

If you wanted a ricer sound, why did you buy a ranger? Honestly, I can get you a honda motor if that's the sound you're after dude... Get some american exhaust for an american truck. Please.

I have a buddy who put a stainless steel plate around his when he did it

DUDE! Those sliders are awesome! I love how he extended it all the way to the wheel well.

And that exit for the exhaust looks damn good. Props to that truck.

And soundmaster get your lockers/lift first. You can get the exhaust done after.

Thanks for the pics! on a lowered truck the offset doesn’t look as bad.. so it opens up some more options..

Are you running spacers or different lugs?

and what car were those off of/made for?

it's a ***** to find rims I like that fit over the dust caps and that don’t require spacers..

im not running spacers. I am running different lugs. They are very skinny conical seat lugs that cost 35 bucks a set at advance auto. the whole set is of locks and comes with the special adapter to use with your stock tire iron.

they came off a 2000 mustang gt that had a lot of work done to it.

i had to have the center of the front rims bored out so they would mate up to the hub without running spacers.

I want to get the caps. I know they will fit fine on the back, but the front might not work since the dust caps still out so far. is there any way I can change dust caps to shallower ones?!

you can bend it in a little, not to much because it will rub.

Man a Bassani and Magnaflow would sound so much better on your truck. I know you like what you have now but I think you would like those so much better. That and a different rollpan and rims and your truck will have real potential.
