I drove a double lifted Ranger today....

and it was awesome!! I was sitting way up high like a big rig driver, but had tons of power. Body roll was a little more than I’d like, but its just the price you pay. The stage 9000 clutch was hard to get used to as my ranger has a stock one. The 35inch tires towered over the cars i passed. I drove by a Smart car, and i wanted to roll over it, but knew better. I drove by all these hotties, and one threw her bra at me...i was a total celebrity.

It makes me want to lift my truck...

Power and fast should not be used in the same sentence when speaking about a double lifted ranger on 35's.

Trust me, it just ain't gonna happen. That's why I sold mine! Well...and because they can't tow a 5th wheel too well

Do you know what Grant drives? 115hp 2.5L 4cyl 5spd. My 4.0 isn't even running right yet, and it's a race car compared to grant's truck. Just don't ask to have a mileage competition... I'd be 100miles behind him on the side of the road and out of fuel! lol!

btw...4.88's make 35's feel fast. lol. Still ain't no competition compared to Marie's '08. :(

"Fast" and "faster than mine" aren't the same thing. I used to drive a 3.0, when I got a 4.0 I thought it was fast. Then this summer I had a chance to put a few miles on an F-150 Lightning... Now a stock 4.0 feels wimpy.
