ITS FINALLY DONE! ! ! WOOHOO! ! ! Before and after!!!!

I had told you guys that my wife was lifting my truck for my birthday present and after waiting on some backordered parts she followed through!

I got to bring the ranger home today, 2 days and 2000 dollars later my ranger is riding high! I am very pleased with the way it came out and now i have another 500 spent for misc. parts and nick nacks. I have never kept a vehicle this long and never put this much work into one, so i am just in shock i have a truck this nice.... please comment on the truck... My wife went through alot of crap to do this for me so i bought her a new car today.... pics are at the bottom......

I like it all! I'm not normally a fan of those wheels but they look really good on your truck. 2000 bucks for a BL and wheels and tires?

LOL Yeah I know I was just effin with him. LOL I would have done it for a grand with wheels and tires. Granted you would have to have bought the body lift and the wheels and tires would be the ones that are on my truck now. HAHA

I thought they stopped making those, but I guess you can get 'em special order? why not go with the KM2s?

anywho, looking good!

although he may have paid a lil much for the tires/wheels (i paid 1400 35s/wheels/certs)
he got a HELL of a deal on the BL installed! 4wp wanted to charge me $500 alone to install the BL..
