i've done some talking about this in a few threads, but i guess i'll see who else out there has a mean tough ranger. towing, rescue, recovery no matter what you do lets see it. photos, list of equiptment, and video if you have lighting. but lets see who all out there uses their truck like a truck.

Thanks I like to keep my fender flares attached to the truck so I went with low offset wheels they sit flush with the flares but tuck into the fenders at full flex. When we had our wheeling meet last month Shane lost 3 of 4 flares lol. The rack is a rule moab basket, 50 in load bars, 400xt towers and the 56 fit kit. The rack set up is about 800 retail.
