Lol, you guys are hilarious.

I own an r1 and the same banter goes down on the R1 forum too...but in the end alot of people wind up having pretty much the same bike..same exhaust, gearing, etc etc...

Ok I am doin the lift with 33's I like the DC-1's...but I also might have some more wheelin and dealin to do, have a line on a new ranger manual with even less clicks, going to try and trade up before i start modding it to hell.

Ill post some pics once the dust settles, thanks for your input guys....think i know where to go from here.

mkay. don't hold back on asking questions, asking for opinions and what not. But remember, that little search button is your friend...use it. lol.


If you want the look of that black truck posted earlier, go to summitracing.com and look up a '98 Ford ranger...then summit brand, then you'll find the cheapest bodylift. It's the same $250-300 bodylift, but 3/4 the price and made by the same company.


Welcome to the site, and don't be a stranger.

The first mod any Ranger owner shoudl first do is 100% free, and only takes a pair of pliers:

The Fog Light w/ High Beams mod - best mod you can do!

FYI i did use the search if you look in the howto thread, how many stickies are there? I asked for help as to what I should do first not how to do it.... I am sure there some people on here who could offer the perspectve of "if I could do it all over again I would start with...."

Id rather ask for advice straight up from other owners... personally i like to give advice to others on the things i feel i am competent in understanding or have experience with. You could always just refuse to post advice if you feel i am being "lazy", after all without posts and discussion, there is no forum.

I wont be stranger everyone seems pretty cool here
