sweet no more rubbing problems when i flex

thanks to the help from someone off dezertrangers
i pulled my bedsides a bit today. just enough so it doesnt rub when i flex and give it gas (axle wrap)

and it looks a bit beefier too
i'd say they're out about 2.5" or so
not noticeable to anybody but another ranger enthusiast lol

no pics, because pics do no justice

leaving the front since i dont rub anywhere. no reason to mess with it if it aint broke

it was pretty easy. cut the bed supports at the top of the wheel well, take off all the little metal things that secure the lower parts of the bedsides to the frame
take a bottle jack with a piece of wood on the inside of the fender and crank it out. then he riveted pieces of flat metal to the top support to secure it where its at.
ill take some pics tomorrow when my camera charges.
doubt you guys will be able to notice it though

like i said, hard to tell in the pic, but if you compare it to an untouched bedside the difference is obvious.
