v8 ranger with 10in body lift...haha

I found this on ebay....v8 camoed ranger on 10 body lift.
Camo v8 ranger


its a bronco chassis with a ranger body. he even says "The body sits on 10 inches of lift allowing for stock suspention geometry" what is that all about. and the listing title has the word "crawler" in it..yes. Its a pretty cool looking truck and fatass windsor. but still what is with the 10 INCH BODY LIFT, i think not.

I like the look just not the lift. Sits at a good height if it was mostly suspension

Agreed. It actually looks pretty good. But unless he actually welded bracing to do the 10-in lift (which from the pics I don't see any of), I'd feel unsafe. The easiest way out is always the best right? Haha...

Must be a FL truck, it's all about the body lifts in fl...everyone builds theirs on big bl's to keep suspension geometry. They do run big motors and axles, but you want mostly stock suspension geometry.

If it's a mud truck...who cares

it is a Ranger....if you look closely at the back of the cab, you can see were they cut the front off the bed and welded it to the cab to shorten the wheel base.....

i like the Gen 3 and the UPS truck (if they change the #'s on it!)

its a ranger body, they had to mod the bed inorder to make the wheel and the body sit right. you can tell because it looks like they used a long bed, shortened it, right where the seem is you can see where the fuel tank lid used to be

I could see the bed/body seem being a problem when with frame flexes
