That is a score for the front end. You can scrape it after and make some money back if you wanted.

Also I would run 31x10.5's if you are going to stock height.

I don't know what I am going to do yet. Probably either way taking the body lift off. I have my stock rims so going to run those for now. I just don't want to put to much more money into this truck. I've pissed enough away as it is.

I'd keep the tires if they are good and find a rim with less offset.

Problem is I only have 3 tires and one spare that would probably be ok to use but don't want to since it has a patch right on the corner of the tire.

My dad is really having some problems bleeding the brakes on this thing but of course I can't be there to help him. We have bled plenty of brakes before but any pointers on Rangers?

I just did mine like normal. Is a line leaking from the new parts maybe?

Greased them in May. Shouldn't have failed. I like ride height of it and plan on selling it either in the spring or this summer. Would have been a perfect time though.

I know you don't want to spend more money on it, but that hood needs painting LOL. And i'd run wheels that aren't as wide...I hate that balooned look with tires.

Glad to see you've got it back on the road
