01 ranger new to site c town, sc

Hey I am Paul M. I am new to this site but I am not new to the explorer or ranger.platform. Currently I have a 2001 Ranger XLT 4X4 Off Road. Its lifted with a PA bl, 2 stock blocks, and a little torsion twist to level it out. Im running 15.Cragar rims with 33 Maxxis bighorns. I use to have a 99 Explorer lowered 2 on Cruiser Alloy 901c's with 265/35/22 pirelli p zero.scorpions with a killer system. Lol im done with that stage of street trucks/suvs. My plans are to put a Superlift, Skyjacker leafs in rear, and coilover the front and delete torsion bars and run 35s or 36s. I will be doing a build thread once I get all the parts. Im in the process of ordering the coilover brackets from me00stepside on here. They are the hardest to get so those are first. My plans are to.make my own front and rear tubular bumpers and sliders. As well as pedestal mount gun turrent with picatinny bass for modularity with rail systems of ar's in the bed haha. I want an all purpose truck that can get through any situation around here. No sas. My philosophy is you work hard for your money and its your vehicle so do what makes YOU happy. Modify it the way you want. Why spend the money building it if you arnt going to use it. And everybodys entitled to their opinion and I respect that. Well I look forward to future threads and post, and thanks for looking.

Deavers are the best leafs you can buy in my opinion. Once they are broken in they ride great and articulate even better. Just don't buy them if you pull trailers or load the bed down often. They aren't made to handle the weight and you'll have a saggy rear with any kind of load.

My brackets came in. they are extremely well made. Im just glad I picked up the second to last kit me00stepside had. Im ordering coilovers friday from FOA with their extended eyelets. Im going to give them a shot. Two weeks ill have the Superlift from Summit. Only $1330 shipped-dont want garbage rear. FOA will alsk be making me 10” travel rear shocks. I will be doing a build thread. Anybody know where to get fx4 8.8 31 spline rear axle? I could get explorer but wanted to try this first.
