Get a set of Mickey Thompson Claws 33x12.50x15, super lift ( because you can not get a RCD lift, and super charge the ***** out of the truck.


And welcome Back

I would say a body lift first. And find an explorer 8.8 axle and put in a locker. 2wd would be no good without a locker on it.

Welcome back!

Yeah im def thinking a body lift first...but im not decided on anything yet.

And as for the flames...i bought the truck used like this...the previous owner is in jail i assume. lol. Because i would have never wasted money for flames on my truck...but thats not saying im glad he didnt...hehe

And thx for all the warm welcomes ;-)

2wd, spindle lift is the way to go. I am not sure what people do for the rear. They seem to be easy to put on, easier then a body lift anyway.

I have done 2 body lifts and I wouldn't do it again. I had the 5 spd shifter extender piece and it never was right. It would always pop out of 4th.

I guess ask yourself how big of a tire you want to go with. I think Rangers look best with 33x12.50, unless you do a lot of wheeling 33's are plenty

Ill get pics up sometime soon. Im goin on leave tomorrow. Flying back to SC and doin the 1200 mile drive back to Abilene in my Ranger. My other mode of transportation, what ive had for the 3 years i havent been driving the ranger, is a 2001 Yamaha Roadstar Silerado. But only having a motorcycle as a primary means of transportation is a hassle...especially when dealing with west texas weather.
