Icon5 New guy on campus

Hey guys and girls,
First off I have to say INCREDIBLE site! it is my bible
I'm new here to RF but I have been using the site for quite a while
I recently became single so with my extra time I thought I would start mod-ing my ranger again

I have a 98 xlt 4x4 4.0l with a 5 speed
the Mods I have already done are:
-Tossed mudflap
-Gutter guard grill
-Painted fender flares
-Custom Magnaflow exhaust
-Night shade front to back (not the head lights)
-Tinted windows 20%
-Snorkel Mod
-Acc. rev lights (broke off the first time wheeling)
-Installed a Cobra CB and PA (PA's kick A$$)
-Made my own shift **** out of a lacrosse ball
-Cranked torsion bars
-And finally my most loved, the infamous OHC
And thats about it....

so if you know of any others i haven't done PLEASE let me know

thank you very much!

thanks!
i think an SAS is out of the question for a while because im still currently a student in high school (Senior year baby!!) and have no job

but the super sounds real good! but i was thinking i would use one of my 5.0l in my garage to use lol

the truck has a 4 in lift that came from the factory and again no income so i cant afford a lift
but i do have a lot of hockey pucks and a body lift might be a good idea

but other than that ill wright them down for future mods thanks!

Welcome.....to my knowledge, there was no "factory lift" for Rangers that year, or possibly ever. Are you superlifted? (4in suspension lift)

in that case thats the way they came stock..... there is some kind of blocks in the back but that must just be part of the 4x4 kit?

That's right, they came in all 4x4's, and the 2wd Trailheads in that year. 2wd Edge's/Sports and all 98+ 4x4's came with the block in the back.
