New guy from Phoenix, AZ.

Hey everyone, name is Brandon, I'm 34, from Phoenix, AZ, yadda yadda who cares, right? :)

I am currently driving a 95 Jeep Cherokee, lifted with about $10k worth of work in it. Although I'm not here to talk about that, and I will be selling it soon. I'm getting a little older and just moved into a house so I needed something a little more useful (and easier on my bones lol). So I bought a 2010 Ranger from a family member, taking delivery as soon as I can drive my *** out to Irvine to pick it up. It's an 4.0 XLT 4x4, mostly stock. I've attached a couple pictures. Will be joining your ranks here in full force very soon.

Anyhow, I am going to be doing a bit of work... the entirety of the proceeds from the Jeep will be going into this thing right off the bat. That said, I have a few questions... I was going to start out with the super lift kit, although I was thinking of trying to use the skyjacker leaf pack instead of the blocks in the back if I can make it fit, otherwise I might have custom made. Also, I have been lurking around the forums and ran across some info regarding doing a coil conversion using the super lift kit as a "starting point." I did search and found the 75 page thread on that, but I couldn't find, and I am curious, if anybody has compiled all that stuff into one place? I made the mistake of getting pro comp kit for my XJ which was the worst lift I could have gotten apparently. I would like to avoid making (and wasting money on) those kinds mistakes from the get go! hah!

Are there any specific weak points on these things that should be addressed up front? For example the XJ had weak U-Joints, and a horribly fragile tie rod. I would prefer to address common weak points before doing anything else.
