Well, plan on doing a 3" BL here soon and with some 35" Buckshot Mudders also..I know I will lose alot of power, but will be putting in 4.56 gears and getting a Bama/Apten Programmer to go along with it also..I think this is going to look pretty badass..I have already looked around at other rangers with the same setup and I'm pretty impressed with the look..

BTW---me and a couple of buddies are putting it on..

Let me know what ya'll think...

Brian

i think 35"s on a 2wd with a 3.0 would be a bit much for my tastes...but it would look pretty bad ***...although just running 33" muds where your at now would look pretty good...it all depends on your cash flow i suppose...

btw...im planning on body lifting my 98 4x4 4.0 before the end of the year and running 33" buckshots on 15x8's...

i live in tallahassee...just a couple hours away...sometime we need to get a little north florida trail ride together, id love to check out your truck in person.

Hell yea man, I would be up for that..I don't start school again till the 25th this month..Do you know a guy named Jason Davis up there were you are at? He drives a newer style F-150(Dark Green) Ext-Cab 4*4....If not thats cool...

Anyways-I am still debating on the 35s(not a definite), but its an option for me to do..I guess I could wait a little bit for the 35s, and get the gears installed along with the programmer..We'll see after the lift is put on(that is most likely going to happen though)..

PM me, and we'll see what we can do about meeting up..I'm up for it..

Brian, lemme know if you all need some help up there, I never lifted a truck before, but I got some skills.

I'm definately up for a north fl trail ride although I'mcalling shotgun with one of you all since my truck ain't gonna be liking dirt much sooner.

Sure will man, I am still waiting for the Body Lift to come in, and then I have to make some arrangements with my buddies in Flagler/Bunnell..Assuming you know where that is, haha..That is where the BL is getting put on! I will PM you my cell phone number and call me so I have yours and will get in touch with you bro..

well sorry to change the subject...but about getting a N. FL trail ride together...my truck is still stock right now, and i wont be getting a b/l and 33"s for at least a couple more months(im shooting for late october)...so id be up for it whenever, but i wouldnt participate in anything offroad until im lifted...

where are some trails in N. FL?...seems like everyone around here only wants to go boggin, which is fun, but id rather get a trail ride together...
