Lightning Wheels?

Just seeing what was needed to put lightning wheels on my truck. Maybe F150 brakes, axles?

hmm i thought it was way wider than the ranger so it would have to be shortened. Cuz on the front you would have to change something in order to get the bigger bolt pattern on there.

Here is how my truck sits now.

It is an edge and has been dropped 4/5 or so.

FRONT- Torsion bar bolt taken out, and torsion key flipped, stock bump stops.

REAR- Stock lift block taken out, and 3rd leaf spring removed. :)
