So what "kit" did you install, Mr. Ott? Brand and part number would be great.

Stop trying to tear apart a new guy/members work.
Show your pride in the ranger and the forum and help him where he needs help and praise for a job well done so his ranger can look as good as some of the other ranger on this site.

I am getting a vibe that some of us have nothing better to do than tear apart a new guys work...

We were all "the new guy" once !

Hey it's like television if you don't like what you see change the channel. I don't come here to read you guys critique and pissing and moaning because somebody posts something that don't suit you.

^^ Agreed! I wasn't aware they sold 2" lifts either but looks good! Make sure to lift the rear bumper though.

You will learn as I still am, pictures tell the story.
These guys, as with other site they like pictures, and any post, including my last FEW, need pictures.

I am still working to fill the pictures from things I posted, I need to stop remodeling the house for 15 minutes and get some pictures.

As you said next time but try to answer as many questions in threads as possible, it keeps the animals happy. LOL guy, just joking,,,

I'd like part numbers also, I was under the impression there were 1" and 3" kits only.

So according to the part number, you used a 2" BL for a fullsize ford truck.

That's the kind of thing you should have stated from the start.

Now curious minds want to know what kind of adjustments you made?

That's interesting. The bolts supplied with the kit actually worked? Why not use a kit designed specifically for the truck? One that includes all proper drop brackets like radiator drops, ground extensions, bumper relocation brackets, fuel extensions, etc?

The kit that should have been used would have been PA #70033 (01+) or PA #883 (98-00). Essentially the exact same kits and they're in 3" for a Ford Ranger.

We're truly interested in this. Could you post more pics? Namely close ups of the body lift itself....areas like the front bumper brackets and steering extension?

I wasn't aware there was enough shaft slip for a 2" BL without the use of an extension. A 3" BL includes about a 2" steering shaft extension.
