Looks good man. I think if you rolled the edge of the fenders a little, that the rough look would go away and you will have less chance of shredding a tire.

Sorry if this has already been mentioned, didnt read anything but the first page.

Wow, this thread blows! The truck looks good to me. I guess if you're not doing a gillion dollars worth of useless stereo, clear corners, and LED BS modifications here and there people just don't dig it. If you want better reactions to the mods you will have to spray paint the door panel trim and add more chrome.

Its your truck dude, FTW and do what you like. I dig the cut up fenders!

EDIT: When is ORR coming back online?

no....the body will sway with turns. sway bars are additional to suspension...dont need one to drive down the road. it wont track all over the road because it's got really nothing to do with the steering system.

with no sway bar, i notice no difference driving or around turns. the ttb is stiff enough that it doesn't change enough to notice. when i put a solid axle i will most likely put one back on, but until i break it, the ttb stays. will probably steal some 35's from one of my friends to see how it feels and works.
no gearing change needed currently

Check out this thread for Rausch Creek. Just a general thread. But if you go post up in there. Try and get a few heads for the trip.

i'm going to get all the fenders cut the same and then see how it works. most likely my ranger will get a solid axle and a little lift. i'm looking into gearing options before i go much further.
you said you were going to do a little lift, why didn't you just wait till you had that "little lift" so you could avoid the hack job on the fenders. but, good luck with the project.

Man way to dig up more bull****. Who cares? Its not your truck, and in case you didnt know, its called a measuring tape. Measure the approximate area where the tires are going to hit, then cut. If your smart enough, you can figure out where its going to hit with the lift.
