I found a set last night out of the U.S. for $46 shipped. I may pull the trigger on them.

They also have a set that is blacked out. Can't decide which one I like more.

No shipping, but I did have a fee, I guess for international purchases?

Finally finished the sway bar. Ordered custom one from Speedway Engineering and made new mounts on the axle. The sway bar is tucked up tight and I love how it turned out.

Added bonus: I used the end links to get the truck to sit level.

Drives like it did when it was stock. It's a huge improvement.

The combination of high steer, corrected steering angles, and this sway bar have made a world of difference

Good to hear! I really like the straight arms on there, wish I had the room for those.

Thanks, I'm glad I went with this. I had first considered modifying the original sway bar, but it wasn't wide enough.

Yeah dude I think that style sway bar is the best thing you could've picked. Are you still using your truck as a daily driver?

Once I bought the Saturn in the fall of 2013, the Ranger retired as a DD. That's how I've been able to do these big projects

Looks good man. Just wondering out loud here.. what benefit is there, if any, to running coils with shocks behind them like yours vs running a coil-over set-up like Ryan has on his?

It's just a cheaper setup, coilovers are more fine tuned, and take up less space

Got the first piece of my 4-link project. I've been trying to find a styleside for years. Got this one local with a camper shell and extra tailgate for $125

Nice find. The cap by itself is worth more than what you paid.

Overall, the bed is in good shape, much better than what I normally find around here. There is a few places that need some work, and the mud stains aren't an issue, but I still need to get a thorough clean to properly asses the bed floor. Depending on how it looks, I may do a whole new floor when I tub the bed for the 4-link.







The cap is nearly perfect, just dirty. That will come in handy down the road.





The extra tailgate just has a small dent on top that should be cinch to fix.



The filler neck needs to be cleaned up so I can see if I need a new one.



For $125 I didn't get hurt at all. It's just making me want to hurry to the next stage of my build.

Front end looks great. I bet it rides awesome with that sway bar.

What are your plans for the 4-link in the rear? Something like BLK02's?

I don't have an exact plan, but it will probably be similar to BLK02's, but probably with shorter lower links, I'd like to keep more ground clearance in the middle.

I will probably have a custom rear truss, I haven't found a pre-made one that I like.
