haha reasons why i didnt want boggers. oh well. iv been reading i can get 20k out of them as long as i keep the right psi in the tires and rotate them. im going with 5.14 gears. well, 5.14 rear and 5.13 front.

I never really think of a Ranger as a mud truck. I look at your truck and think huge flex. Not deep mud.

i see where you are coming from. i did build it to have a lot of flex. the northeast is nothing but mud. not much crawling around here.

Just spitballing, wouldn't it have been easier to get an older full size and make it into a mud truck, or is it because you don't see newer Ranger mud trucks?

I'm not being a jerk, I just didn't know if there was a specific reason behind using this truck

i thought about that and yes, you are right. i did this for a few reasons, but the biggest is not many people have a ranger like this. and to get the same amount of clearance with a full size, it would have been too tall.

trails, yes they are some, but not crawling. there is no need for a truck like mine for the trails we have around here.

rangerboy101, yes i still have the waag bar. it might be going back on.
