1999 Ranger XLT from Zero to....?

Built thread of my ranger evolution ;-)

i strated in 2009 to build the truck for my hobbies but i own it since 2007.

this was the start:




































to get a got starting point, i messed with every single rust spot on my car.nasty dirty work but i dont want to buy an other car ;-)

i hated the metal can sound from rain on my roof so i decided to do some sound deadener in doors,floor and roof.worked nice

How do you like the Expo leaf springs? Did it give you stock ride height or lift ya? I need to replace my leaf springs since they are giving the truck a rake look all the time.

By the way, trucks coming along nicely.

the explorer leaf spring swap gave me abaut 2-3 cm (1") compared to the old original spring.actual with the 2" shackles and original 245/75 R16 Tires i messure between ground and the highest point of the wheel well 98cm (38"-39").the plan here is a PA Bodylift and the dixon bros 2.0 shock upgrade on the front.but they dont answear to my mails! (@ford.com e-mail address.... :-( ).want to fit 285/75 R16 tires on my stock rims with taht setup if the BFG ATīs wear out.got them since an year...nearly new.

the underbody Protector is build by an friend of me here in germany.if someone is realy interested i can ask for shipping to usa (maybe an weld it yourself kit)

http://anncarina.de/pages/angebot/er...fahrschutz.php

hope this dixon bros guys will answear..want this upgrade for christmas ;-) what shocks can i use in the rear?

i am travelling long distances offroad so it shouldt be reservoir shocks because of cooling on high speeds.
