Looks good man!

I would find a set of 4 door Explorer leaf packs and use those. That should level it out. Either that or a pair of add a leafs. Chevy packs are a bit stiff driving down the road, but they flex great.

A set of 34x10.50 Super Swamper LTB's would look awesome on your truck when you decide to run bigger tires.

What do you have left to do? Looks like shocks, trim u-bolts, and a revised drag link. Is that it?

Yea, I've already got the SD towers, just gotta make some tabs at school. But since I'm selling it, I don't want to put too much more money/time into it.

super duty shock towers are just 23 bucks each from ford. wow thats cheap!

those may have to wait till next week.

this weekend i am gonna get some steel to finish the frame braces and custom sway bar links. i got a line on a drag link, maybe 2 of them from a guy on GL4x4, i hope he also has a YJ pitman arm, if he does i am gonna see it will fit on the ranger box, if it does then i will order a drop arm for a jeep, if it doesn't then i will order a drop arm for a ranger and see if i can get a adapter or weld then ream.

either way the drag link needs to be lower.

cant really tell yet zach.

the pic is not a good image.

its actually not as bad as it looks, i may run it like this for a while.

i have a complete YJ steering box and arm coming and 2 YJ drag links, all for 40 bucks lol

i may use the YJ box for a "future" project.
