Don't know yet about the shafts yet, got to convince the wife first. She thinks I already spend to much on the truck and not her!

Heres a little update. got my front shafts replaced went with yukon chromos. Hell of a lot more beef on them than a stock one.

Also installed a trac bar yester day. Was getting some shifting of the front end when going around corners with the rear spool pushing. Made a real differnce how it handles.

New shafts look money. Trac bar looks good bet that helps a ton. Might have to do that myself.

Here's a little update,been using the Ranger for a lot of daily driving and the swampers just plain sucked on he road. Couldnt get the balanced right no matter what i did, So i downsized to 37's, they ride and handle so much better.

Thanks guys. I like the superwinch so far, its the 8500lb and has had more than enough pulling power and the line speed iz pretty good too. I was on the fence on deciding which one to get in the 300-400 dollar price range untill i couldnt really fine any bad reviews on superwinch. Plus their are so many uses for having a front winch besides just getting out of trouble, iv used it alot more than i thought i would.

That thing looks damn good! Nice wheeling pics too, looks like a fun spot. I like the look of the 37s a little better but I'm sure the 39's did pretty good off road lol
