Nice hill. How bad do the rear tires rub?

Spool is tough on axles. Gonna upgrade to chromos?

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
