Oh ok. Your first post said 9" rear. That's why I was confused.

You can do it man. Get a nice small welder that can run on 220amp. And start off small like bumpers, and then as your skills grow, do bigger and bigger projects. Eventually your skills will get to the point were you are confident enough to tackle something like this.

So Tonight I had to drive a buddy of mine in for a appt he has in the morning, from our training ex that we are on. My Sgt told me to just stay at home for te night and hen come back out in the morning. Which is awesome. So I took the opertunity to work on the ranger a bit.

So I managed to get the boat sides tacked in for now. Took a lot longer then expected because I have yet to get my notcher in. So I had to use the good old trusty angle grinder and a cut off wheel.


So enough with the babbling and on with te pics. There is only two so it will gave to do.





Let me know hat you guys think.

What the hell is the point in that. I want to be able to go over boulders, and take this thing down to rush creek and Johnson's valley ( if it's still open ). If I did a sfbd I won't be able to get out of he dame drive away. Even when I had my mustang gt I did not even lower that.

Once everything is said and done, this will have around 8 inches of suspension lift alone. As for tires I plane on running 39.5 pit bull rockers. The reason for hat is because there is a TTC type of competition here every year and only thing separating the armature from the pro class is the tire size. 39.5 is max tire size for armature class. And I plan on dominating it.
