Awesome deal! I'm jealous. I have a big dent in that exact place from trying to navigate a super tight turn in between trees on a trail. Throw up some pics as you go man this is gonna be a sweet ranger

Nice truck. Looking forward to seeing the lift on it.

I don't know how anyone can take a nice clean truck like that and smash it up offroad.

Josh........I be trollin' ya thread!!!











Good deal on the lift!! Can't wait to see her on her(giggity). Just remember seeing what 10" rims do to our trucks with flares and a flexy rear end when you're making wheel choices! haha.

Sub'd. The truck will look awesome lifted.

Are you going to stay with t-bars or are you going to swap to coil-overs?

Just got my leaf springs, they only got 122k on them, and i need to replace the bushings on them. Lift should be on soon!


I got a jarry can at a estate sale for 5 dollars and came with a new Jerry Can Nozzle Spout Flexible Metal!!! Had some rust on the out side so I sanded it all the way down to bare metal and repainted it. The inside was clean, no leaks. Well after letting it sit for a week, I put gas in it and some gas spilled on the out side and now the clear coat all messed up, I don't know what to do now....

took us about 10 hours to do, would have been closer to 8 but one of the lower ball joints was toast so we had to replace it.

800's are gonna ride stiff, you plan on any extra front weight? I'm also considering those foxes for the rear. Please let me know how you like them when you install. Truck looks good but I'm partial to blue trucks. I also like yo video, it's nice you added music but its not overpowering like some I've seen others posted.
