Kyle wanted me to post these for him. Yesterday we got his bumper and winch installed on his truck. Today we took the truck across the street to an empty parking lot and were playing around with the winch.




And here's a pic of it pulling my truck with the park brake applied.

That he does. Can't beat the quality and strength of these bumpers for the price. And he was able to adjust the mounting holes 1 1/2" to help make it fit the body lifts better.

When are you going to installed your front bumper

His quality is the best thing but the price can’t be beat. Some of the other shops that sell bumpers charge way too much, $1100 and some more C4x4 Bumpers are around the $600 mark and rugged.
I expect the rear to be just as HD and built with the same quality as the front.

Not sure when, but hoping for a warm day or two to get this started.

Everything is always on hold, either the house, and the wife’s older vehicle and holidays and now the daughter is getting married.

A buddy of mine just opened a new shop I may have him do some of the exterior stuff just to get it done.

Thanks for asking and hoping to get get the front and rear done at the same time, by early spring !

Dollar for dollar the best value in bumpers for the Ranger.

Check out his rear bumper on my threads, no one make a rear ranger bumper and although the one in the thread is a Steppie Rear he is working on a Styleside version.

He is working on a Styleside bumper, call and talk to him.
The width will be the same just need to spread out the center and eliminate the top indents that wrap for the steppie; mounting is the same too.

All he will needs is someone that wants one.

Thought I would give a little update on this thread. We've been fitting a rough idle and lack of power on this for the last 6 months now. It finally got bad enough it would barley go 55 mph on the hgihway and that was flooring it. This weekend we got her running good as new. There were so many things wrong with the truck that I am surprised it even ran at all. First off the timing chain had a 1/4" of play in it, the cam synchronizer had play and was noisy when pulled, #6 full injector was cracked, passenger head cylinder was cracked at the #1 cylinder and starting to crack at the #2 cylinder, driver side head the exhaust valve seats were gone on cylinder #5 and cylinder #6 and was cracked on cylinder #6.

So we installed brand new heads, new timing chain, new lifters, new push rods, new rocker arms, new fuel injectors, new cam synchronizer and all new seals.

Onto the pictures.

Overall picture of the driver side head. Notice the exhaust valves on cylinder 5 and cylinder 6.


Sorry shitty picture, but you can kind of see the crack between the valves on cylinder 6


Again sorry for the shitty picture, but you can really see the crack between the valves on cylinder 1.


One Pile of junk.


From this angle you can see how much higher the exhaust valves were sitting.


Passenger new head installed.


Picture of new head.



Both heads installed.


Starting to look like an engine again.
