My drop is limited by the CVs I got, not sure if his machined axles will pull much more tho.
Right now I have about an inch of preload, I could back it out but it sits really low almost to low.
I don't mind if anyone pops in on this thread, IM trying to gather info to build my truck right. All this help is great. Adrian, won't the tens be to long for my truck as well, or just make taller hoops, how much?

The cv's im talking about are the 930 joints that do make a huge difference. Most guys use 10's with the btf kit. Just use a taller hoop. As for price im not sure yet im quite a ways away from taking them out still

Ordered some fenders from fiberwerx, thanks to travisfab on Dr for the hookup. Had a good time at the dunes, learned I need way more suspension work. Super soft up front and need an air pump or something so I can airdown. Didn't get stuck tho. Love four wheel drive

Thanks but not raptor conversion completely. Six inch fenders with custom vents cut in them for the svt vents keeping the ranger look with some raptor influence. Some hood pins are coming too and modding my hood so my cowl is functional

IM going 33s since I dd my truck going with 3.75 BS 16 method standards and falkens in January. Newest mod finished today, snorkel so I don't worry about mud and water getting in the Airbox when IM offroading. Need to install vents finish up my hood. Install hood pins and then save up for wheels, tires, gears, and locker
