Spring mounts welded on and cleaned up the axle tubes. Need to prime and paint and clean up the diff.



Still need shock mounts but may wait till I do something else so I don't have to cut them off again

nice, I got a few 100 miles on my G50s not and they are working great. I certainly need a bed cage to really take advantage of them but they are a huge improvement over my stockers. you may want to consider F31s unless your adding 2 spares and a fuel cell. mine are stiff with 400lbs of gear and tools plus spare tire and gas.

Its a proportioning valve so you can adjust the rear brake bias.

Local shop put a swivel end on my stained braided brake line so I could hook up my rear brakes to a proportioning valve without twisting up my brake line. Still messing with the valve to find a good spot on it

Tired of washing the truck and it being dirty before I even really go any where. So got some universal mudflaps that span the width of my tires and should help keep it cleaner and I'll make them removable for when I'm off-roading

I put some of those flaps on my buddy's Subaru about a year ago. I'm interested to see how they look on a ranger.

Yeah it will be interesting to see how they look. I've never been a fan of flaps, but sometimes function > looks

I figured it was worth a try for 24$ if it helps keep my truck cleaner I hope they look good to

Finished mounting my rally armor mudflaps. Was a temporary idea but I like em and save me some hassle with the cops and my rear tires sticking out to far
