Only thing im concerned with them is dirt getting in them and destroying them. Ive got an idea to make a dust cover for em though.

backcountry, when mine come in ill get some pictures on here for ya.

not sure if they will clear your coilover's.

my pack is a full ranger pack plus 2 chevy 1500 leafs. they long surpassed a ranger payload. i can load my 400lbs bike in the back and it drops about 1.5" the best part is they ride better then a stock ranger leaf. heres a pic of my pack.


you will also need to make a e-brake bracket.

Dont you need to flip the shackles to run F-31's? Thus canceling the lift?

No blocks at all, current setup is leafs directly mounted to the axle and belltech shackles. Looks like i might go to stock shackles to lose a bit more height

Wheel spacers won't effect an alignment but coil spacers will. Being that you have coilovers I'm guessing you did wheel spacers meaning it won't hurt your alignment.

Fiberglass fenders would probably help, would you get matching rears though?

Id wait on the glass. your pretty well stock width and not far from stock suspension. Fenders without the build up is kinda like a racing spoiler on a stock civic.

truck looks good though. id personally ditch the rims and get your self some better rubber. those tires are far too stock.
