yes. im just saing that a SAS swap with deavers would be less then long travel. and since he isnt running the baja 1000, why not

I understand what ur sayin just that ifs is easier to protect for one they both accomplish the same thing but lt 4x4 on rangers is uncommon and pretty sweet...that and brandon is pretty much finishing up my kit..

having 4x4 still is a big plus, more uses,faster get-up in the dirt, and on top of that having long travel. I've been thinking of how itd be sweet to have 2wd, longer travel and motor swaps easier etc. but I keep remembering how nice having the 4x4 is still. you can get yourself un-stuck in the sand for one :)

Add some rigids (20" & 2 duallys) under the bumper tucked in and call it good
Also tryin to decide between mcneil and fiberx 6" front fenders.. Probably mcneil tho. Any thoughts and input on wgat glass and the bumper idea are appreciated

do you have plans to remove the bed?just my opinion but it seems kind of weird to buy sliders designed for body protection but not get ones long enough to protect the bed as well. another 11' of slider wouldnt really be much more weight
