I remember reading something about the 2004 2wd frames can't be swapped to 4wd because its a different design. That true? Makes sense because of the lack of coil supports on the 4x4.

So I was talking to some company reps today and found out that most oil companies will pay me a bonus/finance a purchase of a new vehicle for me when I start working for them. The only requirements are that it be newer then 4 years old, have 4 doors, and be 4x4. Any guesses as to what I'm going to get?!

better be an f250.. if youre gonna do a fullsize mod do it for real please. but do you really need a new vehicle? what if things fall through with this company and youre left with a truck you cant afford.

Nothing wrong with an F150, better mileage than a diesel and cheaper maintenance.

1) Removable Doors!




2) Expo leafs installed


3) changed spark plugs


4) found a vacuum leak and got a lot of power back and my mpg has gone up quite a bit as well.

Just went though the entire build thread! Love it!

Looks like I'll be ordering lift spindles for my Ranger next month hopefully.

the are a direct fit and I usually people get 1-3 inches of lift. I put mine on and took out my 2" block and stayed about the same hight.

How easy is it to take the doors off? Plans for tube doors or cutting up other doors to make half doors?
