Are you going to get glass for 35s? Cause I think the 32s are perfect without it. The truck has come a long way and looks awesome!

for now ill be running some cut stock fenders up front, the rear should be fine with minor trimming and pulled bedsides. focusing on other things before glass. like the regear of the 8.8..

ahh now i see what youre saying haha.

my room mate owns a 00 ranger with camburg 5.5, 33in grabbers, small cage, and an expo 8.8. i sold him some fiberglass for the front so he had his stock fenders laying around the apt. i traded some LEDs for them and cut em up! kinda pointless now, i called off the deal for the 35s.

stopped in at ruffstuff specialties and only wanted to get some D ring mounts. theyve got so much cool ****.. i immidietly went into shut up and take my money mode and ended up leaving with some strap mounts, the D ring mounts and a ruffstuff 8.8 cover.

the cover, total beefcake. literally bulletproof.


also earlier in the day i picked up that rear bumper for $20. guy that sold it to me was chill, had a sweet ranger (first gen) dove tailed and SAS'd on D44s, leaf sprung on 37s. right after hitting ruffstuff, went over to a buddys and had him weld them on while i worked in my straps. one side is strapped the other feels neglected.









still gotta paint it, get my own D rings cause i borrowed thiis one for my trip. gotta make a license plate mount with a light as well.

How's the quality of the limit straps and the mounts? I just went to their site and saw they are reasonably priced. Some other places had them for $30 or more for just the strap. The whole kit and caboodle for under $60? Helluva deal. They don't look like they have the adjustable clevis though.

ORW has straps for $25 then the adjustible clevis is $31 each. I would like the feature of adjusting the length so I'm torn. Also can you post pics of how you mounted them?

the straps are great quality, mine are doubles so theyre not gonna stretch too much. i decided not to mount the clevis' due to lack of room on the coil bucket with the brake line right there. if the clevis goes up and down and wears into my brake line im ----ed.. so i drilled into the coil bucket and mounted it that way. only one is mounted, and i still need to relocate the lower mount, but yea ill post pics when its all finished. jumping strapless over the weekend probably wasnt a great idea, but all my shitty welds held on

Brake lines are behind the coil right? You could mount the limits in front of it no? Or vice versa.

kinda hard to see but heres the brake line on the back side of the coil bucket, same place where the clevis would mount to and wear into the line.
