Yeah, I need to make some gap guards. Definitely would make it look more finished and hopefully keep mud out.

Thanks y'all.

After a little more testing today I need to change a few things. With my coilovers cranked to height, the smaller bumpstops, and sway bar off I've got some issues.

I didn't have my camera but when I had it to about this point. My tires were rubbing like hell and the coil looked awful tight, almost no gap between the coils.



I'm just worried about tearing up my tires or binding the coil up and breaking something. I've either got to move these smaller bumpstops out, get some bigger ones, or put the swaybar back on. It crazy how much more uptravel you get without the swaybar.

Just for comparison. I'm way too short to keep it without some kind of step for long, talk about a pita getting up in it. Maybe some motivation to get my sliders on.

Needs gap guards. But other than that your truck is SEXY! I love it. That front bumper really grew on me.

Hey Seed60?
I was wondering what kind of that front bumper that you have on your sexy Blue Ranger Edge! I would like to know what site that you got it...
Thanks!
