ive got the ranger lean back again. :( probably add some more pressure to the drivers side rear shock.

fried my winch i think, (lots of smoke) I guess I hooked it up wrong? idk what i was doing. Too many things going on at once i guess.

drives freaking awesome, bit too much lean though. probably add a sway bar later. i never really adjusted anything, took it out and rolled right up to 70mph smooth and nice. drives better than with leaf springs IMO, handles bumps in hte road and the ditch pretty well. I am very happy with it. The bedsides I like on there and I am so glad I doved it, I love that. The passenger side bedside sucks I hate it, its the worst most time consuming pain in the butt. I still cant get it to line up right, but it was bent before I started.

what doesnt line up about it? take some pics of how it doesnt line up properly. and some pics of how you mounted them. maybe someone hear will offer some suggestions to ease your brain

Most auto focus cameras have a manual bypass... usually located right near the left side of the lens - hodl it in and thumb your buttons up and down to manually focus
