Replied! Thanks for the full truck pics! I love the satin bed line contrast with the gloss black! It's rad.

Love the bumper, but the over sized 3in light hoop is over kill to me. But man the rest of the bumper looks great.

YESSSSSSS.

Though I cannot confirm nor deny if that is Mike in the reflection....the lamp is blocking the mustache! His work is top notch and his truck is super clean and very well thought out. Probably the best built Ranger on the west coast....definitely one of my favorites. Not kissing his ****, just noting that it's the truth. Plus, he's a pretty swell feller too!

Thanks for the props man! I think I do pretty good work but that's just me. Lol

I don't know if you had mentioned it or not, but do you have any plans for the rear bumper or keeping it stock for now?

Fearce Offroad doesn't currently make a rear bumper for my stepside - but, I'm pretty much done with it for now. lol

Sadly, after 24 hours - no. lol

I know its is a shame to have those sweet custom painted corners hanging out in the box!

Its on the top of the list once I've got the free time to mess with the truck!

Thanks again Mike!

Truck looks great !
The rear bumper, if you want a plate rear bumper, custom 4x4 fabrication makes one for a ranger Steppie.
Mine was the prototype but Mike at C4x4 can adapt to your specs.

There aren't a lot of people that make a rear Ranger Bumper and less that make a rear one for a Steppie.

Now that you have the supercharger do you run premium fuel or does the meth injection take care of that issue?

I've been running premium ever since I got my SCT tuner wayyyyy back on my N/A setup.

So yes, my dyno tune was setup to take advantage of both the premium fuel & the meth injection.

I could have had it setup for anything though - that's the advantage of a true custom dyno tuning session.

Hey Logan did you end up going with those Dynabeads to balance your tires? I know you don't put a lot of miles on the truck, but was wondering your impressions of them if you did end up using them.

I used balance beads and the only issue I have is at certain speeds I still get a slight vibration, although I think this is actually from before when I had a bad alignment and the tires wore funny

Yep sure did & I have no problems with them at all.

I've been running the 'Off Road' Dyna Beads (Dyna Beads- Online Store).

You can feel it wobble a little until you get moving some (the beads need to disperse & settle to the bottom with each stop). It's nothing crazy, but then again I'm double lifted & run 35's with true beadlocks - so I don't expect a 'smooth' ride. lol

They will also only fix a rotational imbalance not a lateral one - so it might not work perfectly on every setup.

Also once the beads are installed - you can't really use a 'hi-tech' road force/spin balance to supplement it. The beads will have the computer going crazy since the required weight placement would change every time.
