trucks lookig good. you are pretty much doing what im thinking. minus the dbr shock hoop.

Whoa. Sorry to hear/see that man. I was really starting to like your truck. What happened? I mean other than the obvious.

Glad you're okay.

Never mind, saw the other thread. That sucks.

i walked away from it, cuts on my hands from crawling out the windshield. i was on my way back up the hill on an angle, and when i cut the wheel to the left to get back on the road, it leaned right, and that when i went over. i dont think i was going more than 15-20 mph.

i found a cab for cheap, but i'm not sure if i'm going to just buy another ranger and swap the parts over. either way, i've got alot of work ahead of me.

and yea josh, i was at brooks and dunn. we ended up all over the place. you coming to town for the next concert? i think brad paisley.

A Final Posting for this thread...

Dad didnt want the truck sitting in the drive way all summer while i swap out the cab, and i found a crack in the rear subframe. so i decided to strip the suspension, bumpers, seats, and engine performance, then junk the truck. i did get a new vehicle, wanted an f150 but i test drove an explorer and really liked the ride it offered(ironically it has RSC- rollover stability control). here's some pics and a tribute liscense plate to the rum runner that my brother made.

its a 2wd, so no bolt on lifts kits are available for it besides leveling, which allows 33" tires... it'll be a start.
