Thanks man! Yeah I'm happy with how it turned out so far...

Today we should be done with steering and brakes up front as well as the shock setup.. Tomorrow should be all in the rear and figuring what spacers I need up front to match the rear width

Looking good man. Why not full high steer though since you already have the arms? Not enough room for the tierod with the leafs? Atleast thats what it look like to me.

So I got my adapters on the rear tonight after some cutting and grinding to get everything to line up and sit flat... Then I put my 37's on front and back and the rears with the adapters measured out 51" inside tire to inside tire... The fronts came out to 48" at the same measurement.

So with that measured it tells me I need 1.5" spacers for my D44 to equal out my track width. Surprising how much wider that 44 isn't... Only 1" over my 8.8...

And another shot from the night with the 37's at ride height...

E, I set up the wheel alcers last night, those aren't the 63's... I had to do some work for those adapters to sit flat and work right. Only put the rears on so I could get a track width measurement. Turns out I'm only 2" wider in the rear than the front so I'll be throwing 1" spacers on the front.

Carol, its actually not as tall as people think it is in pics. Its big, but its not huge, ya know? Cory had the same wms to wms as me if I'm not mistaken... D44LP and rear 9" which is the same width. Just had wheel more offset wheels.

Thanks man!

Its a local fab/off-road shop that does it. He works for himself but does awesome work. That\'s the reason I waited for the right one instead of making one... Its clean and simple.



If people are interested, my buddy and I thought about piecing together a front hangar kit for leaf sprung SAS rangers using his front hangar. His company is called Off-Road Components in Boring, OR and the guys name is Dean. Real cool dude...



Anyways once mine is done and if enough people are interested, id be willing (and my buddy) to build a front hangar kit for our trucks. Id just need people to sell to.



Should be starting on the rear tomorrow and hopefully finishing the rear tomorrow as well. Then Thursday will probably be a day of checking and fine tuning everything.

Personally, Loko's taste better... The grape and the lemon lime are incredibly hard to beat for the price and what the end result is lol.... Takes a $40 bar tab down to $5 real quick!
