lol just messin with yea.

ordered a new pitman arm yesterday, decided just to cut that old one off.

also ordered the parts for my new Stainless Steel Brake lines in the front. that place is awesome, told him what i was doing and he ordered the parts, never asked for my name or payment info and he said he would build them on the spot when i know the correct length.

other than that, i still dont know when im gonna start :(

well i found the receipt from my last order with them and the fittings raged from 5-10 each and the brake line is like 1.50 an inch? Plus the build charge it came to 121.99 for 2 15" lines.

i figure i need at least 30" per side so somewhere around 150 - 175 i bet.

BTW they are DOT certified and that is mainly why it cost so much compared to the lines you see online.

He told me last time he was making them that he has to get a DOT approved stamp for the fittings every year and that his machine is inspected every year as well. Basically that stamp is related to his company, my brake lines fail DOT tracks it back to him and its his fault.

Zach, I've been meaning to ask you a question... Does the stock mounting width of the lower control arms match up with the frame width/locations of the Ranger? I remember seeing one pic of someone having to offset the the mount for the control arms to the outside... They may have been on crack or using some weird type of control arms though...

On my throwing the parts together on the trailer and jack stands i measured roughly 34" across.

measure the frame from the outside to outside and my truck measures 34.5"

not to mention my arms are completely adjustable with over 2" of adjustment i dont think i will have any issues at all. the arms will mount right under the frame rail. like that white ranger.

i have a much firmer pedal then i had before. i like the feel of the pedal compared to most cars/trucks that i have drove. since it is firmer i dont need to push the pedal as hard either to stop
