125.75 inches just like stock.

well as close as we could get it, the drivers side is 1/16 of an inch longer than the passenger side, close enough i figure.

yea just laying on the floor, is the right one. that sounds about right. Im trying to gauge how far my 4.5" xj coils are going to compress, so i figure ill use your extended and compressed to make an edjucated guess.

hey, question .... ive never really payed attention to 2wd rangers with the torsion bar set up, but do you think you need anything where the old diff used to be mounted for any support or protection for the oil pan? i dont know if 2wds have anything mounted there ... i know the newer 2wd explorers have a support beam bolt in place of the diff. just a thought ...

-Jared

btw looking AWESOME
