I ran outboarded shocks my truck with chebbies before i went links. Worked great, especialy as far as on road manners.

Dang Zach that looks great. I like that bed a lot better. It looks like the front tires stick out a lot more than the rear, is that just a optical illusion?

That is good it started fine, I guess you did something right in the wiring and fuel lines Self priming is the greatness of fuel injection!

That is the sickest looking ranger on here hands down IMO... I'm so glad you got rid of the step side... I hate those, that's the only thing I could have wised for on your truck and you did it! HAHAH

drove it wow, much better than i could have imagined. its not even closely aligned at all and the tires are not balanced and i had it up to 60 down the back road. love it. need to get some more brake fluid and find someone with a power bleeder, i still have air in the lines.

it need a steering stablizer for the road though.

pics....








I hate bending brake lines...

It looks amazing Zach, but the tailgate looks very strange. What are your plans for the bed?

looks good, bed is meh. I know its temporary though. steering stabilizer is a bandaid for a different wound. maybe its all the heims youve got and your fuel cell holder has booger weldz

but all petty things. I like it, time to go four wheeling!
