the steps will be coming off when i make some rock sliders. the only reason i have them on is for my kids. makes it easier for them to get in and out of the truck

well actually your truck is where i got the ideas from. i have always liked your truck.

the pin stripping is little gray ford embems. i have been thinking about takin it off but i dunno yet.

as for the push bar, befor i put it on i had the light tabs with a bar goin across with the 4 lights. i liked it but wanted something to set my ranger apart from the rest. and i had that sitting around from my old mudding truck so i figered what the hell and put it on.

the 1 inch body lift was prety easy and fairly cheap to do. it helps clear the 32s while 4 wheelin. the tires come close to rubbing so i know without it they would rub.

The 1" BL seems like the most useless thing to do in my opinion. If I am going to got through all the work to do a BL It'll be a 3"

You should have tried to get them to use stick weights on the back of your wheels instead of on the front edge...

Everything else looks good... I even don't mind the bull bar..

i like, that push bar is sweet. maybe could use a different mounting design. but as long as it gets the job done thats all that matters. what size of tires are you running. i have my 03 on 2" shackles 2" torsion keys, no body lift and i'm running 285/75/16 with minimal rubbing. i was also debating how big of a BL i should get because i'm not gonna run any bigger till i can afford some better gearing. and i off-road a lot so i want it to clear the 33's so if anyone knows. enlighten me

i have since got my tires re balanced with stick on weights on the insides of the wheels, i couldnt stand the look of the weights on the outsides.

i am running 32x11.5x15. i put new torsion bars and stock springs a few weekends ago and i was able to get another inch on the front. i could probably fit 33s now but when i go wheelin the rear tires really stuff up into the wheel wells so not sure if 33s would fit. then again i am using the the forst hole on the shackles so i could get a little more lift if i use the lower hole.

as far as money goes i am pretty sure its cheaper to do the one inch body lift, chevy drop shackles and crank t bars as it is to do the 3 inch body lift. i got the shackles for $40 and about $40 for the 1 inch lift pucks and new bolts and what not for the body lift. and of corse the t bar crank is free. so for me it was better to lift it this way.
