Bagged rear done

Finally got everything done. It rides alot better than before, especially since I dont bottom out on the frame on every other bump. I still need to get a tank and valves for the rear. Im also getting a fuel cell cause my gas tank doesn't really fit right in the bed and I had to tie it down with straps. It may be a while before I do the front cause Im gonna get firestone 2500 instead of the 2 2600s cause they're too big without cutting alot of the spring pocket.

I know next to nothing about bagging trucks, but the truck is looking good. I'm happy to hear you're thinking of a fuel cell, that gas tank in the bed is scary.

Gotta love all the lifted guys on here frowning down on you because its lowered and bagged. Should put put a bodylift or suspension lift and some bfg mt's on it!!! God forbid you lowered a 2wd ranger their are offroading beasts you know..

Get that gastank between the bedsides I dont know why your having an issue getting it between them Ive seen tons of rangers have no issue doing it.

Things could be worse like driving a 3.0 with big tires.

Many Show quality trucks re-use the factory gas tanks.

I've even seen show winners that were bodydropped and put back together with sheetmetal screws.......I dont think that somebody who does something different should be ridiculed.

But yeah man, the factory gas tank from a single cab fits perfect in the bed sides, just stick the smaller side down in, and force the bigger side in, it will be snug, but fit good, then just get some sheetmetal, cut into 2 strips, and use self tappers on the floor and the back wall.
