Turned out great! I live everything but not a big fan of the brush guard. Those flares with real bolts look good!

Random 4x4 Rangers got aluminum shafts as well. This was discussed a while back. It is literally random for which ones got it

Me and my dad did some serious rednecking on it...I would show you all...but you would shun me for my ghetto (also probably unsafe) mounting job. It involved cutting the front of the other trucks frame so I could keep the bracket thing from the 2001...also the brushguard mounts are part of it. The bumper and brushguard and brushguard mounts are all like one big piece. It was a long and very difficult project getting everything to line up right haha. The 2001 Ranger still doesn't have a bumper. Had to go to school...my dad was literally finishing up the welding 20 mins before I left

Yeah I am kinda unsure are the brush guard...but it will probably stay.. The mounts are part of the whole system. Also breaks things up so it is not as easy to see the gaps from the front end swap (not bad but not perfect)

Haha...I have a bunch of things:
3 inch BL
4 in suspension lift
6 in lift coils (so...5-6 inch suspension lift)
Shackles in the back to even it with the front

Also...I swapped the mirrors from a 2001 Ranger
