that's fine, i hate chev all together, but i would never put ford parts into one, even to increase it's value, just like i would never put a ford motor into a honda (well maybe, a 5L civic hatchback does sound a little appealing)

Looks good. But why does the RCD kit not come with upgraded UCAs?

I find that kinda weird too.... That's why I say run some Fabtech uppers or Doetsch Tech, they're great arms.

i got it off here from off road warehouse for 999.99. its normally like 1300. definetly am thinking about some controls arms. didnt know if the fabtech ones would be any different though. so far i love the kit though. cant wait to get it off road.

I wouldn't... I wouldn't jump a ranger with aftermarket UCA's.... Better yet, I wouldn't do it without a DBR kit or Camburg..

Heck yeah! They will relocated the ball joint farther out and down giving it a MUCH better angle. Also check out the Doetsch ones as well.

Yes I have the Fagtech arms, I have about 2 1/4 - 2 1/2" of coil lift and absolutely needed them. Really even after just 1.5" you should be running them

your truck looks great you are my hero i think ima start saving up and slap one on mine 35's have been my goal since i bought my truck i may just go with the fabtech 5.5 ontop of my bodylift idk if the fabtech uca's will work with your rcd due to the fact both kits come with there own coilsprings

not trying to thread jack but with the proper regear will my 4 banger turn 35's? my stock ratio is 4.10's

if you put a 10:1 in the rear, you can turn 45's... but is it worth it?
