I also like, your truck looks just like mine did at one time...with the exception of the color though.

they'd look even better with a Cragar 1/2" spacer pushing them out a hair.

ill have to look into those but these 265/75's barley tuck into the wheel well. i want to put on these fake bead locks but i have no way to attach them cuz i dont want to drill the rim.

Looks good.

As for more flex, maybe you could have, maybe you couldn't. Loading dock ramps are the best for flexing on. Give one of those a try, then you'll get your maximun flex out of her.

Its a common myth that sway bars keep you stable on the highway...But all they really do is limit body roll around corners...Just drive right, rangers arent sports cars, we cant do 60mph on a 70degree turn. With that in mind you wont need the bars and you will be able to flex the truck better.
