Got Skinny!!!

got the new wheels on today. sadly i didnt have enough time to balance the rear ones but oh well. still need to order another rim for my fullsize spare and tomorrow im out to buy metal so i can get down to business on makin this thing a 4wd vehicle.

At the end of the day...i actually ended up not spending a dime and made 60 bucks haha

Gosh that thing is sexy! Hot did you manage to stuff those fog lights in your grill? Did you have to relocate that oil cooler? (or whatever type of cooler it is)

I didn't realize you had alcan rear springs.
It seems that, while most ranger owners feel the rear springs flex well, it is only because the factory front is so damn stiff! Almost every solid axle Ranger I have seen flexes the front out completely while the rear is hardly doing anything.
