insomnia+mods=very tired!

So for some reason I couldn't sleep last night and I still haven't yet. So at about 6am I decide I needed to do something to get me tired enough to sleep. So I finally finished installing the 06 mirrors and also installed all of my pioneer door speakers. Sucked because it was 80 degrees with about 80% humidity. By the time I was done I felt like I just got done running 10 miles I was sweating so bad lol.

Also a funny note about the 98. I had installed the 2/3 drop on it and needed to get new springs for it. So I bought some replacement springs from jcwhitney. Well even with the flip kit my rear was lifted with the new springs to a little higher then stock! lol. My belltech shocks are maxed right now. So I bought some 3" drop blocks I am going to install soon. Should get started on the rest of the front drop soon too.

Here you can see what it looked like with the old springs

don't run blocks, just put the stock shackles, and it should bring you down more

Normally no it isn't, but I was tired already, but couldn't sleep and the humidity definitely didn't help. Plus this was the first time I replaced the speakers on a 4dr ranger. So I had to figure out how to get the panel off lol.

Your funny...I am on the bottom notch on the lift shackle. The rear will only go down 1" if the stock shackle and it'll still be way to high at that point.

I'm undecided. Sometimes I like it sometimes I dont. Just have to wait till it's time to repaint the truck.

Nice truck. I wish my Dad would of kept his 98. His was a green 2tone with dark green interior. He traded it in for a 2007 sport trac limited 4x4 with the V8 though. Hoping to buy the ST from him one day. Hardly ever drives it.
