YUUPPPPPPPPPP pretty much finished the lift today, just waiting on my brake lines and alignment. Started the lift yesterday around 5pm finish today around 12. took about 10 hours, had to drill out the stock rivits holding the radius arm brackets and the axle bracket on the cross member.... Now time for tires I'm thinkin 35's just to have some get up and go......

Very nice! i really like the gen 1 Rangers.

And it definately needs 35"s! I would say 4.56 or 4.88 if you go with 35's
