Long travel ranger

My buddies and I built my buddy some +5in arms for the front of his ranger. He took out the front axle and cv shafts so it's 2wd if you were wondering. We did all of this in one night. Part of the pics are the arms and comparison pics to the stock arms and them on the truck. He recharged his shocks for the new set-up so it doesn't sit quite as flat anymore...

Must be nice to have money to throw away just cause you wanna build something. You guys should plan things out better! This is like the 3rd thread like this.

Truck looks good though.

lol sounds good to me. I love all of the haters on this site. It's amazing how some things can actually defy the odds and work! Hmmmm. Must be a miracle!

It looks even more badass with the wheel spacers on the front. He took those off so it's "more" street legal until he gets fiberglass fenders.
