i sold/selling it for 24grand. i built it when i worked 10 minutes away from work, thanks to the automotive collapse i will hopefully taking another job 55 miles away, so i need a truck and a car now, so eitherway i win---get a lifted ranger to play with a cadillac to commute with, win win IMO.

can you drop the front diff without removing anything else?
Thanks for the plug, Pat!

The link below has all the info you'll need to make your own Superlift shaft for half the price. Towards the last pages, Beard posted up a link to the correct adaptor you'll need. Head over to a junkyard for a 95-98ish Explorer front shaft(make sure it's not the 'ball/cup' style that's on 98+ Rangers. I don't know the year the Explorers went to that style), throw in new u-joints, get it shortened & balanced(because of the adaptor), and bam! You got the $450-550 Superlift shaft for about $200. I went brand new on all my stuff and clocked in at just under $300.

I like the fiddy! I'd change a few things here and there, but overall it's awesome man! BUT..if there's no real need for a Fiddy, why have one. I like the potential Ranger that has tons of potential to it. It looks like 10" rims on 32x11.50's or something like that. Kinda looks realllllly goofy! Certainly isn't 10" and 12.50...I have those and tons her have it and they aren't as baloony. I vote continue the plan for the front swap. And do something about that ugly Superlift skid. Get rid of the logo. Always hated that skid just because of that 'in your face' logo.

lol, I hate those nfabs with a passion, I always have.
I don't understand lifting a truck and then running huge steps that hang down so far.

People like to stack spacers on top of lift kits and tell everyone they have a 9" fabtech lift and whatnot. Why anyone would spend the money on a lift kit and then stack spacers on it still baffles me. I just want a couple more inches of height so I can get the control arms back (close) to stock angles and get more down-travel back.

people are cheap is usually the reason, if you got a spacer put in the bilstein shocks at least, don't buy another spacer, how ghetto. best one i seen was a fabtech lift, spacer ontop of coilvers, and cranked coilovers the angles were vicious...
