my new ranger

Picked it up on monday. Looks to be a 3" body lift and 2"suspension as well. I wish it were all suspension but that can change on down the road easy enough. has the 4.0 an has the auto (wish it were a 5spd) Allready sitting on 32x11.50's
Oh yea its a 99 with 104k on it.

I think it's just a 3" body, there are no 2" suspension for the 99 4x4s. Looks great though!

yeah, you do have 2" blocks in the rear. The 4x4 comes factory with them.

That's a great looking truck Steve. Very clean, and very pretty. Enjoy it!!

Allright fair nuff. Didnt know the blocks were factory. looked like one set of blocks was aftermarket. Guess I generalized the lifts as either a body lift or suspension lift. Didnt think of which category the blocks fit in.

Been a loooong day.

DEEP WEDGEWOOD BLUE FOREVERRRRRR!!!!!!!!


Good looking truck man! Way to add another member for the only true color of a Ranger. Remember, when the sun hits it and it turns the purplish color that Real Men Drive Purple Trucks!

Thanks guys, hopefully will be able to take it out in the woods this weekend.

I was originally looking for a 97 extra cab 5spd. But saw this one at a dealership an next day it was mine.
