One Year and alot of money later....

Well... it's been one year since I've bought my ranger. Just thought I'd finally post up a couple of pictures.




Stock Picture taken last year around this time.


First mod I got, brush guard

Now where it sits today.



Packers FTW!

Haha. Thanks bro. I actually got a pretty good deal on it. I know the manager at a&a and I got it for around 1400 and some change.

I think I'm going to keep the truck like this though for a while until I'm done with school. Then I'm thinking body lift + 35's maybe.

He said if I would've went with the 6" I would've needed it. You get what I'm saying?

nope because its wrong

both the 5.5" RCD and 4" Superlift will require the Superlift (double cardon) driveshaft at some point.

those are the only 2 lift kits made for 98+ Ford Ranger 4wd Trucks besides a body lift.

The RCD only calls it a 5" lift now on their site.

Thanks for the information. I didn't know that about the driveshaft. I best start setting aside a couple bucks here to pick that up.

Fail on my part.
