The Ranger: At Work and At Play

Well it's been a long time since I've whored out any pics of my ranger it seems, so yesterday I went out exploring and found a couple fun places to play (keep in mind there isn't much I have access to locally).
I'm a framer and have been fortunate to have new homes being built about 1 min away from my house and we're framing them so I thought I'd stop by the site yesterday and snap a couple shots there as well. If the weather had been warmer lately I could have had some much better mudding pics from the site but the ground is barely soft right now :(

so heres my ranger at the office, and having some fun offroad.

These 3 houses represent the last 3 - 4 weeks of my work life.

Thanks all. The lift is superlift up front, along with prekey because I have an 08. rear is beltech shackles and 4" skyjacker springs.

and ya that house is a lot bigger than the other 2 houses, which are both still 4000sqft..
the big one looks like 3 times the size but is only about 5700sqft. Couple years ago the guys I work with built a 24000sqft house! I'm assuming thats probably in about the top 5.. maybe top 10 largest houses in Canada. I think the biggest house we have in canada is just shy of 60000sqft... now those numbers are ridiculous!

Any idea if those exact items will work on my '11?

thanks for all the replies everyone. nice to know people appreciate the work I've done on the truck and like the stance... I can say I'm sometimes happy with the stance but other times I look at it and the front end just seems too low. I'm sure I could crank it up a bit more but don't want to yet. I'm waiting till I have enough money to get new torsion bars, ball joints etc up front.

Speaking of which... before I end up spending money on all new stock components up front, what could I get aftermarket that would work better with the lift, the steeper angles etc? I see a lot of people talking about MOOG components quite often but am not sure what I would be buying.

and in my opinion the house is not attractive. It has a strange modern/commercialish look to it... and its way up north in the middle of no where. In a location like that it should be some big massive post and beam home or something...

heres a shot

cool pics! always liked your Ranger!! and some nice homes you work on!

Johnathan with the 2011.. look into the Ford AdvanceTrac or whatever that new traction control feature is called.. i can remember someone on here saying that installing a superlift will interfere with it. Not sure on the details, maybe someone will chime in.

thanks again everyone. I can't help with info on the advancetrac system, never heard of it. Would be unfortunate if it doesn't allow for the superlift to work. Though I'm curious what it is.
