Looks like it has the RCD plus a body lift, his front coils look saggy though.

Haha dang, you beat me.

Yeah i thought so too and it did look like the front was saggin a lil. If he bought he wouldnt do much too it right off other than drive it for awhile. Ive been tellin him about this site and hes been gettin excited and plus he saw my truck when i got it all done so hes been in the ranger mood..lol!!

Yes, they make higher rated springs, which add some lift.

It might look good if you put like a semi trailer on the back to level it out. Other wise looks sweet.

Looks like rcd and the rear does look like it was body lifted and not the rest haha. Looks like a sweet truck though I'd buy it. I'd ditch those stupid looking tails though.

That truck needs new higher spring rate front coils to pull the front back up to level with the back, 35's, gapguards, and new taillights. Then it will be nice, not a bad starting point though.

That looks pretty good, but the front does need to be a tad higher.

I agree stone!! But it is a good starting point, just needs a lil revamping. I'm kinda jealous becuase IF he does get it he'll be taller than me.....dam!!
