Beard used 5.5" TJ/XJ lift coils with his first SAS. I believe this picture is from that time.

Mine was an XJ axle but its exactly the same as a TJ.

Here are better height comparison pics

Grey Truck has 1" Body lift and 33s?
Red Truck is superlifted with 3" body lift and 35s
Mine is 3" body lift and SAS with 5.5" Lift coils. But really ou set the amount of lift you want from whatever coil and bucket hoop you choose.

Beard, I love that look of your truck. Don't get me wrong it's beastly and amazing now but I just love that look.

True, but you've got an F150 and a beater now to daily. Honestly if I owned your Ranger, I'd drive it around on the street a lot of the time still. Atleast to school everyday
