Or just get the superlift. That kit is hella strong (mine even survived rolling 3 times and still went to get installed on 2 other trucks) where as RCD's brackets broke on several occasions. You won't be disappointed, so long as you don't crank your torsion bars all the way up like you already have. THAT'S the reason your truck rides like crap.
i've given a SAS some thought, but won't that limit me to only crawling? i want a truck that versitle for both sides (crawing and dunes) and not just one extreme.

you can run a straight axle rig in the desert, Jeep Speed does and KORE makes some sick stuff for full size dodges. but IFS will work better.

I am not committed to the idea yet, but I am considering removing my RCD kit and installing a Dixon Brothers kit. PM me if you are interested and maybe we can work something out. Kit has been on the truck for 8 months and I have the original 600# coils, 700# coils and I just ordered 750# hypercoils (not installed).

Not much, working and family mostly. That and dreaming about a long travel setup for the truck. Did you catch my rig in 4 Wheel Drive and Sport Utility mag (April)? We ought to do another Ranger run one of these days. Maybe out to Sunflower mine or something like that. How about you?

p.s. Like the avatar!
