to do the rear end flip... you need the flip kit..BUT
.
on some ranger there is a bar ( small and kinda thin) that kinda follows the rear end and its connected the the axle.
where the bar connects to the axle, there is a plate that u can use for a home made flip kit.. but u have to weld it the axle vary carefully.. we did this to a bud of mine ranger back like 5 yrs. back and its still going today.
i can get pic. of what im talking about if u need them or want a more info.

Me thinks some times you don't know what you're talking about *scratches head*



IF someone is paying $500 for this:

They are beyond stupid.

Its $60 bucks my bad. Unless you go with the 3 inch one with the lifting shackles thats more like a $110 because it comes with bigger shackles to lift it up to 3 inches.

And there is no welding or messing with the perches when installing a flipkit all it does it basically put the axle onto of the leafs.
