Why do you think I painted '06+ emblems? That's right...to be unique. I and many others didn't do those swaps because they were trendy, I happen to like the tails the most of any ranger tails and I was one of the first to have them on the site. Same goes with the 06+ mirrors. Your truck is pretty unique with all that damn blue and white that gets hella dirty fast on the inside. haha.

OHHHH...ford ovals...ok! the one I destroyed was already fubared...i was experimenting. haha.

looks good! but you didnt drop it, you leveled it! for a 2/2 drop you wouldve needed to get lowering coils or cut em, and thats exactly where my rear end sits at 31 inches, you only got 1.5 because its a reg cab.

and dude you NEED bigger tires

Haha yeah, I work at Discount Tire so I got them for free. I am refinishing my 16's so I can put them back on. Those are just stock Jeep steelies...15", and then it won't look AS bad, but I only have a 225/50 for the 16's, so it still might look a bit goofy. I'd like to get some 17's but I just can't afford that ****...even with the mad crazy discounts that I get....lol.

SMAKES - My attempt was only made to level it out, I don't want to rake out the front end, I was trying to get rid of that by leveling out the rear....but it's still a bit over an inch higher in the back so I thought about welding drop plates to the top of my frame and drilling holes to bolt the hanger too....anyone ever seen that done?

I say you should get under there with a wire brush and some Rust Reformer or POR and get to work on some of the frame.

Well in saying that, When I have my grizzly in the back of my truck, I hit the bump stops on speed bumps. That weighs about 650-700 wet.

Is there any way to drop the rear about 2 more inches without getting into to spending a bunch of money, and then obviously I would cut the coils in the front and call it a day. Maybe like a "near free" 4/2 or 3.5/2 drop?
