LOL...Thanks...I still have some tweaking to do with the suspension. But I like the way it looks. There's no other Edge, let alone any other Ranger that looks like mine.

Hey EdgeRat33 I was looking at pics of your truck and was curious. On the 2nd page of pics your truck is not looking as low and wearing the OE wheels. What mods got it to this point? Is this how low it got before doing the control arm swap. Thanks.

I wouldn't call a 2wd Edge as having an offroad package. To each his own. It looks damn good and very well done. IMO.

I wanted the rubber/vinal floor. In 03, they didn't offer this option in an XLT. Finding a SOHC in an xlt was a pain as well.

To make a long story short, I've had to take an ' Edge ' and strip it to make an XLT to achieve what I wanted.

Not everyone thinks ' OMG! Lifted truck!! way cool!!!! '. I can't tell you how many idiots I know that lift their truck and never even take it offroad.. Hey, Its their truck, they can do with it as they please.. even if its function is never used.

How many people buy trucks and don't even move anything? Never used for function...

I remember that too but I cant find anything on it. I also remember going to the website and seeing it myself so I know they make one. Anyone have any luck finding anything?
