Hadn't thought of that. I guess that could have contributed for sure.

yeah im thinking it did. bent up right in that location. but then again it also pulled the rear of the frame down so it may not have held up anyway

Hmmm, ranger lift springs are a lot more expensive, but it's really the decision of weather you want to take the risk or not.

I want it for the payload and such, but I really hate blocks.

Hmm...

i got mine for payload as well. but i plan to hack off the rear part of my frame and build a new one out of 3x2 square tube, fuel cell and maybe coils (depends on if i tow much with my truck as is now). my rear frame is just hosed.
