The rear is about 1.5 inches lower than the front right now so I will put the lift shackles on to level it out better, plus I tow and haul bikes so I need the fender space. NOW I NEED 4.56s badly!!

Truck looks really good, but those wheels look small in those tires. I hadn't seen those on 36's.

im broke and I love these rims, id hate to just get rid of them. The tires are recommended to ride on at least a 8 inch wide rim so I figured I could get away with 7 inch wide rims.

awesome truck man. for once those wheels actually look decent with the tires, just a lil small. usually they dont go well with anything to me.

but, must be nice to have a new ranger and living the "high life".

I beat i up offroading behind my house, no rubbage at all, I thought I might at least have to shave the valence, but the bumper brackets for the body lift push it forward almost a half inch too. When it settles it might rub a bit offroad, but I have no problem with the fender clearance.

but yes, it is pretty much a street queen, I have a dirt bike for tearing up the desert, nothing I can build will go faster than that so i just play on road with this.

Very nice truck. I have always loved that color.

BTW... you should invite that neighbor of yours to do some off roading and show her a real good time.

Ive taken her (my neighbor) offroading before, we got "stuck", and had to stay up in the boonies for a while. Good times!!

I will lift the rear another 1.5 inches to level it, although it looks pretty level now, but the front is still higher

That is hot man! I'm with the others about the rims being smallish. Still looks sweet as hell.

It's amazing what a lift can do for apperance alone and off road capabilities. -Mike-

Exhaust, hitch, gaps in bed.

Fix those three things and it'll be perfect :-) I could still take you in my 4wd stock! (Had to say that to justify my extra money for 4wd haha)
