Thanks guys, Ive wanted to lift it like this since day one, plus I also wanted to try 36s since not too many people had tried those on a coil spring ranger with bolt on stuff.

I need gap guards badly, and I agree on the hitch being so low, I might just get a custom one made or have this one modified. Im in love with these rims so they wont be going anywhere any time soon.

Anyone know a place that will install gears cheap in SO CAL? Im thinking about going with 4.88s for the acceleration and ease of towing, but 4.56s would be nice if the next set of tires are just going to be 35s, i dont know though???

Yeah ALON, hit me up dude, Im job-less right now and school is out so I couldnt have more time to hang out. I do need a job though so if anyone has any ideas?? I am a hard worker and I am very clean cut. I am also a fast learner which makes up for the lack of experience in a lot of positions.

update, I do rub under major flexing, in the rear though. The front barely rubs on the inside of the valence. I would like to find an edge in the diamond bar area with spindles and a body lift on 35s, I want to see which one of our trucks is taller.
