id bet the shorter bars would hafta be custom made, would make things considerabley more expensive. unless there is some other application that jus happens to be a perfect fit.

If you read the site it requires the stock Tbar mounts to be moved back on the frame anyhow, so the guy's who can buy these aren't using shorter tbars, they are just relocating the mounts. Id spring for a set of relocators if they come around to making them for Rangers. I've already emailed them. I'll start emailing them dialy if I don't like their response LOL>

matt make sure you let us know what they have to say in response to your email. im interested in their point of view.
movin the rear tbar mounts on a ranger is gonna be a large undertaking. the tranny crossmember is tied into the tbar mounts, and the mounts themselves are welded to the frame.

If I don't get a response by the end of Saturday my daily emails will commence. I was looking at what you mentioned yesterday, being its all one big clusterf*cked mount, custom/aftermarket bars may be in order. Then after I had that thought, and tallied up the more than likely cost, the RCD kit would be X times cheaper if someone is really worried about their bars.

Here is their response I recieved today. I will stay in contact with them/him to see what all they have going on.

"Matt,
We have wanted to add this application for quite some time, a few customers in the past have attempted this, but never got back to us as to whether or not it worked out. The issue will be moving the torsion bar crossmember back toward the rear wheels since the front end of the torsion bar will be moved to the back side of the a-arm!!

any word on this ? I'm hopeful this can work for a SL . I want the SL but damn those bars hanging down. I am too poor to get an rcd lift so torion bar relocator is perfect

Never heard another word from them. I would have to guess though, that the SL plus torsion bar relocator, would put you at the same price of an RCD kit.
