topping out T-Bars

I went to crank the t-bars today and i cranked the drivers side first and i topped out and woudnt go any further. But the truck didn't even raise 2". And on the passenger side i cranked until they were even but it still could have went in alot. Is tis normal or is something wrong.

the passenger bolt is much longer than the driver side, so it will stick out farther and still be level. why, i dont know

Yes that is normal. the drivers side of the truck is heavier therefore the bolt has to go in farther for the same results. To my knowledge 99% of Ranger Edge's are this way.

zach i thought about doing that for a while, but you can really only crank so much before you get issues with the upper control arm.
