    well sorry its been a bit but got the lift in last week thanks to mp and all the help he and my girl friend gave me. it went in pretty easy with minor scrapes and bruises. rough country had me stack blocks in the rear so i now have a total of 5in of blocks in the back with massive amounts of wheel hop when you get into the gas. all in all not bad but will be looking for new leafs or traction bars soon. here are a few pics of the truck now.

    on the lift about done


    all done and ready to hit the road


    i tracked my gas mileage from the soo to ohio and im getting around 21 mpg from the 23-24 i was getting before so not bad for a lifted ford ranger.

    Still call BS. The EPA claimed number is 23 highway (when new) and we all know that is always an unrealistic number.

    that's what my calculator and my girl friends calculator said i didn't belieave it at first but i checked over and over, hell i even looked up how to calculate it just to make sure i was doing it right.

    i worse i saw from it being lifted was from Pams house to Gaylord taking back road with a lot of hills and i was still getting 19.5 mpg. in my book that's still not bad for a lifted ranger

    i second that !
    I talk to him when I'm lonesome like; and I'm sure he understands. When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands; then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat. For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that. ~W. Dayton Wedgefarth

    Nice Ranger, always nice seeing other RBVs offroad. Those rear hangers are a guarantee rust off, got to love the blue oval.

    I didn't even look that hard at the picture, just assumed it was the rear. Guess I should have looked closer. Very surprised to hear its the front, doesn't happen often. How's the rear looking?

    Without a doubt, I completely agree. If one is that bad the others are very close.
