    Ride height issue on a 2003 2 door Sport 4x4 w/plow.

    My story. I put together a personal plow truck out of a 2001 Sport 2d 4x4 by installing a Homesteader plow, limited slip, and best of all a "rubber bushing thingie" that virtually eliminates that unsightly "nose-dive" look with the plow mounted.
