Can I borrow $1450? I won't be able to use the deaver leafs or sport rear glass, etc...I figure it's worth it to have the bed.

i found a 4" widened Solo motorsports LT front end for sale for 2k...decisions, decisions.

Leafs should work, maybe the wrong spring rate for a lighter Ranger, but they should bolt up

No shit! i was under the impression that they were longer! That's awesome. The leafs are actually pretty darn soft right now, I found they were a bit too soft this weekend as I was using my bumps quite a bit. Plus I like to carry a lot of extra crap with me when I go out so it may just work out nicely.

Do you think that's a good deal for that truck Jamie? I'm not sure what motor it has or how many miles, but I'm planning on calling the guy tommorrow. Worst comes to worst, the drivetrain and everything will get transferred from the explorer. Gotta love the 5spd.:D

So the deal with the longer leafs people put on rangers is just more travel then you have to flip the shackles or something? Sorry never paid much attention to rangers.

shackle reversal is common for Rangers and can yield mad travel numbers and improve the ride for the kind of stuff you like to do

just anything you won't be needing. depends if your going 4x4 or 4x2. i mean if your doing 4x2 with coilovers, then there's plenty of things. but if your taking most of everything (beams, coils, buckets etc) then stuff like fenders.

Well I picked up a 94 GMC sierra as a daily driver and moto hauler, so the explorer is gonna stick around for a while. Gonna pull it off the road and tear into it hardcore when I get back after summer. Coilovers and full cage should be pretty cool!:D

I like the teal color...looks like you have a surplus forestry truck in your driveway! Can we at least swap your tires to the new truck...just until we cage the 'sploder?
