one inch... find a ruler and look at one inch. nobody is going to notice that your truck is one more inch higher. not even you when you are driving. I'm not trying to be mean, I'm trying to save you the hassle of doing this and then saying: "crap, it still looks the same"

I bought my blocks about a year ago directly from performanceaccessories.com, and got all of the bolts from Fastenal. Granted, 1" doesn't sound like much--and you'll probably end up doing the 3" at some point--but it makes a hell of a difference on a Ranger. I went 1" instead of 3" because i wasn't willing to give up my Bassani Lightning-style exhaust--with the 1" gap to the rocker it looks perfect; I would hate it with a 3" gap.

All that work for 1" you would be better off doing a 3" lift.

the bumper gap with the home made 1" looks horrible

Front:

Locate the "witness marks" from each of the 4 factory bumper bolts and use them to locate the factory side-to-side position of the bumper. Then just make a vertical slot up 1" from each existing horizontal slot at the bolt position to form an upside-down "T". Slide the bumper bolts up into the new slots and the bumper gap will be comparable to stock. Trucks with tow hooks will have them 1" lower relative to the bumper opening.

Rear:

Less noticeable than the front gap and can be left as-is. If it bothers you, make a simple filler plate.

I'm with Bob on this one-
My front bumper fits better now than it did when it was stock-that's exactly how i did mine. For the back, i bought a piece of vinyl cove base molding, trimmed it to fit, and screwed it on.
Agreed-for the amount of work involved, you might as well do the 3", but check my post above for my reasoning.
