Default Re: What did you do to your ranger today thread

I lifted the front of the truck by cranking the T-Bar's 9 full turns to get
it to sit level. Poor Rob couldn't figure out what happened to it when I
picked him up earlier today.... LOL

So I told him, what I did..... He said it looks good!!!!!


Thanks to everyone that done articles on how to lift the trucks using
the torsion bar method!!!!!!

Thanks, I can't wait until he orders the body lift now.... LOL

I'm looking now for more up-grades/mods that I can do to it......
You too, have a nice looking truck... I like the cap and want to get
one for Rob's truck.

looked at trading it in... dont need 2 vehicles if my gf is going to be a stay at home mom so would be trading the ranger and the gp... looking at 2012 EB FX4 supercrew f150s since i still need a truck and the payments would be just about the price of the ranger and gp payments now.

Got tired of my chopped up glasspack muffler. Went and had it all redone. 2 1/4 in piping. Magnaflow SI/DO dumped behind the cab. Fucking amazing. I'm going to lower, and after that I'll finish it with duals out the back.

For sure. The glasspack was okay at first, but it started sounding like trash as it broke in. I know I have a 3.0, so that was bound to happen. Spend $200 today and got a nice MF put on

Well I didn't do it, but the boys at Firestone put on two new leaf springs. I had a broken one that would occasionally slip out of position and make a huge noise while rubbing on something, but it's good now and I will be able to move some loads without worrying about it bottoming out.
