I am going to try and write simple guides on most of the mods that will be beneficial to the Ranger Community. For simple questions that I don't make a thread for you can contact me. FOR THE 5.0 SWAP DO NOT CONTACT ME PRIVATELY. I AM WORKING ON THE WRITE UP RIGHT NOW. I am also going to get updated pictures of everything to post soon.

I'm going to try to keep this as informative as possible. Questions about items are fine, but if I have a small thread about it already please post in that thread.
