Default Hey

I'm Anthony Green.

I'm originally and still claim residence in SoCal (San Marcos (San Diego County)), but I joined the Air Force in December of 2009 and I just got stationed in Georgia, so that's where I'm at right now.

I previously owned a 1997 Mazda B4000SE. It was all stock, manual and got into a wreck and was totaled.

Went about a year without a ride and picked up a 2005 Ford Ranger Edge 3.0 Supercab in July. It's an auto and all stock once again. I have recently become interested in lifting it and would love any kind of advice. I know the torsion bars put a huge limit on it and I wish that conversion kit offered by ORW was still available, because I probably would have had my dad pick it up (living only 5 miles from the Esco shop).

I really don't know what I'm looking at yet, just getting started with all of this I guess haha. Looking at price vs performance, I don't know if I should just suck it up and go with let's say a FabTech 3" Torsion Bar lift, or actually convert. Any suggestions? Haha.

Thanks and greetings,

-Anthony
