Talking New Ranger Chick in OC, CA!

Hey guys!
Just picked up my Black 03 Ranger Edge a couple nights ago
Im really excited and eager to start playing with it...its already got good sized BFG's and nice lil' rims on it, so im trying to decide what to do first.... spindle lift or exhaust/intake. Any advice?
Thx!

Hi! Welcome to FRF! Lets see some pics! And If you're gonna do a lift and exhaust, it's better in my opinion to do the lift first. That way, you can make the proper bends and everything that you want the first time with the exhaust. Also, if you plan on doing dual pipes, think about a reese hitch receiver. Maybe you'll want one later in time and if you get the duals coming out the rear like mine, you might not have clearance for the reese hitch receiver. Welcome again and check out the how-to's section. Lots of great stuff here!

Welcome to this Forum Lauren!

I would agree with Cooter ,and do the lift FIRST,
and than the exhaust.
I've seen some nice short exhausts that come out just short of the
rear tires. I think THAT looks COOL!

Welcome to the forum neighbor! I too suggest a spindle lift (assuming you're 2WD).
