Ya ben, one of the first things I feel it needs is a wench and tow pack after that ima start diven into high performance shocks and leafs, the rear has what I think to be after market blocks under the leafs, I could be wrong tho and it actually came like that. Those kind of questions are part of why I joined the forum to begin with anyways tho, the rear end sits a lil higher that the front so I wanna balance out a lil bit. I need to get to a pc so I can upload some pics, I am on an android phone at the momment.

the rear on stock rangers sits a bit higher than the front from the factory, if you wanna level it out just crank the torsion bars, its free other than getting an alignment. winches are good for wheeling, and shocks there are tons of options and depending on what kind of performance you want you have some options with springs too.

Soooo the six inch or so blocks that are under the suspension leafs in the rear are probably stock? Yea I figured I would have a lot of options as far as what I could use for shocks and suspension for the truck. (Big part of why I bought it)

oh wow 6 inch blocks arent stock, i think stock blocks are 1.5-2 inch blocks... as far as actual lift kits the options are really limited lol, you have a super lift or camburg or dixon brothers...

I don't think I would be looking for soo much of a lift as much as more performance in the suspension. I don't mind if I end up pickin it up some but height is not my motivation
