Default Someone Sent me an invite...

Hey guys, big time Ranger junkie, but noobie to this site. I received an invite from someone, but it didn't say who lol. I'm a member of many other ranger sites but I didn't know about this one, seems like a good place though. I look forward to it!

Oh yea, my truck is a 2003 Sonic Blue Xcab FX-4, running 35"s right now on a 3" BL, it is currenly under construction, about to be a hyrbid 7" Superlift with Torsion Bar suspension removed and replaced with a full Fox coilover conversion. Rear will be on exploder leaf setup with belltech shackles and Fox shocks as well. I'll have pics up soon!

Guys, I know you are all on R/F, and you will know my truck already:
As soon as I get full crank on this thing this weekend, and i'll shoot some more pics of the build, and have the parts pics up by tonight. Only thing I really have done so far is the rear end torn down.
I mentioned hybrid superlift, meaning i'm using some superlift parts, but not all. No blocks being used for the rear, I will be using a whole different leaf setup, so more travel room. No t-bars at all anymore. Just pretty much using the relocation parts for the front end from the superlift kit. superlift kit gives about 4" for the front, and my coilover conversion will do about 3"=7"

Are you doing the ORW coil conversion? Just wondering as I didn't know it gave additional lift.

Just a superlift with coilovers. Basically a RCD kit. You get rid of the t-bars and replace the front shock with coils.

Yes, doing the ORW kit, along with their rear Fox shocks setup as well. Superlift is 4", you can adjust the front coils quite a bit, up to about 3", giving you a total of 7" plus the body lift I currently have on it.

Bought it off of R/F from 02EDGE4x4, I just got it yesterday....he had a brand new front kit without knuckles sitting around that he had never installed, and he had posted it up in the classifieds. This was perfect because I didn't want to use the rear block kit and the knuckles didn't run too much either. Havin a custom front driveshaft built as well.
