Default Hello from maryland!

Hey guys, Names Justin. 31 yrs old. From Maryland. I enjoy target Shooting, 4 wheeling and turning wrenches.

I just bought an 05' Ranger after my 97 Dodge Dakota(wich was a good truck to me until the end..) finally bit it. Figured I would try to become part of a community. I have plans to mildly mod my Ranger to better utilize its off road capabilities and hopefully increase power a little bit.
I would also like to eventually level the front end a little bit.
I LOVE this truck!! The 4.10 gears and Limited slip rear make it a beast off road and in the snow.
once I figure out how to post pics, I will. until then, Im off to browse the forums.



Thanks Aaron!

Welcome from TN! Nice truck! If you want to level the truck, you might want to consider cranking the t-bars. It's easy, cheap, and all you need to do is check your alignment after doing it.

Wow, Thanks!
I have to look at that option. Seems like it is right easy to do. Any negative effects besides the alignment issue?

Thanks for the warm welcome guys..I have to get under it to see better but I glanced today...nothing that resembles the torsion bars from the How to thread...I guess I have to look more thoroughly.
fx4 level 2 is top of the line?lol. Man, I feel better and better about it everyday. I got it for a steal with only 45 K on it.

One question though...do they all ride like you are dragging a sack of potatos and it keeps catching on bumps or something?
