Is it hard to install, Ive got an estimate for an installation with a kit for $1000. They said ford rangers were difficult to install.

nothing changed you can use it.

also doesnt matter the kit double check fuel extension and vent size before starting because ford had about 4 different sizes and there is no rhyme or reason when they used them. a stop by the local home depot can fix that problem

I found that you will have to go back in and re-torque your cab mounts after 500mi or so. Mine started to loosen up a little and make "creaking" sounds.
The PA kit was very complete. Super happy with the results



Had a load of pallettes in the back - hence the raked look.

Do you notice any body/bed sway? Especially those who have a cap, because you can see it swaying seperately.

Body lift and cap. LOL nope no issues. thats the reason for wider rims and tires when you lift. when you go up you go out. equals it all out.

The PA and summit kit will work on 2011? if they have the traction control and rollover protections system and the other thing?

----------

And what size are the tires you have on your truck in that picture?

It will work if you only wanna run 6 bed bolts like the older trucks. Otherwise get the newer pa kit

Which pic the snow one?

15x10 wheels and 33x13.50x15 tires
