The flare side fenders are so expensive to buy it's unreal. I just can't wait to have mine back on the road. 4.0 heads are the worst

I love step sides.
Around here they run around 200 for a complete bed but they go fast.

If you don't mind me asking. Is the only way to get a 6in drop up from by cutting coils? All i got up front is lower and upper DJM arms with drop coils.

I am looking to lower my 1996 2wd, going for the 3-4" (rear may be 5" I'm not sure) and planning to cut a coil up front to make it 4-4". I have shackles flipped in back which will cancel out some of my 4" in back, I assume I'm gonna need to flip them back to get the full 4. It seems most trucks on here are 98+. Also, will it be fairly easy to find a shop that will align this for me?

A couple years ago I bout a 2008 ford ranger so, and I never thought much of how low the front is. I think the front is lowered a little (I'll post pics tomorrow or so) and I lowered the rear 2" with some cheap drop shackles. I have 235/75r15s and with 15x8 cragar soft 8 (idk the wheels she had them when I bought her) and no other mods. Also, I don't like the lowered trucks that look like they have tiny wheels. I want 17"s with a deep back spacing that will make the tires stick out, 1) for handling and 2) so I can make a wide body ranger. I would like 255s or so since when I power shift I still chirp tires in 2nd gear, and it's scary in the rain with no traction control. What size lowering kit should I get and tires/wheels? I live in the country so there s tons of bumpy roads, so I don't want it laying frame. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks guys

^^ could go with some 17x8 up front with 17x10 in the rear. Keep in mind though with more rear grip that will tend to make the truck understeer if you’re serious about all around grip. Just for straight line though it’s totally fine. You could get away with a 2-3” front drop with a flip kit in the rear (4-5”).

Here's my truck from the side. The rear is leveled with 2" drop shackles, 235/75r15s all around. The front looks really low, and it's sitting on the bumpstops...could someone help and tell me if they think the front is lowered/coils are worn out? I just replaced the shocks so those are good. Would a 2/3 drop work if I also bought HIM tubular upper and lowering control arms, and will it still sit on the bump stops? Thanks.
