Say Glenn (I know we're juggling a bunch of topics at once here, my apologies)....just how hard would it be to do a lift on my truck? From what I've seen it can be done in a day with the right stuff and the right know-how. Like I said before I'd probably not go too nuts on the lift height but I'm curious as to just how big a job it is.

And of course if this ever goes down I'd welcome the help; I'm pretty good about holding up my end of the deal....usually there's a case of the good stuff in there somewhere.

Im not sure whats involved in a body lift on an older truck like yours....cant be muc diffferent than mine tho.
Took about a day and half to do mine....about 10-12 hours...
Removing old rusty bolts is the hardest thing....

Is your truck an auto or stick? If its a stick u will need an extension for the shifter....

I don't know why the 1 picture I have uploaded so tiny... stupid app.



I couldn't bring myself to take lots of pictures of the Ranger before I left- but the one I got when it's normal sized you can see how the gap for the passenger door is totally gone on the right side because the frame is bent to the right... yet the body panels are all in great condition. The front valence is torn up (a fog light got thrown), drivers side mirror is gone from tipping to the left.

Hopefully- less depressing pictures of a new truck in a week or 2.

Just got back from a fishing trip on LOW. Thought you guys would enjoy the pics of the bombardiers and tracked vehicles we rode in.

My truck is headed to these folks: http://www.manheim.com/locations/MAAI/events
So who knows where it'll end up.

Got the insurance check in the bank, ready to roll on a new truck and put this stuff behind me. It's going to be another summer for working on the truck and the house!

State Farm valued it at $6881, I might have been able to argue it up just a bit- but I wanted to make sure I could get the check soon. Some of the specs are still in my sig, it had 133k miles.

(they cut the check for the value minus deductible)

Manual. Are the steering/shifting extensions sold separate or do the kits come with them?

Okay, well thanks for the information. I've got plenty of time to research.

Right now I'm gonna start looking into how to switch the lock cylinders from my existing doors into the new junkyard ones....
