I haven't tried with the tools in the truck, we have tools at work for lowering spares, they wouldn't fit. I tried to lower it so a guy with a jeep could use it (same size tire and bolt pattern), he was already on the spare and had a blowout, haha.

if i can score on a 04/05 Sport Trac 4x4 ill be happy.

When the time comes ill exchange some phone calls with the CBP. For now the Nissan needs some love. it has a few bugs and i want a new cluster, the base models have a tach/clock delete plug and i want a tach and clock. also needs a head unit and speakers and reupholster. like so

Greatest thing just happened. Riding around in my buddy's 7.3 and he puts the pedal to the floor, when he hits like 60 there's a cop waiting so he lets off the gas, then a little shitter car merges and almost hits us, we swerve out to avoid it, then the cop lights up the shitter car and we slip away

----------

This just in, leaving McDonalds the people in the shitter car are sitting on the curb getting a DUI.

Getting that Mexican ranger legal over here actually wouldn't be that hard.

I literally think the only difference is a longer frame and 4 real doors.

Back at the dealership...inspection slip on the SS is expired fml
Plus, DMV wouldn't title our cars with both our names, which is required to get the cheap insurance. Since they are titled in our own names, we have to call the lien holders to make sure they're ok with that.
I knew there would be issues.

Is the frame actually longer? I figured they just used the ext cab frame and a shorter bed
