No spindles on this bad boy, doing longer coil springs for 2.5" up front and 2" shackles in the rear, should somewhat level it

I got Belltech 6400's, got them from Summit and they arrived in 4 days(not to bad since I live in Canada)

I'll be installing them once it gets warmer and once i have the front coils....no gangster lean on The Silver Bullet!

So it snowed a lot last night! and what better way to spend a saturday morning then out in the snow blasting through snow drifts!



Kinda funny, while ripping around I was blasting snow right over the bumper and hood in really deep stuff with no problem, right after I got stuck on my flat driveway because of some ice under one tire and the tinniest rut....need a locker

Had an awesome yet very cold day out quading! 700+ pounds in the A** end and you could hardly tell it was there for power going up hills, plus it gave me the prerunner stance




I left the big quad for my dad, "Bertha" we call it weighs well over 800 pounds and was VERY tight in the Ranger box, with some hardcore sag going on

Found out the limits of a 2wd with an open diff today haha, I had just gone to canadian tire to pick up some "Traction Aid" things like this -


Right after I went to a parking lot that I knew hadn't been plowed yet to test them, long story short the snow got REALLY deep fast with tons of ruts and I got stuck. Oh and the traction aid plate thing is useless with an open diff, all it does it stop the tire from spinning that it's under, the other just blazes right up and you go nowhere! Lucky my buddy in his 4x4 Dakota showed up and towed me



Doesn't look to deep but at certain spots were well over half way up my tires and he made it look easy...defiantly need that locker already

Had an awesome day at Seddons Corner with my buddy, was really fun but short

Impressive for stock suspension I'd say...and I'm ordering spacers and shocks later this week


Not tuesday but still..


His rear left tire was completely off the ground...silly dodge can't out flex a Ranger!

These is where the trip kinda took a downfall...while stuck in the deep snow he managed to push snow up through the frame into the engine bay pushing the power steering line against the manifold melting it

We would have been nothing without a shovel and tow straps
You can faintly see me stuck out in the distance(only time I actually couldn't shovel my well out of and had to be towed)

It looks like you have 4 rear shocks in your cart.
