Oops, I didn't really take a good look at it. I've seen some really nice tablet work on these trucks, turns out great, wouldn't be surprised if he tried it haha

So the "Maxtrac" coils I bought may be the ol' eBay switcheroo.
I only gained 1 inch in height, all the research and dimensions taken with the help of Wetto (mms1361) and Garfield.

Here's the dimensions (in inches) of our truck's height from the bottom tip of the rim to the lip on the fenders:

Garfield - Tyler - Wetto
FL 26.0 - 27.3 - 27.0
FR 26.5 - 27.5 - 27.125
RL 27.5 - 27.5 - 27.5
RR 28.5 - 28.0 - 28.125

Me and Garfield have almost the same exact truck, so our dimensions are most accurate. Wetto, however has an Extended cab and also a 2000 so a slight difference. But all 3 of us have 31x10.50 BFG's on 15 inch rims.

The Ranger Lean made no difference in measurements.
I emailed the seller on eBay with my measurements and demanded a refund, no response. I'll w opening a case with eBay and I'll be damned if I don't get my money back.

I'm pissed.

The guy who sold me the Maxtracs on eBay (shocking14u) said he contacted Maxtrac and got some info for me, and apologized for the delays, I acknowledged and he offered me a refund in exchange for the coils. He gave me the whole "your factory coils may have a higher spring rate to accompany a snow plow or PTO etc."

I asked if I could have their 3 inch coils and when I swap them, return the 2 inch after. Waiting for a response. Other than that, not worth it.

In other news, I was looking around on Craigslist for some used Fabtech spindles, after several hopeless text messages from a few sellers, none were available. I got persistent and just bought some WNP spindles online. Whatever.

Yeah the Doestch spindles are about $100 more for an inch less in height. Of course those are put aside when it comes to durability, but I've browsed around enough to hear good things about WNP.

Member 02BlueEdge has them and he puts a little off road abuse into his truck. So does that guy Dillon.
