This is the bumper I was looking at. Its not on a usdm ranger but I love the plates that fill in the gaps between the tubes.

That looks pretty sweet, it's like a tube bumper built to be like a step bumper.

Just bought Maxtrac Lift coils! Time to take those annoying spacers off!

and now we wait....
Did you go with a 3 inch or 2 inch?
Are they the same spring rate as the stockers?

I went with the 2 inch because I would need longer upper arms for the 3 inch.

And yeah since they have a different part number for the 4 cyl model and a different number for the V6 model, I'm assuming it's the same spring rate as stock.

Also Maxtrac is located in Anaheim Hills, CA which is only a 15 minute drive from my house without traffic. I could always stop by. Haha

These spacers are nothing but trouble man. My coils have sagged a bit and they pop and creak, I think they just don't seat correctly. Not really meant for off-road use.

Alright so heres the spacers i ended up installing on my truck. i wasnt very educated at the time (hence why those spindles arent on it)


And then my 31" BFG i got from the junkyard unfortunately had a gash in the sidewall that i didnt notice, but the guy who i sold my Primewells to had some bald ones on his! this one is a 30x9.5 but its a limp home! on my little crown vic rim.



And then for my rear bumper, that damn thing is still on there, im trying to push my insurance claim along. ford dealership estimated it at $916 OUCH. Body shop manager at ford said a ranger like mine came in with a similar accident, and the frame was bowed under the bed and had to total their ranger....yikes.

But heres my options, not exactly but what the general idea is.

I would like to have the extra weight on the end though. These trucks are too front-heavy. But Idk, it just doesn't seem like a Ranger thing us know?

I dont want to post pics on your build thread but i "tried" to shoop in the jerry bumper to give you an idea
http://prntscr.com/73gp3e

I like the look of roll pans on dropped trucks but then without a bumper the whole rear end is as good as gone if someone so much as bumps you.

Also, are you still planning on running the bigger with coils with the bigger spindles or just the bigger coils by themselves.
