Finally getting around to doing cooler stuff to the dange, since I updated you guys last I put on some 33x12.5 bfg ko2's, regeared to 4.56, put some btf uppers on. camburg coils, and adjustable clevises with 8 inch camburg limit straps (I know cute). Next week I will be pulling the bedsides, tapering them, and getting a simple back bumper made.

Also I have a few questins, anybody know how long the camburg coils take to settle? I had to have Chance at Califab put them in because me and my buddy could'nt, and the uca is sooper close to the frame at ride height (1/2 in) How long will it take the coils to settle because I dont want to get an alignment until they do...

(Also enjoy these pics I snapped)

You've been doing some good work! From what I've heard you need to beat on the truck a little bit to get them to settle, time for some high speed speed bumps!

KO2's are great. Love mine.

Coils will take a while to settle. Just beat on them a bit and they'll soften up. Make sure the end of the coil spring on the bottom side is lined up between the two holes on the lower control arm bucket. That's how you align them.

Have a pic of the front end? Here's mine to compare.

Wow, it has been too long since i've been on here last... ill give an update and things to come!

So, I put my stock coils put back in and powder coated them silver, got the bedsides pulled and a temporary back bumper put on for now,
and just mounted up my fiberglass, ended up going with mcneil and the fitment was a good 8/10. The driver side is in a little more than an 1/8th inch in from the door but i will try to figure out a way to push that out a bit. Truck goes in next tuesday for paint (and paint for the front bumper) on witch I will be installing a composite 6" lip from Desolate Motorsports with some camburg washers to dress up the front a bit. Didnt want to do the standard prerunner bumper every ranger has, and this is more cost effective so I can put more money into suspension *wink

Here are a few pics to keep you guys updated:
