back to this. You have 08+ keys. You can max em if you want. pre-key (07 and older) you can also max without problems, other than ball joints eventually. I maxed my bars and its even still in alignment. I finally got pre keys and will take before/after shots. Should raise the front another 1.5-2 inchs or so. I also got the 07 and older lift blocks (1.5 inches taller than ours) I will have maxed pre key #1 bars and shackles with a body lift and be clearing 34-35's in a couple of months ;-)

As far as messing up your u joints up with a tbar crank? Thats BS! Does it bind them more? Yes! But not enough to excessively wear them out. I know of people on here with 100k miles+ on a tbar crank. Your ball joints will wear out faster... but for how cheap and easy they are to replace. Who cares?! I went through a set of ball joints at about 60k with maxed bars on my 2002, 2-2003's and 2010 4x4 Rangers (combined). You will find out they need replaced by then anyway sometimes. In my 8 years of owning Rangers I have seen this first hand.

Stock:






Maxed Bars (#1 bars, 08+ keys):

I just turned them till they stopped, then backed them off 3/4-1 turn. You will normally be 1-2 turns difference on each side due to ranger lean. I measure from center of wheel well to flat ground.

I suggest going ahead and buying some wet okoles for them
I scotch guarded them. No issues with the grey getting dirty so far. But the material is ruff like burlap & every speck dust or lint shows up like a sore thumb.
Maybe the material will soften in time. But were I rest my elbow you can see were it rubs my skin off..
Thus the quest for leather seats.

back to the grilles on ford rangers all the current rangers after 2010 have the current XLT grille but the sports have it painted to match. Back in 2009 the stx grille was put on the sport models and that was the only year that happened.. im glad i bought a 2009. thats for anyone that was curious about that. but by the way very nice truck. i just got rims put on mine and a brush guard
