Looks good Trevor! I just hop that the front looks right with the bumper back on. Those front whaleels pushes forward like that is bugging me. I'm a symmetrical person and its just throwing it off. What were the purposes of pushing the axle forward?

Shackle reversal in the front, so when the tires tuck up front, they tuck up and towards the firewall. So if I didn't push the axle far enough forward, it would rip off the fender on tucking.

Symmetry kinda goes out the window on a SAS like that. Some things remain symmetrical like you'd like, but axle placement doesn't.

Thanks man! It's come a long ways. But I'm happy with it now... For now... LOL

There's still many other SAS'd rangers you have to look at... Compared to a few out there, mine's nothing!

That looks great. Im glad that front bumper worked out well, looks nice and clean. This may be a dumb question but what's the total lift on that truck? That thing looks like a beast.
