Is the drive shaft also something specific to the manual transfer cases?

No, just 4x4 vs 4x2, and cab size.

When I did the manual swap, I had to get a new driveshaft because 4x2 trucks have different driveshaft lengths between automatic and manual transmissions.

The 4x4 trucks only have two driveshafts, the one for the standard cab, and the one for the extended cab. Automatic or Manual doesn't matter on the 4x4 trucks.

Then there's aluminum and steel driveshafts. But I'm going with aluminum since that's what my truck came with.

Interesting. Mine is steel. I hear most ranger driveshafts are aluminum.

Yep. I don't know if there is a rhyme or reason as to which trucks have steel and aluminum driveshafts.

Cab is lifted and sitting on all of the lift blocks. Gonna try to get the bed up tonight, and then tomorrow I'll button everything up and add the little things.

Bed is cake as long as you don't have problems with your bed bolts.

I loosened all the bed bolts a few days ago just to make things easier.

Bed is now lifted as well. Body lift went much quicker than I thought. Pics when I get home.

Truck is now body lifted. Pretty much got the cab and bed up on the blocks and called it a night. A few little things are done like the ground strap extensions and the steering shaft extension. Still gotta do most everything else tomorrow. But at least the hard part is done.

Typical body lift pictures:

So does it sit higher, lower, or the same as pre 4x4 mods?
