Front sits lower, rear sits higher.

I'm probably gonna have to get rid of the AAL in the back because the truck has some nasty rake going on.

Just get you one of those torsion key lifts. They are all the rage and you can crank it infinity inches with no ill effects.

the dent in the tailgate would bother me

It bothers me too. But it's been there since before I bought the truck. Kind of a battle scar.

both my rangers had dented rear bumpers when I bought them. Luckily with the 05 I had an extra bumper laying around for when I wanted to bed swap my 99. And it also got me one step closer to de-chroming my truck

I have a laundry list of appearance items that need to be done once I get the transmission and transfer case in.

Body Lift - Done.

Gonna take the leaf springs apart for the 20th time tomorrow and remove the AAL to hopefully bring the back of the truck down closer to the front.







Also, brown santa brought me this:





Thanks Greg!
