Probably like a 2/3 drop. It's a DD so I don't wanna get crazy.

I'm 3/4'd (which turned out like a 4/5 almost) and my truck is a DD.

I say go with the 3/4 if your funds will allow. It's a tad more expensive than dropping your truck 2/3, but with beams as opposed to drop coils, you'll have much fewer camber issues.

Got my new seats in. Some 88 Mustang seats that I got for $40.00. No rips/ tears or cigarette burns on the seats. They were just a little dusty from sitting in the garage. They bolted right up to my 97 Ranger seat tracks. Perfect fit. Had to give up a center console for now until I figure something out. The dot you see on the passenger seat is a raindrop on my camera lens.

I didn't know anyone made a drop coil for the 97's.

I kinda knew the guy, so I figured I was getting a little bit of a discount.

Pulled the instrument cluster out and disassembled it. The lens was dirty and there was dirt in between the lens and the gauges. Also replaced a couple burned out bulbs in the cluster. Nice and bright now. Looks and performs like new.
