Be sure to check the bearings on that kit often! I know numerous people that have had there bearings grenade on thos kits. The stock 2wd ranger bearings are pretty small and don't like 33" tires all that much. Just keep an eye on them! I check the bearing on mine every oil change and before i go on any desert trips. Cant wait till i build my new beams with D44 ends.

Yesssss, I certainly know about those things! I actually race with stock Ranger spindles with the thought that if I'm out in BFE or South BFE (Mexico), I can always find one. But after 6 years of racing with those crappy things I have realized that if I would have just up graded to Blitzkrieg spindles, I wouldn't have spent so much money on wheel bearings.
Plus, I have never broke a spindle!

There is still work to be done there!

We're starting an F150 pre-runner next week. Big Red has been moved to the stereo shop! (this could get expensive!)

Also not to be a dick but you guys charge 2800 for the kit and install? That's highway robbery. Camburg only charges 450 for install and with the kit price that comes to about 2250. And they have been around a lot longer than you. If anything you should charge less than them for install. Even after taxes theirs is still cheaper.

They change what they want to charge. If people pay it more power to them. That is between the shop and the customer.

First, you don't know anything about us and second you don't know all the extra stuff we did! Also, there are other charges like alignment, and cams. Reread your post before you spout off; it says a lot about your character! End of conversation!

That is one sick 2010. I built that truck! Or helped build it I should say. I work at the Ranger Plant in St. Paul MN. I didn't think anyone would drop 25g's on brand new Ranger to do THAT with it, but its bad ass.

Hey Ray,

Actually that customer is coming in tomorrow to have his speedo recal'd. We are talking about what to do with the rearend. He wants to do bedsides next. I'm thinking about a 3/4 link system. I have to stop him from double spending. At some point I see us caging this pig and racing it in BAJA! Funny, how this was supposed to be an advertising vehicle for his business. Now he has dirt in his blood and the addiction will keep going!

If he plans on linking it i recommend giving Dave @ threat motorsports a call. You can beat the price of his link set up and its easy to install. You Can PM me if you need his contact info.
