I'm thinking of a roof basket. You and Parker used the ones from Walmart? I may go that route

Jaden where did you order your hubs from and what kind are they? How do you like them so far too?

Just google ford ranger rugged ridge manual locking hubs and look for the Amazon link. They were $130 with free shipping I believe. They've worked flawlessly and I use 4x4 almost every day.

I don't remember. The quality of the hubs seemed very good though.

5 years. I went with rugged ridge because it's what most people go with so I knew it'd work. I haven't heard of anyone going with warn.

I sell Mile Marker, Rugged Ridge & Warn hubs. Then again Warn makes the best of the best winches so Id figure the hubs are just as good as their winches

Just thought I'd do a little update on how the truck has been running since the the fixes done to it. So far its been good. However I have noticed an annoying squeak coming somewhere near the passenger front tire area. Im thinking it could be the swaybar end link? If thats the case I'll most likely just remove the sway bar.

I thought I'd also throw this here. The rake that the truck used to have seems to have gone down some. Idk if the shackles are squishing the leafs or what but I did a comparison to my brothers stock ranger, judging the rake difference. Keep in mind that its not flexing even the slightest bit as I've noticed this parked at different places.

Bros stock ranger

Bump. I'd like some opinions on the noise.
