beef I hope your kidding because your not going to want to do a SAS right now. Yes its nice and tight to have but there is ALOT that goes into it and cutting up a newer truck with lower miles isnt usually a good idea unless you have a DD and you just want to do it.

The way I see it, if you don't beat the absolute $#!t out of your truck, you don't need an SAS.

Actually it was verified tonight that in fact it is a RCD/BL on the ranger Stu, Mike was wrong as he don't know a lot about rangers, But Sam came in before we finished my lift and verified 100% that it was a RCD and not a SAS, He actually told Mike How you can tell as it is very easy to do, Don't ask me I don't know nothing about these ranger except that I do a lot of my own work.


p.s my suspension lift looks good, I did doesche spindle/ 2 inch spacer up front and shackles/expo leaf in back, I got a slight Rstangboi going on, I kinda like where I am now and may sell my PA bodylift, it really looks good at 5 inch in height.
