I don't know but I can tell you one thing, once I get enough money, I'm going to get a custom frame and drop my truck down! come to think of it, I can do it right now if I wanted to but I don't want to blow my money lol.

i have the weakest "f" bars and there maxed out. they have been holden great so far. just my ball joints don't look so happy haha there in a little of a bad angle but not as bad as i have seen some other rangers when they go way to far on them. But i really would like some b-bars so i wouldn't have to max them out to get the ride height i love.

Ya number 1 bars are stiffer.

When you crank the other bars they will start to sag overtime.
