Looking good! What size tires are you running and what kind of lift are you thinking? Any other upgrades coming in the future?

31's. I've been debating on whether I want to get a body lift or suspension lift. Not real sure tho. First thing I gotta do is replace the ball joints before any other upgrades come.

nice! just an fyi if you dont know... you can level your truck out by turning the torsion bar bolts, if you do crank your torsion bars id do it the same time you are doing the ball joints because you will have to do an alignment after doing both of these things. better killing 2 birds with 1 stone

The 2000 Trailhead package, the 2001+ Edge & some later Sport packages (along with similar Mazda variants) would be the only 2WD Rangers to have torsion bars.

Torsion Bar Setups (Source)
98+ 4x4's(Mazda's included)
'00 Trailhead
'01-05 2wd Edge(Tremor included)
'06+ 2wd Sport w/ 6cyl
'98+ 2wd Dual Sport
'98+ Troy Lee(excluding 2500)
