Default Finally installed my lift

I've been wanting to lift my ranger for awhile now and it finally happend. I went with the Pro Comp 5" front 3.5" rear suspension lift kit. I put Helo 17x8 rims with Toyo open country tires. The install took about 2 days with my brother and myself. The worse parts were removing the rivots and pitman arm. Other than that everything else bolted up pretty good. Here's some pics.

Before




after lift and tires






new hid headlights


I'm very pleased with how it all turned out. What do you guys think?

There's nothing better than a lifted Steppie! Looks great.

Add some wheel adapters. Pushing the tires out to the sides would make it look tons better, IMO.

Thanks. It changed the look alot. I still have to put longer shackles on it to raise the rear about a inch to level it out. Over all I'm very happy with it. I just wish I could find a 4.10 rear end at the junk yard and slap a powertrax locker in it.
