Talking Lifted!

Finally got my 3" lift Doetsch spindles on the ranger. its awesome sitting up so high while driving. the pain of doing the lift was getting the old ones off, couldnt get the abs sensor out of the old on so im running abs-less for now, but who needs brakes while you can just roll over everyone. i love the stance of it but might later on get some shackles and put it in the 1" lift point, we'll see. well on to pics. and i know my(i think the correct name) camburg is off, gunna go get it aligned be for my 4 hours a driving next weekend for the next florida meet












Also got a OEM hitch from my buddy put on, was a PITA to get off

Looks good man!

Hate to be a buzzkill though, but that didn't really make that much of a difference for you. It kinda looks more like you cranked your t-bars and pulled a leaf from the rear. :/

50 lbs won't bring it down that much. You need to do shackles, and then BL that thing.

Dewd, just take the tow hooks off and have some custom ones made. The spindles don't make enough of a difference and I honestly think you will eventually want to go higher.
