Default Prerunner Enthusiast's Thread

Just a thread to appreciate prerunners, whether you have one or not, post up your plans, pics, ideas etc.

As for mine, its getting there slowly but surely, plan to have an LT kit built soon. Keeping the arms looking to get 3" out each side.

my ranger next to a real pre-runner













Got a 5.5 kit up front with camburg coils, bilstein 5100's, Doetsch lift spindles, and BTF uniball UCA's. Back end is stock besides lift shackles and bilstein 5100's. The plan was for a BTF mid-travel kit but at this point I may just go BTF LT in a year or so. Right now im more focused on getting a new axle with locker/4.56 gears so we'll see after that.

you have beams, which gives you the most travel, but for a start you would need to build new beams lol

Its not IFS.... but its not SA either lol. Its like a independent solid axle. Make sense? Apparently it has the factor off road suspension cause it has a shock on the motor mounts. The suspension is coils up front and leafs in the back.

And getting rid of the 4wd is waaaay outa the question lol
