made simple u get the 3 in drop i beams mine is from djm then u need the cups on the and them u will weld the bracket to the side of ur frame and try and get bag straight as possible and thn hook the bag. thats made very simple it theres a lot that has to be done to achieve that i have 2 bagged rangers. my thing is way i am bagged it would have to be re-done to get more lift to clear larger wheels. also many dont like i beams cause the tire wear doesnt stay the same but i like them because of the lean they get so i will keep them on any of the rangers i get that have them

Thank you for answering all our questions. I've got another for ya. What are you thinking when you drive this truck around? I've been out in a 454 Chevelle freshly restored. Careful driving until a vette pulls up, then it was all out. Do you drive it like it's made of glass, or do you DRIVE it like you'd drive a 1986 Ford Escort LX???


I've never paid for a paint job myself, so I'm just wondering.


P.S.

Do you have purpose built skid plates to drag for effect or do you actually drag frame?

I've seen it both ways... I don't know why it's so cool to 'Drag Frame'. It only makes sense when you put a little steel between your truck and the pavement. When you wear through that bit O' steel you can weld a new piece on and start on that.

70mph Throw some sparks!!!!

i drive it like like anything normal i let it sit bout a half inch above the ground and cruise low and slow.i dnt give it hell i jus let it be seen and enjoy it. as far as dragging there is a drag bar on the rear of the truck i wouldnt ever drag at 70 but it is what drags whrn i drag. its secind purpose is to stop the fiberglass bed from hitting the ground when i let the air out. and no problem on answering the questions thats why i posted so people could see what i did and to get opinons and answer questions about it .


as far as the paint it is matrix andromeda silver on top and then the bottom color is mixed vetween 4 diff paints and then it has silver leaf down the middle to break up the paint with pinstripping around it

i was owner of the truck when that was done and bout 4 years before that feature came out. what are u trying to say the people that did it before mad mods and then before i owned it in florida well as far that. the bed if fiberglass so and tailgate skin and tailight fillers are tal therefore it is going to crack out. it has and it has been redone twice. the fenders had blisters ran in them so the bed was repainted the same as it was before but the whole bed was sanded down and reone the roof leaks it has been takien out and braced on the sides where it needed to be done before. and recovered with new material and put back in. so i ask what is the same or what have i just finished the only thing that pretty much hasnt beed re-done is the bodydrop. and maybe shaved door handles and cowl. so how that seems that i took a truck and jus finished it i dnt understand. and out of curiosity why do u have so much concern in finding what i did to it????

It's still a Sweeeet Ride.

Sorry to open this thread again but I saw this guys truck. And thought ya might like the look of his mirrors. There smaller and may suite your truck nicely.
