    Tired of buying bike racks for every new vehicle so decided on designing and building my own.

    Saw people replacing their FX4 stickers and decided on giving my truck a theme. After all, he is called Grimlock and I am pretty partial to the hyperblue color so I got with theJestergraphics.com about cutting me something up. Never have attempted something like this before but the overall look definitely set it apart. Here are my install pics.

    So, I figured it was time for Grimmy to get some new shoes. When I first purchased this truck, what got me interested was a model on their show floor. It was an XLT but it had a level and much nicer wheels and tires. Well, I wanted those same things because to me that is what set that truck off. I just did not want to pay 55k for it..lol


    So I did just that, went to 4wheelparts and ordered some Fuel Tactics 20x9 offset +1 and some Procomp 285\65R20 AT tires and a ReadyLift 3" level kit.

    End result : Love...lol

    And now......this. Started seeing pics of Rangers sitting on 6" lifts for the last month or so and I could not get it out of my brain. As soon as I found out my Ford dealership would warranty everything if I did the install there, my mind was made up. Went with the BDS 6" IFS system and FOX 2.0 shocks. Just wow, this is the stance I am looking for. bye bye mpgs.

    Looks GREAT! Nice job! Did you have to do any modifications for rubbing issues with your tire/wheel/level set-up?

    Alrighty! Just saw this post after I asked about “rubbing issues”? No chance of rubbing anything with a 6” lift, eh? Again, lols GREAT! Nice job!

    Yeah, I had to cut the rear crash bars and completely remove the front ones. I think this lift is supposed to be good for up to 35" tires though.


    Yeah, this:

    • Tire & Wheel Combinations
    • 35x12.50 w/20x9 and 5.5-6" back spacing
    • 305/65r18 w/18x9 and 5" back spacing
    • 33x12.50 w/17x9/18x9/20x9 and 4.5" back spacing
      *Trimming may be required*

    Can you share more details on this bike rack/bar you made? Material sourced, measurements, etc.
