    I am super excited to get started on my build. Thus far the truck is completely stock but I have ordered some goodies. Here is a photo I took this morning on my way to work to give prospective of where it all starts.

    Looking forward to see what you do. What all have you ordered for it? I am looking to start buying stuff for mine but I'm having a hard time finding anything.

    Turns out a suspension company will be taking my truck in and building their Ranger suspension on my truck. I’ll keep you guys posted and see if I can get a forum special going for us enthusiasts!!!

    I am told at this point to keep the brand name under wraps until the kit is complete. Should have all info for you guys in about 2 weeks.

    Can you tell us if it rhymes with "Schming" or "Schmox"? Is it the father of a prince? Is it's scientific name Vulpes vulpes? :bandit:

    Unfortunately it’s not your typical off-road suspension company, but I will say it’s an extremely well known company based in Corona CA

    Leveling kit has been installed!

    I am happy with the results and I am happy with the product. I will post before and after pictures tomorrow.

    The truck sits nice and flat now with a much more aggressive stance. Now I really can’t wait for the wheels and tires to show up.

    After
    44BB9AF6-8E36-4446-993A-377944C37BE9.jpeg

    Looks like right about 2”, was supposed to be 2.5

    Like I said previously I feel great about the way the truck sits so I am good with 2”.

    Tires and wheels are being mounted as I type this, the anticipation is killing me. Haha
