    The dust covers are on but do not clamp closed completely.

    Was able to get out in the sticks and take some photos, nothing new but the flowers blooming.

    Hey I'm looking to order the same thing and I'm assuming you've had this for some time now. Would you recommend after riding around a bit?

    I have a 3” lift kit from Eibach, major improvements over the stock spirngs and shocks. I would never go back to just a leveling kit.

    It's not the smoothest ride but it still rides like a truck and that is all I want.

    Anyone have suggestions on high quality air tank and air compressor, I plan on installing an air setup for use with tools and such.

    Sorry if I missed it earlier, but what are you using for UCAs?

    Outstanding! This is the exact ammount of lift that want and I was afraid I'd need new UCAs for proper alignment.

    BTW, your rig is looking damned good!

    Drove up to what I believe is the highest elevation in Orange County. We were driving through clouds, it was sub 40° and it was totally awesome. As I’m sure you’re all wondering how the ranger performed over a few thousand feet of elevation, everything was smooth as glass and I’m still 100% satisfied with this truck.
