It's amazing the change a level/wheels/tires can do to overhaul the appearance.

Ranger is looking great! And that new bumper is looking quite interesting! Will be excited to see how it looks on the truck! I went and checked out the shop you work at! you guys have some neat builds going on there too! I will interested to see of that Izuzu NPR turns out for sure! haha!

Anyways, was wondering if you had considered some air compressor and air tank mounts the Ranger yet. I personally have the compressor on my Jeep and have used it for way more things than I ever thought I would have used it for, let alone airing up tires and such which is why I bought it in the first place! Would love to see some good mounting options for a compressor on the Ranger, and a good solid mount of a quick hook up for the air chuck too, like under the spare tire lock in the back bumper? What do you think?

Anyways, love the Ranger and excited to see your build!

With the 2.75" leveling kit and the 285/70r17 tires, do you experience any rubbing or had to do any trimming for the tires to fit? Also, what brand of leveling kit is it?

Those are the exact tires I got. Waiting to put them on when they arrive. They look great! Is there any road noise, and did you experience a bit of a drop in performance? LOVE the look!!!!

Sorry for the delay, we have been really busy building customer rigs. After we return home from vacation, we will start stage 2 of the build.

when you level your ranger, what happens when you put a load (say 500 Lbs) in the bed do you go nose up?

The bumper looks great! Wish it extended out some more on the sides to line up with extended flares.

The one on my truck is the prototype. The solidworks files were missing the flares. The production bumper lines up great. I will have it on my truck soon and post pics.
