Are the trail gear springs a direct replacement for ranger springs? Or did you have to modify the hangers?

haha funny story!!! we thought we had to move them forward so we did and it was to close so we moved them back and that was to far!!! so we put it back to stock and it works perfect!!!!! hahahah only thing you need to do is drill out to a 3/4 on the hanger and shackle! but its pretty good!

SO HERE IS THE SKINNY......
yesterday i got a guy who texted me about my old 35 big horn tires so he wanted to trade me tires for tires and wheels.... there about even treed so i remembered that i got a guy who a a set of DANA 60 and 10.25 4.10 L and he wanted a set of 33 inch tires.... i texted him today and got the DANA 60's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i basically stole them haha
the front is not king pin but that is ok for right now

[IMG][/IMG]
so those are the tire and wheel combo i got for to trade for the 60's
[IMG][/IMG]

I would keep her the way she is until you need to swap out axles. She may end up not needing them and that will save you money in the end.
