Your shackle angle looks terrible! At full droop the shackle should be vertical and at full stuff the shackle should be horizontal. Or as close to that combination as possible. Just my opinion tho.

never ran them but from what all my toyota buddies say iroks are awesome wheeling tires but might as well be made out of butter on the road... they are one of the best snow tires from what i've seen... my friends dad has a cj on 36" iroks and he pulled me out in the snow when i had my thornturds, he never spun a tire and he was crawling all around my truck... just to piss me off i think ha ha. we should wheel this winter if i ever get my 85 going.

did you NEED to shorten the axles when you had the dana 44 and 9 inch? do you know if the mounts would be good where they are to fit on a ranger or would you need to move the brackets
