Thanks for welcome back!

Plans are 4.56 gears, lockers front and rear, little 31" tires and a small lift. Nothing crazy this time.

Haha yeah guys I know what you mean, but this little ranger wont get too crazy.

I do still have my 6" lift with extended radius arms and all, but it wont be going on this ranger.

The old black B2 is in a junkyard sadly...it had to go and die.

What good is the lift just sitting around? Slap it on her, might as well.
