Sweet. I am still waiting for parts because Fat Bob's sent me the wrong shock TWICE, and Bilstein struts are backordered.

100% agree and why mine came off to begin with. The bigger trucks it looks fine on, cause their bigger, it just never looked right to me on the 5 lugs. More aggressive look without the plastic...

No problems with the struts. Honestly, if you installed the lift without me knowing i probably wouldn't have been able to tell from a ride standpoint. It's definitely stiffer, but not as crazy as some people make it out to be. I'm doing almost exclusively street driving, so that might play into it.

I feel the same way about the ride quality. I have been up a few maintenance access roads since I put the lift on and it really doesn't feel any different, except for the extra clearance underneath. Only problem I have is if I hit a sharp bump or speed bump the stock shocks in the rear will top out. But that will be handled when I get the extended shocks installed.

I can vouch for the longer shocks. Dont need it, but it's nice for that exact reason. I also kind of feel like the stiffer suspension, even though the truck is taller, has cut down on the pitch and yaw of the truck when turning sharply. It might just be me, but i assumed it would make it worse (i was in a base model Ranger before getting this, so i really dont have any frame of reference).

yeah there is definitely less roll in the turns. I think because its just a mild lift that stiffened everything up it has helped. Put another two inches of lift and it will probably start to get top heavy no matter how tight the suspension.
