    mmm I disagree had one on my ranger and it was done right. everything was welded and bolted in with air tools( not done in my backyard with handtools and a 30 rack). rolled the thing over a 45mph and held up just fine.

    Is a body lift all you have? It looks bigger for some reason?

    It looks killer. What size tires? 33"? I love the stance of your truck. Who makes you suspension lift?

    Mine has 3" spacer lift and a 3" body lift, I wanted 35" tires and this was the only way to do it. My 06 can't do a 6" suspension lift due to the stupid VSC. The 06 is the only year with VSC that can't have a suspension lift due to a different computer. (I called Procomp and Fabtech) I know most people on this site say my truck is a piece of shit now but I don't care it's mine.

    i think that people on here are really bias....granted everyone brings up valid points and yes there is always a better (MORE EXPENSIVE) way to do thing in life but if your happy with what you do than that is the right way. If you want a spacer lift do it if the truck drives nice still and your happy with it well than you accomplished what you set out to do.
