New shocks on, had to lift it a little because the shock was longer....made a bastard pack in the rear. Lifted it about 2.5" in the rear and 3 in the front. To lower it back down I will have to make new shock mounts.

You might like it this weekend at that height. It might fix you binding problem in the front and throwing the driveshaft.

Actually by lifting the truck, it would increase binding at the yokes as the case is now higher then it was and the diff stayed in the same spot.

Drove it into town to drop the girls off to dance, then went home and drove it up a tree...I love this thing.


Once the b2 is wheelable, I am getting a big list of things to do. Swap leafs to shorter explorer leafs, put In an intank fuel pump, redo my front shock mounts, fix my transmission leak at the pan, put full hydro on it, and a bunch of other little things....felt good to drive it today.

Moved the ranger yesterday, my daughter stopped me and said something was leaking. Looked and it was trans fluid puddled up in my skid plate...looks like I'm gonna pull that off this week and see where I am leaking. I think the trans pan is just smashed up, but we will see.
