Wade, how much you want for yours if these don't work or aren't what I think they are?

If not, I think I may try some grand Cherokee springs because they will fit best with how I am retaining them.
if they turn out to be what you need you can have them and if they dont work out just give them back.

Ranger is ready to roll again

New bump stops installed, fuel leak repaired, new 14 bolt yoke with u bolts installed (old one was too wide? The u joint would slop back and forth because the yoke wouldn't hold the caps tight enough cross width wise) put v8 zj coil in the back, added a hook on the front axle for a suck down, replaced my front driveshaft straps and double checked the rest (broke a strap in Missouri and almost ruined my weekend) and I nut and bolted the whole truck

Minus detailing it, I'm ready for Drummond Island next weekend! If I have time, I might even put my uhmw skid on and put the sound deadener /insulation on then maybe paint the interior!

I'm going to just plan on a new, heavy duty cell. Either build a custom one, or find one close to what I need and mod it to work with the in tank pump.

I like yours it'll probably be the same one I end up with if I don't go custom.

I will miss the full doors I'm sure, but the protection and ease of getting in and out is great.

I do plan on skins in the door area, then maybe a removable door/window for winter time or rain.

Took the ranger to Drummond Island and wheeled Turtle Ridge offroad Park. It was pretty neat terrain, very challenging in spots and very relaxing to cruise around d and enjoy the views in others.

As usual, per CTOR regulations, we had a dick measuring contest and out rigs took a serious beating! But, we all drove them back out. Was a riot, only carnage I took was a bent hydro ram, bent front drive shaft, some wasted rear bumps, and some new dents and bends.

Was a blast, hope to see some video later!

Now I need to prep it for July 5th for the sand lake bump and hustle course and maybe some dune abuse!

Who's gonna show me up at Sand Lake? I hear Randy's lawn care may put $100 towards the best in show! Let's get this thing going!
