Man the truck looks great! I love the new wheels and tires. 335s on a Ranger?!? That is Kick Ass.

They did do that, it was the first part of the build, now they're pretty much making a race truck out of it lol.

I love the stance of the rear tires. I wasn't a huge fan of the brake cooling vents on the bed, but i think once they finish all the body work and get it painted, it will look great

It was, and then it ended up on Ebay. I found the old auction listing showing a high bid of 18k that didn't meet the reserve:

Looks like Ryan from Trucks! got into business with his brother. If you want info on the truck, maybe he'd be willing to talk: http://streettrailandtrack.com/Contact_Us.html

Anyone know if the load capacity of the bed with the cobra IRS in there is compromised?

The IRS won't handle nearly as much weight. It has softer springs and a different intended function. If you haul or tow a lot of weight, then an IRS isn't a good idea, but a Ranger may not be a good idea then either.
