And this is where I'm caught up too. Since Rough Country came out with their 5" lift last Summer, I've decided to buy and install it by Winter '19, along with some other goodies! I also finally found a Camper Topper/Shell, (that's actually made for my truck), last weekend, about an hour West of me for $175. It's a Tri-Glas top, (spelled correctly), and was a truck bed cover/cap company in Alabama that went out of business in 2007. The camper top looks great and will carry everything needed for offroading, for my wife, dog and I. It will get painted Grabber Blue, in the Spring and it needs a few misc. rubber/hardware pieces, then it'll be permanently installed on the Ranger!

Awesome build so far! Just picked up an 05 with a blown engine for cheap. Currently getting truck tore down to swap in new engine. Interested on your take on the RC 5in lift. Will be my first model after the engine is in.
