Tighten it until it snaps then back off a 1/4 turn
My friends shop is now back open. He's letting me use a lift for a couple of days to install 4/5 DJM kit. I will be starting tomorrow morning, can't wait. I will have some pictures.

Well, we got it done. A complete 4/5 DJM kit. Started a 9:00 and finished 4:00. Rides great, alignment on Friday. Here's what she looks like now. I'll get better pics tomorrow, I'm tired.

I don't count birthday's anymore...just happy to be looking down at the ground instead of looking up
Picture of badge
Looks good, but, I'm a "gotta look right" person...the 4.0 badge dosen't quite look right as it dosen't have the same slight radiused corners as the Ranger badge.
Maybe something like this below the Ranger badge...
This one is a bit large, but there are hundreds of 4.0 emblems out there.
Just my opinion

9x18 and 10x18 245/45-18 and 275/40-18. With the 2010 and 2011 rangers having advance trac and RSC the tires have to be the same diameter or it messes with those systems, it will also screw up the anti lock brakes. These tires are all 26.7 all the same diameter, so everything works as it should.

I generally think lowered trucks are idiotic but yours really looks nice.
