Meet my first Ranger. It's a 2019 Lariat Fx4. Currently on an Icon stage 1 lift set around 2.75-3" roughly. Wheels are Venomrex VR-602 17x9 with a negative 12mm offset. It was the first in the country on them which is cool I guess. Tires are a 33" Duratrac. Lights are Cali Raised ditch lights, but I have a set of KC Dual Flex lights to mount instead (I have an obsession with lights apparently but who doesn't). All controlled via the Lightforce panel to keep it clean.

I'm guessing it wasn't me since I have no idea where Williamson is. It rides incredibly well. It's definitely stiffer than factory, but in a good way. It feels much more controlled on the street and offroad.

If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
I don't know if this device is real but it would get you the sound you're after if it is.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I sniff fuel for a living. Don't judge me!
The truck does look great, even if I am sick to death of red.
