Ford Rangers, F-Series, etc. / f150 suspension height
« on: October 30, 2009, 07:08:44 AM »
i'm new to prerunners and i have a question. if i buy deaver springs, what height do i get? i'm looking at the dixon front suspension for the 2wd f150 and it doesn't list how much it changes the height. it just lists the amount of travel. but in the photo it obviously is lifted more than stock (unless the bigger fenders and larger tires are causing it to look like it has some suspension lift.) i'm making my list of things to get and need some input. i don't want the truck to sit uneven. thanks for any help you can give me.

Introduce Yourself / minitrucker lookin to build prerunner
« on: October 28, 2009, 02:25:50 PM »
hello to everyone. i'm completely new to prerunners, but have built a few other things. it all started with a tuner honda civic back in the 90's. back then they called them custom compacts because import tuner wasn't really a phrase yet. then i moved on to minitrucks and built a s10 and helped build a few other trucks with friends. i've had a great time riding low with the minis, but now i want to get some more ground clearance and a 4door fullsize for my growing family.
i can't tell you the $1000s i've wasted buying parts i ended up not needing or replacing for something else. so i need everyone's help to start off on the right foot. i have a million questions. but i'll start with these:
4wd or 2wd?
automatic or standard?
is an f150 basically the most common prerunner?
is a cage necessary to start with?
any texas clubs/groups/shops?
thanks for any answers. i'm not really looking for a debate about 2wd vs. 4wd. or auto vs. standard. these debates have been going on and will never end. i'm looking for what most people use, what will work best and be the simplest to build with the most avail parts. i've done unique before and ended up having to try and fab parts. so to start my prerunner build i want what is "the industry standard" if that makes any sense.
