    There are a lot of prerunner setups you can buy for the later models as it may be what they are better suited for with the suspension setup on them. I'm not an offroad expert by any means, but I know that what comes on there is a topic of contention. The Raptor does come equipped with a lof of the setting for hill climbing and descent doesn't it? Maybe that is enough to appease the offroad crowd from a factory offering?

    Could this be a raptor body on a 3/4ton chassis? 7.3L raptor!

    That's funny, looks like what some Mexican shops do to the new Gen raptors.

    Broncos are very popular among the desert scene, have been for decades. Also don't discount IFS in rock crawl scenario's anymore, the worlds most capable offroads trucks have made the move to IFS and in some cases IFS/IRS

    Off-road does not equate to Rock crawling though. I sank a lot of money into the suspension of my 2015 4runner, and it is still not even in the same league as my Wrangler.

    In top professional leagues... Ultra4. The IFS rigs have become quite obviously superior to the solid axle trucks both at speed and especially on the rocks. Even my ranger slaps around my buddys rubicon on 37s in every scenario besides deep snow. I have said it in here before but it would be very easy for manufacturers to make center mounted IFS diffs (like what you see on side bys sides) and solid axles would truly be a story for the books even in oe applications

    Yeah, but my Wrangler is stock and runs circles around a 4runner with 4K worth of suspension work. Being able to spend $4,000 to $15,000 on a vehicle to make it the best off-roader is not going to sell them to people cross-shopping between it and the Rubicon Wrangler which is capable of nearly any trail straight out of the box. Pics of your Ranger?

    Yes because nobody makes a good OE ifs, I agree with that, Im more generally speaking that they could make the Bronco great with IFS still (they wont, itll be a lame ass generic ifs) but I can still complain about it haha

    Thought you guys might like this. This is being built by one of my old body techs Ben. The guy literally learned how to do body work backwards by fixing trainwrecks first and then learning how to do the finer finishing work, but he does amazing work and is a natural when it comes to fabricating. He can just look at something and put an idea together in his head and then it just comes to fruition with ease it seems. But I thought this was a pretty cool and simple looking custom job. He has owned like 25 Rangers already and has done various builds with them, mostly offroad. 53285572_10158115630014186_199405062286475264_o.jpg 53828687_10158159469244186_5607006025979789312_o.jpg 56721592_10158219360254186_5187065495534174208_o.jpg 56670173_10158219360284186_5055342374734004224_o.jpg 56649262_10158225008129186_8598703046907658240_o.jpg
