New to the Ranger Forums but have been lurking as a non-member for a couple years as I have been gathering ideas and information to do my SAS.
I am from Utah and most of my background is in drag racing. I have been working at an offroad shop as a salesman for about 6 years now and figured it was about time to get involved in the offroad scene.
Hopefully these pictures post.
The truck is an 04 FX4.
I used a cherokee HP D30 and stuffed it with 4.88's and and chromolly shafts with 760X Joints. As for suspension I used a BDS Long arm kit for a Cherokee. I built some brackets to mount the cherokee crossmember that came with the BDS kit. I used cherokee 8.5" BDS springs and a BDS Cherokee track bar. For the steering I used a First Gen explorer box and build my steering out of GM 1-Ton TRE's and 1.5" .250 DOM tubing.
For the rear I used a Explorer Disc rear axle and geared it 4.88 and added some extra shims to the factory limited slip to tighten up the clutch a little.
For the rear springs I used rough country's 3" Explorer pack which gave me 5" and I used a 2" belltech shackle as well as a factory height block.
I also ran FOX 2.0's all the way around as well as a FOX steering stabilizer made for a Jeep JK.
Look forward to being on the board and getting more ideas for the Ranger.
