New to rangers , many mod questions
Hello , while I don't have a ranger just yet I'm in the market for one. That being said , I have LOADS of questions... I'm looking at more or less building a 302 powered pre runner. Looking for any tips /tricks any one may have to offer. Are there any kits I should stay away from? Any worth knowing about? While this isn't going to be a race truck I do take full advantage of my cars/trucks when I can so i don't want to cut any corners or skimp out on any thing.
I came really close to buying a ranger spash , last second I turned it down bc I had heard there not a good one for this type of build. Anyone know why that is and for that matter witch years/trucks to look for? My only thing is it has to be 95 or older. Don't have exact specs set out yet but I do know I'm going to use the motor and rear end from my mustang as I'm building new ones for it.
I know this is over kill but as they say , there's no kill like over kill lol.
I've got a nice 306 with eledelbrock heads , f cam , ported tubular gt40 intake , 70mm throttle body , 76mm mas air , 24lbs injectors and a tuned chip for the set up I'll be droping in. Rear end is a 8.8 with 3:73 gears. I'd like to run a built aode in it but most I see have a aod. Why is that? I realise I'll have to get alittle fancy with the gauges , that's fine. Anything I should expect or avoid here?
Any ideals and input would be awsome. I've always wanted to do a build like this , more or less just looking for the truck and alittle bit of tips at this point. Eventually I'll be needing some fiberglass body panels but I want to start with the motor then love travel kit first. Thanks in advance.
