WELL I HAVN"T BEEN HERE IN A LONG TIME
Anyways. Guess I'll show everyone what I've been up to. My Ranger is still kicking around. Just been a long rollercoaster ride financially.
Heres my biuld.
We'll start with its current condition.3" Body lift and 4" Suspy lift on a 78 Bronco D44 SAS up front. Shackles and Add-a-leafs in rear. She ***** level. Iv'e pulled the siezed 3.0 and replaced it with a 4.0 I got with the trans. Both rebiult 5000miles ago. Currently need to repin a harness and figure out a fuel line system. Its got the 01-03 front end conversion and she sits on 35 ATs.
Now the details...
We'll start inside. Painted the dash pieces and am lighting the interior with blue lights. Currently biulding a fiberglassed 10"sub box I'm locating in one the jump seat locations. No pic, but I've replaced the center console arm rest bracket with the metal one I believe was for Explorers ( since half of everyone here prob has a busted one lol). Obviously the radio yata yata yata...
So, I'm still putting the final touches on the SAS. Want better shock towers, need to order a steering link and the steering shaft, brake line, and weld up a trac bar mount. But heres a pic from a while back.
I'm running ProComps up front and painted my stock shocks white and put on blue boots. The coils are 4" Bronco lift. The axles are 4.,10s. The rear is a Xploder 8.8 LS. Loves the LS and Disc brakes, but a locker is in the planning stage. As I mentione before, new motor trans are in, but need little things for completion. Heres before it went in.
The frames been cleaned and painted. No pic needed I hope. Hangers were replaced before lift shackles went in. Altezza tails. All common stuff so I'll skip the pics. Lastly, I've gotta finish the stupid little things and buy headers/exhaust system which I'll be cutting before the rear tire. I no longer have that 2wd bumper valance so either i'll have to save up for a winch bumper or i'll go with a 4wd style 01-03 but def keeping the ORW baja light bar.Also will be removing the pin stripes. and on a final note...heres my blacked out emblem. hehe
