Well i am looking at picking up a 93 regular cab long box for cheap, 1500 bucks, 4.0 stick shift. anyways i am pondering the idea of solid axling it rather than just lifting it with a kit. I don't wheel it alot, but sometimes playing i get rather throttle happy, especially playing in the snow
. I would rather build it one time and make it to last, plan to have it for quite a while. i know the 4.0 isn't a powerhouse but it should do well with 35's, which i plan to run. So i am looking at 6" of lift or so. Now my question is what would be the best to run? I plan on keeping coils up front, so i am thinking on picking up a set of bronco axles and swapping the rear out too, just for the added beef. Now how close are the springs up front? Will they work with the spring bruckets i already got? also plan to run 6" ranger springs up front, then just mount the radius arms and track bar. The steering box will work and just needs a new drag link right? Or would it be better to do fullsize axles with cutouts? the cops aren't too keen on rims sticking out 5 inches on each side these days. any input or advice would be good. If everything works out, i got 5grand to **** away on this build and i got the 35's in the shed. I think it's doable.
i'd like to build it similar to this, but with coils and no airshocks and 35's instead of 37's. dangeranger01 off TRS's truck
