bagged ranger

hello everyone, i have a 96 ranger lowered 6 inches on 18x8 with 45 series tires. i am determined to bag and body drop it 3". and im thinking about just putting it on a toyota frame.. that way it will have better camber and will be easier to get it to lay all the way out. basically i want to get away from the ibeam crap. i understand that it will take alot of time and effort..but its not my daily driver so im not to worried about that. just looking for other opinions on this..thank you

Lets see some pictures. Anything that is bagged and bodied takes alot of time, money, talent and effort. Some fabrication shops are better than others. Go with a good quality shop and tell them make your 96 lay flat. Its been done before.

i do not know how to post pics on here yet...
i will be doing most of the work and fabrication myself with some guidance from the owner of grant kustoms. i work there doing inventory parts such as roll pans...skins..combos....license plate boxes etc...ive owned a couple of bagged trucks and am pretty familiar with welding and fabrication....and along with the help of a professional..im pretty confident it will turn out good.. lol. what do you guys think would be the best way to do motor mounts on the toyota frame...? stock ranger mounts fabricated to the toyota frame or do some different kind of motor mounts...?

Are you using a Toyota frame or just the front clip and doing a stock floor body drop.

Word to the wise, take a look at the date of the last post before you post in a thread you find while searching the forum. Unless you are bumping for related questions it's usually best to let dead threads stay dead. I doubt anyone was in dire need of the information you posted.

I said word to the wise. Just a suggestion. Take it with a grain of salt if you want. That one was pretty nice actually, I went off on someone in another thread lol.
