2004 ranger straight axle swap and build

I've owned the truck since new, first put in 3" body lift and torsion key lift with 33'' tires. In 2009 i straight axle swapped it and never started a thread.

That's great but do you have a question or a comment about the site? I have a feeling you clicked the wrong section. The welcome to the site section is under this one on the main page.
