for now my ranger is coming off the road until possibly spring, so i need to drive that for a while, but as for more plans would like to switch out leafs for a more flexible setup, 38'' tires, dana 60 swap, possible rollcage, way down the road possibly a different engine(diesel). i have already replaced the floors, cab corners, bottom of the doors, to get rid of all the rust. the bed still needs to be floored the rest of the way, and strengthened in a few areas, i have alot of plans lol i have all the time but not the money so i work on it as i can

no 9 inch dad and i got in argument so i don't get to drive anything of his, and my ranger is off the road now, so im screwed to go anywhere till the 77 is done, but being stuck at home all day is a great help i got no other choice but to work on it


but today i pulled the bed again, made my driveshaft the right length, got new u joints and put it in, its not too bad from what i can see, its got a little wobble but i never plan to have the truck up over 45 50mph. i tried to break it a little it held strong but well see what happens when its on the road. but as for tomorrow i already know whats happening to it... not looking forward to making my own wiring harnesses for blinkers, tail lights, 4 ways. the ones in the truck dont work and i dont feel like wasting any more time trying to figure it out
