Finally got my ranger on the road after fighting to get the title straighten out for the last year and 8 months. Been done with the suspension for about 4 months now and i have changed a few things which are in my other thread. Since i had her out I took some flex shot today.

Wow, it's a nice truck. The wheels and the chrome grill are pulled together nicely. It would look sweet with some 06+ mirrors in chrome also.

truck looks absolutely amazing!!! nice job. whats the backspacing on those wheels? i think i want mine just a tad wider.

morris 07-15-2012 11:46 AM

It reminds me of Matt's before he hacked the shit outta it.

Gorgeouse truck with a spot on stance. whats do you have for the drivetrain? you mentioned another thread but i didnt see it with a quick browse. whats the approx lift height and tire size?

Ford78 07-16-2012 08:34 AM

Heres a link to my axle swap.
https://www.ranger-forums.com/solid-...-build-131913/
Its a dana 44 up front out of a 79 F250 and a Dana 60 Rear. Motor and transmission is stock and i just swaped transfer cases for a older 1354 so i could have a speed sensor and a front yoke.

I dont know offhand what the backspacing on the wheels are ,i got them used.
Thanks guys for the comments.

Awesome looking truck.

seed60 07-16-2012 03:19 PM

Very nice! Looks like the ranchos flex well.

Got any idea on how much uptravel/droop you have in the front?

green99 07-16-2012 03:46 PM

Looks good!

Im also surprised at how they flex. Could of gone more, never lifted the tires off the ground.
I never measured the travel while i flexing the truck out.

Dont have 4 wheel drive yet, ordered my rear gears today and they will be here wednesday and hopeing my mechanic can install them next week, Then redo my crossbember and get a drive shaft for the front. I dont have a wheeling trip planed yet, just saving up to get it four wheel drive. I know the tires are not going to be the best in mud and that fine with me.
