99 Ranger Build

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.













The last is pic is me and im 6' 1".
So far im pretty happy with it and have alot of future plan for it.

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.

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.

Very nice! Looks like the ranchos flex well.

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

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.
