Im suprised you like them a lot better. Obviously I am sure they are a million times better on the road but I figured off road the super swampers would have destroyed them.

But never the less looks awesome man. Makes me want another white ranger so bad. I was trying to hold off before I bought another one but I guess you ruined that lol.

Oh btw I tried dropping you a PM but I was trying from my phone so I dont know if it ever went through.

Any more plans for it?

Well after going threw the truck from the last wheeling trip, found out i bent the rear part of the frame by the shock mount. The top of the box is closer to the cab than the bottom and i can see the mark on the frame where it bent.

Well it's' been a long time since I've been on, I lost all my info to get on here so I started a new one. Last fall the 3.0 gave out on a wheeling trip, head gasket went and I drove it home because I was pissed. Decide to yank everything out. So she looked like this last winter and most of the spring this year.

So this spring/summer instead of going on vacation I cashed out my vacation time and spent more money on my girl. A buddy and I did a performance rebuild on 351w and I went threw the transmission and transfer case.

I got motor bolted in and now just finishing everything up, had to recess the radiator in the support, did most of the wiring last Thursday, also pick my drive shaft the extended. I hoping to start her up in about 2 weeks if kids/work/wife allow.
Still need a few things here and their bit have mostly all the major thing taking care of. Tuesday plan on installing the hydraulic clutch setup, since it was originally a auto. I know I skipped a lot of stuff but here is a pic of the motor installed.

It's held up so far, I ran awhile with 39's and just broke the stock shafts. Since I've got chromo axle shafts it held up. If it don't hold up to the v8 I have a 04 Dana 60 that I'll swap in.

Good to hear. I have the exact same axles waiting to go under my ranger. I was considering running some 38.5 tsl sx's. Those mtr's are military take off's right?

I really like them, they handle good on the road, did good off road. When these wear out I plan on getting another set.

Money, the motor was carbed when I got it, plus wiring is simple, 1 wire for dizzy, 1 wire for alternator, 2 wires for starter, plus fuel line. May go to a aftermarket efi later but for now this is going to have to do. I just want the truck running, not having it running for a year sucks

Welcome back!

Your gauge setup looks a lot like mine. It's the only other one I've seen. Very clean.

Engine looks nice too. What all did you do with it build wise?

The engine has a edelbrock performer-plus cam, new bearings and rings, did a little port and polishing on the heads, edelbrock performer intake, and topped off with a edelbrock 650 Thunder series off-road carb and went with hei distributor. Got the motor from a buddy, the motor didn't even have 60,000 miles on it. Tore it all down and cleaned/checked it out. So hoping it should last me a while.
