nope haha my buddy had plans to SAS his ranger after be broke his cv's. He had an RCD suspension lift. He started the teardown (had 84k on it) and now hes decided to just scrap the ranger cab, frame, everything and build a buggy instead since he has a lot of tube. It will have around 500hp, supercharged 350.

It looks nice. Are you doing OEM skid plates? I found a transfer case one, but need to find one for the gas tank.

Know what's funny? Rob and I did this to mine earlier. We bolted it though. Rob did the cutting of the hitch and welded the brackets that mount under the frame. I cut a old class 2 hitch I bought to make a license plate mount to get me home w/o police issues. We're gonna touch it up eventually and make the plate sit more flush to the bumper. I'll get pics up later.


Disclaimer: BIG THANKS TO ROB TO DOING THIS ON HIS MEMORIAL WEEKEND.

the gas tank one i've been told you have to drop the tank because the plate has something to do with the straps. I'd probably just get something welded on but thats in the future tho.
