1: not enough ranger left 2: why don't you just build a tube buggy with a ranger grill 3: why not spend money on 1 tons or a real motor1.

I agree. Front leafs seem pretty easy from a fab standpoint. It has me thinking hard.

Dont mind this guy. Its a buddy of mine f-ing around. Plus, he drives a samurai

Anyways, heres some progress pics from last weekend.

Rear-













Front-










And from the side-






The rear needs to come down about 1.5in and the front is going up about an inch. I think i am going to pull the front axle back a hair too to make it more proportional. Thats where the axle would sit if it were on 40's.

Looks really good Chris. I like that bed rail on the outside.

Your truck is really becoming a piece of work. Cant wait to see some trail pics.

I'm guessing the gas tank is going to be bed mounted? If not, where you going to put that? Still going to use the stocker or do you have a cell to put in?

Getting there...

Back going together-





Tailgate-











Front-





Rear













Still got some stuff to do in order to get it on the trail. We still have to plumb the brakes and fuel system, hook back up all the electrical, put the interior back together ect but most of the big stuff is done.

Im still working on the ride heights. Without a nitrogen bottle handy, getting it set up is a pain in the @ss. I still think it needs to go up about 1-1.5 in the front and down about an inch in the rear.

I'm getting excited to get it back on the trail!

Here is the stuff that i ordered for it...

http://store.summitracing.com/partde...0&autoview=sku

http://store.summitracing.com/partde...0&autoview=sku

http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

Plus a ton of hose and fittings. I dont have any of it plumbed or wired yet so i cant tell you how it works. Its a return-less system so it gets a bit more complicated than a normal fuel systerm, plus my truck is flex fuel so its got a bunch more sensors and crap on it that is all going in the trash.

I just hope it runs when i get done with it...

Im alittle confused? Im not sure about the 3.0 but arent rangers a return style fuel system, and dont the trucks need around 65 psi to run? The pump you posted only does 55psi and the regulator is 3-60.

Edit: Just looked it up it lists the 3.0 Vulcan and 4.0 OHV as 30-40psi, the SOHC is 60-70psi. So that will work. What are you doing about fuel filters? Most people I have talked to said to run a filter before the inline pump then a finer filter after it.

Double edit: So rangers are returnless fuel system trucks, and FFV use less pressure from what I read.

Ya know Chrs.. Im curious.. just a random question, looking at some of your wheeling pics and such, how many sets of wheels have you been through on there? Do you re-lug/cut any of your crawler wheels for better traction after they have been used and abused a little?
