Picked up an expo 8.8 cause I don't feel like rebuilding my 9". Has 373s and a limited slip. Not to bad for 150 bucks

Smallish update.

Took the ranger to a buddys house because my apartments won't let me weld anymore:





Plenty of fender gap



old d28



Torn out



Welded up my ballistic fab coil buckets



Wheels tires and tie Rod on





How she sits as of last night





Should be done by today with all the axle swaps and such

the motor is in hold for now. I'm going to get all of the body and suspension stuff done first and hammer on the motor last.
