just ordered some rims, should be here in a week and then its time for tear down

but I will still have to get a front drive shaft and regear the rear end befor any wheeling can take place

How soon do you need a shaft? Cuz I threw one together myself, with a TTB (93-97 Ranger) front shaft, cut and lengthened it I think 6" over what it was and re welded it. I have no vibration until 50mph in 4-hi. Shocking! I had that shaft laying around and decided to put it to use. It's not a long travel, but it got me around this winter with no issues.

yeah, those front re-lengthen shafts work ok. most lifted trucks here use them. i have a nissan pathfinder one, dont remember how much we lengthened it. cost me around 60$ and no vibration and its pretty beefy
