Lower links are started tubing is just for mock up! havent cut the dom yet once its all mocked up and cycled then i will.

So went and looked at the truck for about 4 hrs tonight and i thinkkkkk i have a plan.
Problem one is upper link mount to engine crossmember/side of frame clerance-im thinking i can just barley sneak the upper link in where i only have to do minimul trimming if any.
Problem two-trac bar and mounting it. Looks like the only place to fit it is in front of the draglink not to big of a deal but just gonna take some time making a mount beefy enough to handle the abuse.
Got a question also, where can i find some pitman arms for a ranger gearbox i need one close to flat or with about a 1'' to .5'' drop if i had this i could squeeze the trac bar between the draglink and axle if not i have clerance issues.
No pics for tonight hoping to get the upper link mocked in this weekend though.
Thanks

make sure you turn the tires and they dont hit those links. that would be my only concern on the lowers.

also i have no idea how you will beef up a panhard mount to go infront of the axle... that should be interesting.

Heck yea cant wait to get em mounted up.
Anyone have tips as far as mounting them they will be mounted on the back side of the truss and tipped in and back so as not to go past 90* when flexed/bumped thats what ive always read and been told.
Also got my tunnel all done today its 100% bolt on so tranny swaps will be real easy im happy its finally done!
