don't know how to do that either.

The only thing i have experience in when it comes to custom engine installs is the LS motors.

i own 3 fords and 1 chevy.... I'm not biast to any one manufacturer. I think they all have some good and some bad. The LS engines are a definite good. The Ford D60 kingpin is a definite win. Ford 205 t-case, 67-69 fastback mustangs=win. There are more out there. Ranger=win. Chrysler 300=win. 03+ Ram=Win.

See, I like many different cars and components of them. Some are better than others.
LS1>4.6
Coyote 5.0>LS3

yea, the 4L60E was made to be a car trans. Plain and simple. In 2wd street trucks, they are great. the 4wd version is the suck. I will most definitely run the 80E.

Although i would love to have the diesel, i just know it won't ever happen.

I just saw you on miramar blvd leaving cort furniture headed east. (12:15ish)

And just so you know next time I see you and the truck I will hijack it and steal it. Truck looks sick! The front is super wide and I couldn't tell that in the pics. Lol

Anyway nice work! Lol

Oh I didn't know the harbor freight was there. I was rock climbing at Vertical Hold and was on my way home. I would have flagged you down but I was with the woman in her car. lol

When do you leave? The first of the month?

I put the chrome grille back on the Ranger and thought i would snap some pics. I don't really drive the gal now as she gets pretty shitty mileage, but she is here at the house and i take her out every now and then.

i guess you can run 20s since its a street queen haha.

20s and 35s looks good though, i have a friend with a titan on 20s and 35s. I hated the wheels but once they had 35s on them instead of the street tires i really like the look of it.

I think it's going to look situ the wheels and tires on it. I will lower the truck some more so it won't have the giant gap, but there will still be a bit of a gap until the new meats come in

What are the rims? I love 20's and 35's. My buddy has them on his Superduty with a mild lift and it looks badass.
