See, Rangers don't comfortably fit 3 people. My truck only has two seats. Austin's was on the lift w/o differentials. So we all packed in the '06 Duramax. Ranger comparo should come pretty soon....sittin next to a double lifted silver one owned by Tre. lol.

OH....btw...that Dmax.....it's 6" RCD and 35's.

Is it me, or is the rear axle narrower? Looks like its an early bronco rear axle. It has the light duty housing. Also, you ever gonna put a front driveshaft in it? Please say yes, it drives me nuts when I see a huge *** truck that is so big that a driveshaft wontfit the front b/c of the wrong pinion angle. You know you can cut the inner C's off and rotate them back to turn the pinion up if you need to... a little late now though considering you already welded all the brackets on. Of course you could always cut the tubes on the inner side of the brackets and just rotate the chunk itself.

Im not sure if you need to do this or not, but just throwing ideas out there if you need something to make the front work.

I believe he was talking about running spacers because the 9" is a narrow 9". He'll be running a front shaft....his main goal was to get it running. When I was under it the other day, I could tell a new trans x-member would have to be made. The angle off the tcase to the axle would cause the shaft to end up hitting the crossmember.


I'm trying not to put words in Cory's mouth. Just goin' by what he said and what I've seen.

I comfortably fit 2 other girls in the cab of my ranger with just two bucket seats, lol. One has to sit on the center console, lol.

That is one huge truck man!! I want to see some flex pictures when it's all done as well.

EDIT: are there no brakes on the rear?...
