The truck was sitting on its own wait again the next day with the only things remaining being fabbing a new trans cross member, steering linkages, and exhaust rerouting.

It was as close to bolt in as you will ever get!

Lol, Kinda, but those last 2 evenings were only 3-4 hours, and that was mostly tearing it back down for finish welding and paint, then it got put back together for the final time.

I think I did a damn good job! lol. Dont rain on my parade!

truck is gonna look naasty. could drop the front end a little lower but sickesst ranger ever (zach u dont count anymore). Ya Know with the increaseing amount of SAS's you all should get together and create amost a "kit" and create templates and supply measurements. Charge more for "research and devlopment" id pay to not have to do the measurements and all that myself.

Guys....saw it in person tonight on it's shoes....and holy ****!!!! This thing is built RIGHT!!! VERY nice welds, VERY beefy joints and links. It's done right. Not a hack job like I've seen on TRS...this truck is legit. Yea...I mean I would've done a Ford HP axle and used high steer...but those can be done later. The truck is legit and it's built right. The shock hoop crossmember is gonna be pretty cool too. Cory...man...the truck is kickass and it's stout, those buddy's of yours know their ****. Good work.

BTW....for you floor to fender flare people....54.5" or so. Rockers are like 38" up *i think*

I took tons of pics tonight of it. I suppose I'll get the ones that turned out hosted.

Sweet mother of Jesus...

Mad props cory.... For sure!

You may wanna set the drivers side a few clicks higher than the passenger side, compensate for the "ranger lean"... Just my thoughts!

zip ties are not going to hold those resis'. lol

Wheres the drag link?

That thing is way tall! You might want to look into a sway bar or something, because wow its tall.

idk what you made your steering shaft out of, lets see some pics. if its got any part of the original ranger shaft you going to have some problems. I am just trying to help you out, so dont take my comments the wrong way. The truck looks awesome.
