Good luck though. Are you going to keep a reasonable ride height or raise it sky high to fit the tires ?
you think it will be to much even with just street driving? I do have a rear rockwell laying around..if that is the case..

I dont know how much tire clearance im going to have yet..I want to get the truck on the lift and put the tires under it to just see where its at..

Nevermind didn't know it was street only.

Continue with your regular scheduled programming.

I would make it wide as **** though, because it will have to be big to clear those tires without a dovetail/nose etc.

everything for the front is sold and will be shipped this week..

the rear hasnt had any bites but im fine with that because I need a way to move it around the shop..so ill get the front build and on links pull the rear and push to sell it hard..then build the rear

Ive got dual 60s..46s..20s..coilovers...4 link front and rear..subframe..

only thing that Im in the air about is steering...

Good progress! Steven must really like you, since it's at his shop! I need to make my way up there soon. I need to quit looking at these pics, because it makes me want a Ranger all over again. lol
