Vacation -- It was Brentons bachelor party. He is taking the plunge next weekend.

ahh no many updates Ive been working 6 days a week 10-12 hour shifts for the past three months..pretty much since Ive been back since the dunes..

I sent zach the steering shaft parts but I am lacking the E250 shaft and cant find out for the life of me..

I orderd the PS steering hose..The truck is coming back to my house in the next week or so -- so I can work on it in the evening since the weather is starting to get nice in the evening.

Haha it is -- since is I'm in here might as well update. Nothing has been done. Haven't touched it. It's just been sitting in the driveway. I have been on the road traveling with work for the past eight weeks or so.

That's all I gotta say about that.

nice lift ^^^

Little update:

I bought some used steering parts from Beard, with him going to full hydro, I purchased a steering shaft, steering box and pitman arm from him. I got that installed Wednesday. Hooked up all the power steering hoses. I have the drag link and joints in hand. I just need to take the measurements and get it cut along with welded and steering is complete.

Next step is mount the radiator and efan which I have at the house. Run the power cables to the rear to batteries. Then I can turn her over and see what she sounds like after 2 years of sitting (kinda nervous)

I need to check to with beard to see what master cylinder I need ( i think its a 90s 250 with CC) which would be the only thing I need for brakes.

Its all the little things that are left minus rest of the tube work. I am off the week between Christmas and New years. I am hoping to get a lot done that week but we shall see :)

I will get some pictures when I get home from VA.

That was a while back. I know shortly after Beard said he would finish it and then I think Evan said he was going to finish it.

I think he changed his mind. I believe Beard is going to help him as well

EDIT: Adam is too fast

I would seriously consider buying this later this year after I have a full time job, I want to make my Ranger an offroad rig. This would save a lot of work

But I'd rather see you finish it
