got my truss made on the front axle..well half of it rear isnt on yet. Also my DOM and joints came in for the tie rod bar. The joints are on the wrong side of the knuckle because down there it doesnt rub on lock..I have to do some handy work to the diff cover to clear it but dont wanna start machining on it until I get gears to make sure that they will clear

Do you really feel that it is necessary to truss the axle? I mean, that is 3 1/2" OD 1/2" Wall DOM Tube, It will never bend under the weight of a Ranger...

If he was actually going to wheel it hard i would absolutley truss it but i dont think he plans to wheel it hard so he would probably be fine.

Dude, seriously? That axle is from a SUPERDUTY. It probably had a powerstroke sitting on top of it at some point in its life. Its not gonna bend under a ranger, ever.
