I would go that far as to say I have money. The most expensive thing I have bought was the wheels and tires... after mounting and balancing it was around $850 or so... that was even more then the price of the truck, I paid $720 for the truck.

Put my new wheels are tires on!!! It looks much better with tires that have some side lugs to them.

302 swap... here I come... I bought an 87 F150 with a 4 speed and a 5.0...

Ranger no longer has a heart... but the transplant is on its way... here is the progress so far...


I got the trans and t-case out of the F150. The Transmission crossmember was basically rusted on and I couldn't remove any of the bolts so I had one heck of a time pulling the trans. Had to take the bellhousing and tailshaft housing both of to get it out. No pictures of the work being done (still don't know how people just decide to take pictures well in the middle of doing something... I get in work mode and don't stop till I'm done)

Here is the after math...

Yes the T-case is on the floor of the drivers side of the 150... I had my old manual 1354 sitting next to the ranger and with me not being there the past month it got stolen. I hate the city of Flint. Such a **** hole. So I put it in there for security... and I'm not too worried about the trans since it wieghs a good 300lbs being stolen. Nobody can just walk off with that.

Here is the engine that will soon be in the ranger hopefully

And my buddy is storing something in the bed of the 150 for his ranger... dana 44 out of a late 70's bronco. Maybe he will forget about it and it might just end up under my truck.
