After seeing what you did to Evans (I think that is his name) Ranger it kind of gives me an idea of what my red Ranger will look like, except he has radius arms, coils, and I think he is full width. November sometime is the completion date!

yeah yours will be close to Evans for sure. I wanted him to have high steer but he isnt that tall for it.

What brand knuckle is that?

I think what waggy axles are like 62" WMS to WMS?

That knuckle is from ORU ORU Crossover Steering Knuckle Dana 44 & GM 10 Bolt Nut Down - Off Road Unlimited

The waggy is either 62" or 64" if I remember correctly.

The rear is all lifted with the adapters and tires mounted up. The front has been all taken off. I went to visit this morning and he was just starting on tearing out the IFS. This evening he sent me an e-mail saying that it's all off and next week begins cleaning up the frame and doing the steering. All I can say is that this truck is huge! I didn't expect it to be so tall. The front is on jack stands and sitting about 1" lower than the rear. I'll post pics as soon as my buddy sends them to me. It looks kind of funny right now, but once the front axle and tires get under it it'll look more normal.

I brough my camera, but I forgot the freaking memory card and this new camera doesn't have any internal memory like my old one! It just so happens that my buddy called while I was there and he was in the area and stopped by. He also just happened to have his camera with him. We snapped a few pictures and I should have them sometime this weekend.

I live in North West Phoenix. Porbably about 25 minutes from the airport. Too bad my truck isn't done. Then I'd have wheels to visit you.

The pictures he took suck. Only one actually came out. Unfortunately my ulgy mug is in it. It only shows the back half the front is up on jack stands. This will be ride heigth minues an inch or so once the springs settle. Next week I won't fail so bad with the pictures.

Yeah I could have but I hate crappy pictures. I'll have plenty of room for flex and I probably could have gone with 37s but these 35s will do just fine.

LOL, no that is some of his scrap. However, that is a bumper in the front of that cart and it is badass. Sometime in the spring, I'll have be back at his shop and have a new front bumper.

There is a ton of room in those fenders for larger tires. The problem is the front and rear of the wells where the body goes into the fenders. Here is another crappy picture that helps to show how much room there is in those fenders. BTW I'm 5' 6"

I suck at pictures. I forgot my memory card, my cell doesn't have text (next month I'm upgrading to the standard, lol) so my buddy was in the area and took these. I already yelled at him for not taking more. I should be down there Friday and I won't forget my camera or memory card and I'll have charged batteries, lol! By Friday the front frame should be bare. This weeks goal was to get the front ready for welding. Then the next two weeks if things go well (crossing fingers) I should have my steering box in, the main front suspension done along with the axle under the truck and everythign sitting under its own weight. The week after that is to double check everything, put in shocks, plumbing for the steering, extended brake lines, extended breather tubes, etc. Then back to another shop to get the rear regeared and a custom drive shaft.

your killing us.

dont worry about the gap in the fenders, it will probably need that to flex without tearing up the bedsides.
