Put 08-11 mirrors on. Had to cut the 2 posts shorter on the bottom that the studs come off of so the mirros sat on the door right.

the front lower hole of the hanger gets moved to the rear lower hole in the frame and i grinder down to clean metal and welded it in place. There is a small gap from the body mount so you would have to use a washer in between if you were bolting it.

A little rough right now but not to bad. I had to make the stock steering work by cutting and sleeving with the ttb tie rod to the pitman arm because ruff stuff sent me the wrong misalignments for the 7/8 steering. The stock steering is a little worn out so i get vibrations here and there around 30 mph but if i go a little faster they kinda smooth out. you feel the lugs at slower speeds but other then that the don't seem to bad on the road.

Haven't updated in a while but I started tearing down the parts truck. I pulled the body lift out of the ranger and cut the fenders where the fender flares were. I swapped out my old grey seat for the newer black bucket style ones. I also put in 7 inch bronco superfex coils in the front right now and started mounting my winch plate.

Haven't updated in a while but i got the rear shocks on and threw random paint i had laying around on for now to stop rusting. I also started the 2011 front clip swap. Im trying to see if i can do the swap without changing the rad support and so far it is looking like it will work. Still have to trim the 02 parts hood to fit the grill.

Nice work dude. Looks real raw right now but it'll come out good. Out of curiosity, how high is the bottom of the door from the ground?

I was able to cut the 02 hood to fit the 2011 grill and it fits pretty nicely. I was also able to drill out my knuckles for the ruff stuff 7/8 steering. went a lot faster then I thought it would take.

Haven't posted in a while but I have a couple changes coming to the ranger. I recently picked up a ruff stuff rear 4 link kit and 4 16 inch travel 2.5 FOA coilovers. I also got a 9" rear with 5.13s and a spool off of a friend for cheap but i might sell it to buy a selectable rear locker for the 8.8 since it already has the disk conversion on it. I finished up the clip swap and latch and painted the truck a new color which i think makes it look a lot better. because of the 4 link I am not going to be using the stock gas tank anymore so i am thinking of making a 20 gallon fuel cell or using a 15.5 gallon keg i have laying around. I am going to wire a airtex E8248 to the stock pump power wires wight the factory regulator which I think should work.
