Your truck is badass. and i can only imagine what mine would look like too but...mine with 33's and 5.0l is sweet for now. plus places for wheeling around here are few and far between now. Might just get a trailslut for the cabin. got lots of trails up there. 4hours is to far to drive the ranger all jacked up for just a weekend stay.
I drove mine 9 hours one way to school when i first SAS'd it. It was great at the time but I'm way to used to haveing a DD now and probably couldnt DD the ranger anymore. It would drive me nuts!

Kinda reviving this....

I picked up a 1990s F250 master cylinder today, gonna see if i cant put it on tomorrow. Hoping to get the softness out of the pedal.

Bought a winch too, but I really want to 3 link it and run coil overs in the front, we will see how the rest of the summer goes.

the F250 master cylinder fit perfectly. its 1.25" Bore, they work awesome now too, definitely worth it. even the cruise control shut off plugged right in. only thing that didnt was this funky thing under the resevoir tank but it works fine.

i think it was a 1996 F250 Ext Cab which I got mine from. You need to reflare the hard lines to get that size nuts on the lines. that is it.

Yeah if you are going with BIG calipers and brakes you will want this upgrade for sure.

Cool idea Beard... I'm going to have to check out that as I know my brake system needed some help. With 35's and steelies... it's definitely going to be rough.

You just have all the cool ideas don't you?

Im thinking about trying this with my D44 and 8.8 discs. My brakes stop ok but the pedal is very mushy.

Hopefully its not too stiff.

How was your pedal feel with the half ton stuff?

Mine was mushy with the previous brakes, and with the 3/4 ton calipers i have now. it just never got firm.

I hooked up this F250 Master cylinder from a 96 (I am sure there is a year range) F250 with Cruise control and it just firmed the pedal up, it stops soo much better, and I didnt think it was that bad before. lol

The master cylinder has a 1-1/4 stamped into the side of it. I will get pictures of it tonight.

Not really my idea, I found some build over on Explorer Forums and all he said was F250 master cylinder, I tried to register to ask him more about it but I couldnt get the registration to work. So I just headed to the junkyard to find out what might work.

'97 V8 used the '90's F-250 MC which works great....I ended up using a '78 Merc (4WDiscs) 1.25" bore (No Cruise) works great with the Dual pistons up front and the K20 rear discs

Ahh ok, i was gonna use it because another guy used it, but i started thinking about it. I don't have cruise (base model) so i reaserched pirate and found out the '78 merc has the same bore and others there used it.

Price comparison '96 ford $70........'78 Merc $16

lol, call me cheap But if i did have cruise i would have went to the '96 MC

Well i'm glad my threads are helping others build their trucks

After seeing your build thread, i'm wanting to ditch my black steel wheels and go with some 17" aluminums just for a little but of styling
