That didn't take long

I got the title to my new '86 last night and got it swapped over today and in less than an hour later I was modifying it. I upgraded to 15" wheels like the 14" wheels that were on it. I got them from a friend that used to have a 4wd Ranger. Had new tires put on the 15's. The are 205/75/15's, stock for that truck is 185/75/15. It had 205's on it, but they were all in worse shape than I originally thought. I'm bring it home tomorrow. Expect more pics. tomorrow.

Believe it or not there is 7 wheels and tires in there(1 full size spare for the red truck, 2 225's on deer hove wheels, and 4 new ones for the '86).

While I was laying under the truck today I realized how much nicer it is to work under a lifted truck than a lower truck.

Center caps will go back on after I paint/clean up the wheels. How about that red interior fellas? You know you like it!

I've changed my mind on flipping the shackles. I don't think I'm going to do it. I like the height it's at now and I don;t want the rear to be lower than the front.

flip your shackles and see how it looks. if you dont like it all you have to do it unbolt them and reflip em. street rangers look so much better leveled than raked

My odometer has rolled over, so I'm thinking mine has a little over 109k on it which is just less than my '01.
