Yeah I am lol. I live in Newfoundland though, probably the worst place in the world for salt and rust. They stop salting towards end of April/early may so I won't have it back on the road until then

Looks great. that thing is going to dominate on the trails. Is it locked in the front and back? And are you done with it or do you pan on doing more?

What did you use and where did you get your steering set up? I have a 97 ranger I bought a set of waggy axles locked front and rear with 5:13 gears and it has reid racing high steer knuckles. I think the year is 84-91. But I don't have any steering for them. If you could let me know what to use and where to get it that would be awesome.

Looks like he hasn't been on here in a while so I will try to help you out. If you're just using your stock ranger box then all you would need is a tie rod and drag link. Ruff stuff makes some good steering parts. And I also believe that they sell steering kits that allow you to set up tie rods and drag links. Hope this helps.
