Icon3 2wd Ranger/Explorer mix

Anybody on here have an Explorer rear suspension setup under their Ranger?

I've been thinkin bout the idea & wonderin if anybody has already done it?

As most know, the Explorer leafs mount UNDER the frame, not outside of it... hence my thinkin is, A WHOLE LOTTA tire clearance.................

I just bought a 95 Ranger that's hit lightly in the nose, no box & bent rearend housin, as that's what the guy bought it for. I'm gonna fix it & V8 it, but would like to stuff some Pro Street 30x14.5's on some 15X14 rims....

Will post some pics later when weather is better...........rainin here.

explorers have the leafs mounted under the frame rails, but thats also because the frame is wider back there compared to a ranger
