you can junk the stock TIB's, the spring buckets are the same 4x2-4x4 for those years.

so you almost there already, just have to fab some lower coil seats on the axle.

Get full size Bronco (78-79) coil buckets and radius arm mounts. Then buy some 3.5, 5.5, or 6.5" early Bronco lift coils. It's practically bolt up on that year of Ranger.

If you truck is going to be a trail only rig I would go with 5.13's.

so you guys think it would be easier to do the coils? with the FS radius arms will it be a problem on a shortend d44? i hear everyone running yota steering boxes, is that what ill need?

You will have no problems running the radius arms on a narrowed axle.

You can retain the stock steering box. No need to switch to a Yota box with a TTB Ranger.
