info on that truck, hmmm.....

too much lift. scary steering. solid front axle but no front wheel drivetrain (transfercase or driveshaft). enough shocks for two trucks. front spring hangers could be knocked off by hand. axles are (1) to weak to handle the load, (2) to narrow support a truck that tall.

the list could go on.

why would you want a truck that high for sand? most dunes would put you on your lid

about the only one i can think of was jey. mainly because he was already 4wd. most people who do sas's are 2wd and its the easiest way to go 4wd.

something to also keep in mind......Ranger's have a driver side t-case for the front shaft, as well as the pumpkin. So the shaft is on the driver's side. Unless your doing a tcase swap, you'll need either a Ford or Jeep front axle. Chevy axles are passenger side diff. Which is why I'm going with Ford full size 44 front, and Chevy 14bolt rear. talk big. wow.
