the list could go on.
well i would not have narrowed it in the 1st place

mine is already a 4x4 so it would be easier....

go ford 9 in the rear.....

put some low gearing so a 3.0 can pull 35's or 36's swampers

you do realize that if you don't narrow the axles (if you get them out of a full size truck) that your tires will stick out about 3-5" farther than they do now?

Wow, I would just buy a different truck...I mean I like Ford's and I like my Ranger but...

Buy an early 80's jeep and build the SNOT out of it for the price you paid for your Ranger W/O SAS!!!

Just my opinion!

brand bashing is for idiots, who cares what emblem it has? my truck has parts from every major manufacture but dodge. When i said people who drive jeeps were douches was because theres to many people with them with their BB lifts who think they are cool. not because of jeep specificly
