For the future:

Well...this weekend i heard some bearings in the transmision...so i went ahead and pulled it out again. the shifter bushing crumbled into the transmission along with a few washers and clogged up some oiling passages and needle valves. New tranny is the next step i guess

Hah, no thats my cousings 89 lowered f-150. He's kind of a dumbass so he cut the springs and put deep dish rims and stretched tires on it...He just didn't do it right.

UPDATE ON MY RANGER:
**** lowering.
3 inch body lift
2 inch coil spacers
get 2000 explorer alumin rims
mount 31X10.50X 15's on them.

I have changed my mind about this and need to get this thread moved. Its getting lifted....i have explorer rims mounted with 235/75/15r and then the transmission goes out. Lots of maintenance before i go on with the lifting and more pictures to come today or tomorrow!
