Default Rangerrod 2.0

Heres my 1990 for ranger ive had since high school originally equipped with 2.9 v6 5speed 4 inch lift 32's. Started having the usual ttb problems and so i started on my sas. Well 8 years later this is where Iam.

plan
dana 44 eb 6lug outers chromo's locker
dana 60 rear 35 spline spool also 6lug narrowed to eb width
4.56 gears
cage radius arms and eb 5 inch coils in front
3.5 eb leaves out back
flatbed fuel cell underneath
cage inside with the cab gutted
sliders and bumper with winch able to be moved front and back
40 inch mtrs 17inch beadlocks
5.0 motor
c4 reverse pattern manual valve body
dodge 203 to dana 20


Now I know the 44 isnt going to hold up but i will eventually swap in full width 60s front and rear with 5.38's. But for now here it goes will probably be slow going every once in a while due to funds and work schedule.

Well I've gotten some more done. In one of the previous pics I had the heater mounted didnt like the location because I wouldnt be able to mount any guages. So I faced the heater down got some plumbing fittings and some sump pump hose. Then got two defroster vents from a 76 toytoa and tried to graft them in as best as I could. Pretty happy with the dash so far just no money for guages. Next is seat belt bar some gussets on the cage.
