Believe it or not the truck hooks up real good....But its hard not to power break it!!! Its only been on the road for about 3 weeks and I have put alittle over 500 miles on it so far. I actually stripped off the 5% and I laid 30% all the way around including the full windshield..its alot better! This has been a 1 1/2 project for me. I bought the truck as a shell and did everything to it...here is a link to my build page. http://www.ranger-forums.com/f34/199...-0-swap-93083/

I love everything about this truck.

You achieve an amazing wheel-tire-height ratio

Thanks for all the comments guys..I still have alittle work to do to finish it all up. The ride height came out just as I had envisioned in my head...But I really got lucky. I used the complete Expo rear including the leaf springs which was factory flipped then I got a set of 3" DJM dream beams. This is a pic from last week..I ended up putting 1/2" coil jackers on it this week so the front would not scrub when you hit a bump at high speeds.

The exhaust is just the Factory manifolds (Torq Monsters are way too high) and two Flow master mufflers with turn downs. Here is a far off Video I got of it a few days ago.
