    Dasfinc V-8, 5 speed, Explorer Sport Build thread

    Can't believe this only took me 9 years to get back around to..... And a completely different (and yet the same) truck?

    After A 4 year Hiatus.... I'm about to be back, and have questions

    It's been a long while since I was in the Ranger scene with my old truck: But I'm picking up a low mile 2wd 99 extended cab with the step side bed on the cheap with a knocking 3.0 under the hood for an excellent price, and am going to line up a 99 donor explorer. So I'm extremely...

    Bitter Sweet, Going to start house hunting

    For starters, My Supercharger kit is forsale!!! GO BUY IT! On that note, I have a bit of savings put aside, and was wondering who all has recently started house hunting and what resources you have used? With the purchase of my mustang, I have to slow down my RBV Plans for a year at the least...

    5 speed, V-8 Explorer Sport build

    Yay new build thread for kicks and giggles in general because it's not a ranger build. With my 1998 ford ranger having finally been scrapped, I now need a new home for my Supercharged 5.0, so here is the start of my build thread for my new platform! Ordering my first pile of new parts: For...

    Back in the Saddle Again

    About damn time, not that anyone here cares. Ranger is scrapped per a few other threads of mine, and it's motor is finding it's way into my explorer. In the mean time I wanted to buy something that I already had years ago and could never really get over having lost. I lost this car in 2008 due...

    M5OD-R2 302 Questions

    Anyone running this transmission behind their 5.0's? Any issues/problems/tricks to it? From my reading it looks like a 96-98 M5OD-R2 would be PERFECT behind my 5.0 swap that's being moved into my explorer sport (the 4.2 V-6 ones share bellhousings to my 5.0, and are the same transmissions that...

    Moving my Supercharged V-8 setup in spring

    To my other truck: 1997, 5 speed, 2wd. Thoughts? *For those curious, My 1998 Std cab Stepside ranger is getting scrapped due to visually looking like shit, me being sick of an Automatic in my "toy", and emissions/reg renewal both being due next month...*

    Where to buy Cheap/New Body Components

    LMC is tremendously expensive, and Certifit seems to only be open in my area when I'm working... Any other good vendors for things like Tailgates/Bumpers? (I'm in Northern IL incase anyone knows anything specific to that area)

    Need a picture of a 4R70W transmission

    Outside of a Vehicle with its wiring harness still attached... Figured out my wiring issue, but won't be able to see what in the hell I'm working on with it in the truck and can't envision it... I don't have any good quality pictures of my setup out of the truck sadly...

    Killed my ranger last night (Modified V-8/Supercharged) Any input?

    I suspect/hope/Pray its a coil after triple checking all my relays/fuses/wiring/etc. Ignition coil failures are not super uncommon on fords I know, and I kinda suspect that may be what I experienced the other day... My truck has a No-Start condition at the moment after Friday night (from my...

    Aftermarket Brake/Suspension ranger vendors 98+

    Any good vendors out there? I have a DJM 2/3 drop kit, and fresh leaf springs, but am going to step 'down' to a 3/4 drop (Upper and lower control arms, and OEM rear shackle) Curious about a beefier sway bars, and still trying to find who sells Cobra kits for 98+ Coil sprung trucks.

    What do you all think of my bumper?

    I posted in my other thread and made it my sig pic, but was curious if anyone had any input? My truck has a 98-00 4X4 grill on it with teeth, and my lower bumper is a 98-01 Mounty bumper. I was planning on doing the 01-03 EDGE headlights/turnsignals/grill conversion, but kinda like the end...
