    3.4l v8

    I believe the SHO V6 can bolt up to an M5OD.

    3.4l v8

    EDIT: This is the SHO V6, not V8. Also this has an adapter. However, the SHO V8 does share bellhousing pattern with Duratec V6s. I'm relatively certain that the Ranger 3.0 M5OD bolts up.

    Ranger RB20DET

    This isn't really a "street truck" build, but it isn't "off-road" either. I guess it just is what it is. Through high school and college, I drove a 1988 ranger 2wd. It was my project and daily driver. I went through 5 short-blocks, 3 clutches, 4 transmissions, and a lot of oil. Funny...

    New engine for my Ranger

    I had some trouble with my last engine and toasted the pistons. So I decided to do a full rebuild on the engine. Got the block back from my machinist and painted it to match the truck. The head is a worked over NA head with big valves. I reshaped the chambers to accommodate big...

    Turbo Ranger Hill Climb Video

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvvWuIb6FmA Hill Climb Video I made this movie a little over a year ago to test out the capabilities of a GoPro Hero HD. The truck is my 88 Ranger 2.3 Turbo. It's got a pretty hot motor with a Holset HE351 turbo on it, backed by a T5 tranny and a racing clutch...

    What does it take to get 10-12 wheel travel all around?

    So I'm thinking this summer I might rework the suspension on my truck. I want to get about 10" travel, front and rear. It's a 1988 shortbed single cab. Currently the setup is stock except for skyjacker leveling coils, cut down polyurethane spacers, aftermarket camber bushings and bilstein HD...
