My buddy threw on some 38's for summer so i told him id hold onto his 44's for him. Now im tossing up the idea of 60 swap and 44" boggers
And picked up a pair of paddles to try out at the coast some weekend, need to find 2 more or race cut some 285/75's
Doin my usual coast trip but this time the ranger is not pulling tow duty and is getting towed there. Gonna see how the 351 and boggers do in the new setup. If anyone is out and about, hit me up and say hi. Its always nice to put a face to names on here
Started to clean up under the hood. Re running the wires, hoses etc. Still alot more to do but its getting there. Took care of those pesky valve cover leaks as well and shot a lil ford blue on the covers
And heres her all cleaned up needing a buff job badly
Like the title says mud on the farm is having its last run of the season before the mud holes get filled for summer. 20 bucks a rig spectators are free. Located just west on Junction city. Hope to see some fellow rangers there as i will be there to see how the V8 and boggers do
If that wont revitalize your motivation, i dont know what will. Fired her up for the first time since the V8 swap and man oh man did it feel good. Smells good too since i was pouring my 110octane in through the carb to run her. Ill have it buttoned up here shortly then a vid. Also got my new HEI...
How far is the drill stopping at? Your most likely stopping at the axle tube, its a much denser alloy than the weld. If you can, have someome with a 220 reweld it for you. Keep the other housing in case you decide later you want full width
They get stuck, and rely on you to pull em out lol.
Went looking for snow today and to beta test my ranger since the 3/4 ton swap. It did awesome besides the fact i was running 36's with 3.54 gearing lol. No action shots but lets say it was some nasty stuff they where in.
Heres my lil ranger...
