My vote is the high pinion axles out of the early fords. The ones with the cast wedgies are easy as cake to narrow as well, did mine that way
Nearly bolt on with all the products James duff offeres these days
So I have a friend who had some rings slide into the air vents closet to the windshield (defrost vents) of her automatic BII.
I know all about 96 and up dashboards since I did a cab swap and swapped a 96 out for a 2000 dash. But know literally nothing about earlier model RBV dashes.
You can buy shafts and u-joints through Jeff's too. Just not chromoly ones if I remember correctly. I just has the passenger shaft sent to Dutchman motorsports and they shortened it and resplined it for an early bronco. Then threw new u-joints in both stock shafts for now.
The Slinger goes on...
Read through my build thread ( commuter Mazda) and I see that I did essentially that. I cut the cast of, then cut the tube out of the cast portion, then cut the tube at the axle side off (totaling 6") removed and then pressed the wedgie back on with 1" all thread and a impact gun (while...

Ever wanted a newer Ranger cab, with the swing out rear doors on a twin I-beam equipped frame? After all it is much easier to swap in a solid axle on the earlier frames since they were already set up for coils than the torsion bar Rangers. Best of both worlds...
2" body lift will solve the rubbing. None of your other complaints but at least it wont rub.
No fab work.
It will be hard to put a solid axle under there and keep close to stock height or slightly higher. Just not a whole lot of room
So my speedo needle flutters pretty bad and varies about 10mph after I reach or surpass about 30mph.
I have a 1996 4x4 drivetrain. I just got done putting a 2000 cab onto it. I retained all electrical everything from the 1996.
I have checked all grounds to be on bare metal and ground straps...
Someone tell me if this will work, my intuition says it should but maybe I'm wrong.
My 96 4.0L has the cone style filter with a cylindrical shaped MAF housing. This uses a small white pigtail connector with 4 wires/pins.
My 2000 4.0L has the square box style air filter and external MAF with a...
I wouldn't do it like he did.
The lower coil mount is fixed to the top of the radius arm which needs to flex.
He made a plate that either hinders that flex or constantly is fighting the weldment on the axle. Eventually that plate will break off since the welds are getting stressed constantly...
Turning the knuckles in my case was not feasible, since my wedgies are the cast kind.
My axle is a 79 F150 axle that I have narrowed.
I am hoping to end up with around 3* of castor when I am done. I will be running 5.5 or 6" coils so I think this is realistic with 7* bushings. 3* is more than...
In essence yes. I bought one from a guy who sent them his stocker then sold it to me. So no it is basically an EB 5-760x U-joint passeger shaft.
Your wheels look tall and narrow, just like I like em, what size is your tire/wheel combo?
