1992 Ranger DD/wheeler/hunting and exploration rig. The 20 year old suspension is sagged out, the shocks are on their last leg and the 31" BFG ATs rub up front on bigger bumps. Time for a build up and some major improvements.

I am having trouble removing the passenger side c-clip from an Explorer 8.8 axle.
It is a '93 Explorer Drum brake 8.8. It has been regeared with a new carrier (Detroit Truetrac).
The truetrac is essentially a solid body design with the helical gear limited slip internals hidden. This makes a...

I am trying to sell another TRS member a Dana 35 axle assembly (everything that bolts to the beams, minus the radius arms and drop brackets). I would think I could make it fairly compact.
I would be shipping it from Denver CO to Texas.
I would like to know what has worked well for other...

What size of rubber fuel lines do I need? (the two that run along the frame rail and go directly to the tank)
5/16" or 3/8" i.d.??????????:icon_confused:
I just searched through 10-15 threads on this subject and couldn't find the info I needed.
background:I have an older 84 BII tank (from a carbed 2.8) that I would like to run in my 91 ranger. The plan is to throw the 84 BII tank in the bed just behind the cab and possibly cut a hole in the bed...
I noticed my 2.9 in my 91 ranger started loosing coolant. It progressively got worse over the course of a few days while I continued to drive it short distances and keep the coolant level topped up..... now after driving the vehicle any distance when I park and shut the vehicle off it spews out...
Im doing the saginaw ps pump swap (cardone, '79 Tbird HD pump)
I got the old flywheel off the o.e. pump and onto the new saginaw and got it bolted into place with no grinding of any kind needed on the bracket, (its a 91 2.9 ranger). I decided to replace both the pressure line and the return...
Ran chinamann's gulch this last weekend with a local club. Just thought Id share some pictures. It rained the entire weekend which made the trail and camping a little more interesting.
Some carnage, broken sector shaft!
both were repaired on the trail and drove out...
a little late notice but there is a run on saturday at Chinamans Gulch near buena vista, CO if anyone here is interested in wheeling/camping. Should be a nice big run with a good turn out. If you are interested PM me for details.:icon_cheers:
Is there any way to identify a dana 60 rear axle by the numbers on the diff itself? It says the bill of materials is located on the axle tube but i couldnt find them. Its supposedly a ff 30 spline the guy thinks it may be from an old power wagon.
I am pulling apart a borg warner manual 1350 transfer case to use for the crawl box in my doubler. I got the cases split and the front plate and planetary gears removed.
The cases will pull apart to about an inch but I cant get enough slack in the chain to slip it up over the gears to...
I am sick of my drive shaft rubbing the skid, I am installing a doubler and shortening the rear end:icon_welder:. Long story short the stock gas tank has to go.
What is the easiest/cheapest way to get a tank up into the bed without taking up a ton of space? "91 ranger extendo-cab"

Id like to spend less than $2000.
Plan on trailering either my BII or Ranger
Which engine would be best for towing and what else should I look for?
Finally building a real wheeler, but im a little confused with all this wms srw drw hub crap, and countless tech threads ive read through. I want full width but dont want to be a mile wide in the end. Stable but can still hit some of the tight trails.
Im still gathering parts so I would like to...
