    Ignition lock cylinder linkage?

    Okay maybe this isn't a urgent problem because I am still able to drive my truck, but I went to go start it after work yesterday and the key turned the ignition on but then started turning without any resistance. I've traced the problem to the linkage between the lock cylinder and the ignition...

    Trans America Trail in a RBV?

    Just curious if anyone has run the Trans-America trail in a Ranger before. I've read on other sites that it is geared towards off-road bikes. And a few jeeps have done it. But I'm wondering if it can be done in a RBV. All input is welcome.

    4.0 oil pan questions

    I was hoping that someone could answer a question for me. I pulled the oil pan off the engine I was just about to drop into my 89 ranger. I say just about because I'm not sure if I want to use this motor anymore. I found a lot of metal in the bottom and I can't figure out where it came from. I'm...

    Stock A/C compressor used for air compressor?

    I'm a couple weeks away from dropping in my exploder 4.0 into my 89 ranger. The ranger doesn't have air conditioning but the engine has a compressor mounted on it and I want to construct an onboard air system. I have a couple questions: 1. Has anyone ever run a setup like this? I know there is...

    Distributor in a 4.0?

    I have been searching the tech library and haven't found the information I've been looking for. I pulled a 4.0 out of a 91' Explorer a couple years ago. And I'm about to swap my knocking 2.9 out of my 89' Ranger for the 4.0. I was looking at the block this afternoon and noticed that where the...

    The Horse with no name...

    Looks like I'll be getting a new ride in a couple weeks. Just need to figure out what kind of name I should give it. It's a 89' extra cab 4x4 with a 2.9L and a 5sp. I'm totally stoked about it.

    Junkyard pitman arm questions...

    I'm trying to find a dropped pitman arm to replace the straight arm on my steering gearbox so I can finally do the lift to the front of my truck. Does anyone know from which makes and models in the junkyards I would have to look at to find a dropped arm to fit? The tech library doesn't have...

    Two inch DOM tubing?

    Anybody know where I can get 1.5 and 2 inch .250 thick DOM in the South Jersey, northern Delaware, or Philadelphia areas? My local steel supplier, Fazzio Steel, doesn't have 2". But they do have 1.5", but only .120 thick.

    Just another dana 30 sas...

    A friend of mine junks cars for a living. He must be doing pretty good at it since he just bought himself a used rollback. But onto my story. He dropped off a free 98 Cherokee with a non-cad Dana 30 with 3.55 gears and rolling on 31's in my driveway! Told me that I could pull whatever I...

    Dana 28 questions

    I was wondering if somebody with a dana 28 can measure the length of the ttb arms from the mounting point to the spring center. I was told a few things about the dana 28 that I think is bullshit. But I want to be sure of the info first before I call someone a idiot. Thanks.

    Clunking issues

    My GF and I went over to her aunt's house tonight. And her aunt asked me what could possibly be causing a clunking noise in the front end of her 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee. So we wheel it around the driveway a couple times and I was almost willing to bet that the control arm bushings are going...

    Wiring diagrams needed

    As you all might know, I'm swapping the 4.0 from a 91 explorer into my 87 ranger. I looked in the tech library and couldn't find the wiring diagrams for a 91 explorer. I was wondering if someone could scan their Chilton's manual for that year and send them to me. I'd be most appreciated...

    Transfer case differences?

    I've got a few questions that I can't seem to find the answers to. I just started my first truck project which you can find a link to it HERE. First question is: What is the differences in the electonic shifting transfer case I have in the exploder and a manual shifting transfer case? Second...

    Hello to one and all.

    I've been lurking in the shadows for a couple weeks now. Trying to soak up as much information as possible before I posted. I've become the latest owner of a 87' Ranger (2wd/std cab/longbed). Only paid $400 for it. I love this truck but I've been wanting to play in the dirt with it. So I've...
