    I think I am too tall....

    Got an 05...Everytime I get in, I bump my head off the door jam. Then, as I drive, my head rubs on the roof. Has anyone run into this problem, and what do I do to fix it??

    95 2wd 2.3 quit...no spark or fuel??

    This one is throwing me for a loop. My truck sat all winter, spring came around and it fired right up. Drove it back and forth to work for a week, no problem. Went to the store on Sunday morning, as I turned in, it died. No stumble, no surge, no anything. Like I turned off the key. I have...

    Explorer rear axle lowering?

    I am putting a 5.0 in my Ranger, and I have been told that the 7.5 rear is going to explode behind it. I have an 8.8 out of an explorer, which is spring under as you all know. I want to just throw it under my truck, as I want to lower it anyways, and keep it spring under. Is there any reason...

    Droppin my 95...tryin to do my homework.

    I have a 1995 2wd ex cab. As of now, it has a 4cyl and 5 speed. I am buying a mustang with a crate 5.0 and a t5. Guess where that's going? Yup, right in that engine bay. At the same time, I want to drop it and put some new rims, either 17 or 18 inch on it. I have done enough research to...

    Lowered 96 ranger questions

    Ok...Little late, but my .02 cents..... The rocking axle....I have an idea. I see daylight between pad and spring on one side, not the other. Seeing the half-assed way he did things, I am guessing the perches are probably a couple degrees off each other. You might want to check that out....

    Almost a build thread!!!!

    Startin to get my crap together to build my truck. Just picked up a 2.3 turbo motor out of a XR4Ti---complete with full wiring harness, and computer. Dude even threw in a Saab intercooler. Now I need to concentrate on the rear axle. The open 7.5 needs updated. I found a 8.8 out of a t-bird...

    Bench seat/sub box in Ex-cab ranger....?

    My new endeavor.....I want a couple subs in my truck. I don't crank them, but they add to the rock sound, and I like them. Problem is, I have kids that occupy the seats in back, so a big bulky box is out of the question. I saw a guy on Craigslist about a year ago selling a custom box that ran...

About a week ago, battery started to lose power (Slower cranking over the course of a week) and finally went dead while I was at work. I got it started, drove it around for over an hour, and...

    Ok...personal opinions?

    I am going to SAS my truck...this much I know. Now on to the hard part. There are 4 options out there, as most of you know. Ford TTB Dana 35, Jeep D30, EB D30 or D44, or fullwidth. I realize everyone has their own opinions, and most of you have sas'd already. Please respond as to why you...

    Input please?

    So,I have a '94 suburban. I know, I know....Stupid....but it was cheap, and I got 3 kids, so I thought it was a good idea. Well, it dont have a back seat, nor does it have the shit to put the rear seat in it. So, I am trying to sell it. Guy emails me, asking if I want to trade for a '95...

    So, I got an idea.

    This had to have been thought of/done before, but I searched this site and didn't see anything about it. I have the opportunity to buy a 68 bronco chassis. It comes with engine (289), tranny (3 speed manual) and t-case (dana 20), as well as the axles. I also have the chance to buy a ranger...

    Swap cost?

    I searched---couldn't find what I was looking for. Does anyone have a ballpark cost of doing a 5.0 swap? I have a 93 STX I wanna put a 302 into. I am going to go through it, make sure everything looks good. Other than that, just re-gasket it and new oil pump and pan. That cost will be...

    My plans for my truck....in case anyone has any input.

    So, I got a 93 stx ex-cab 4x4. When it's done (Are they ever really done??) I plan on having a 5.0, 5 speed and tcase out of a f-150 in it. I plan on having to build my own tranny x-member for that. :icon_welder: Mild build on the 5.0, keep it injected, etc etc. D30 front axle, keep the 8.8...

    Love the 4.0, but....

    This engine has issues. Biggest one is an intermittent hesitation/loading up feeling. Take off, and it feels like you are hauling a huge trailer behind you. Get to about 2000-2300 rpm, and whatever it is breaks free, and it goes like a bat outta hell. If it did it all the time, I wouldn't be...

    93 stx issues

    My truck has issues, that I am aware of. It's the issues that it just recently started having that annoy me. The vibration at low speed that goes away when I push in the clutch...the tires setting their own air pressure....that kind of stuff. The big one is this: 4.0, 5 speed, 4x4. When I...
