    the time has finally come for me to upgrade the front suspension. the stock ranger hubs were needing new bearings after each trip and i was just tired of it. what started as just new beams, radius arms and steering has snowballed into a full front half rebuild. there goes my summer! started off...

    Torsion bar vs Coil spring preference

    theres nothing wrong with the coil spring rangers. neither long travel kit (coil spring or torsion bar) will keep its respective spring set up, they will both be switched to coilover with a new fabricated shock mount. that being said the torsion bar frame is much easier to switch to Long travel...

    Fuel pump and tank question

    oh yeah then a sender is no biggie. yeah pretty much all fuel pumps will pump alot more than 50 so that isnt a concern. also run a inline pre filter before the pump to make its life easier. i use a 10 micron pre filter and a 100 micron post filter after the pump. heres a link to the pump i use...

    Fuel pump and tank question

    theres two ways to skin the cat here. you can either take the stock fuel pump/sending unit and put it inside the new cell. youll have to make a custom fill plate to hold it down. if you do that youll have to lengthen the fuel lines and lengthen the rods on the pump unit itself to reach the...

    Need a metal workers opinion on what to use.

    personally. im a fan of cold rolled steel. stronger, and welds way nicer. if youre going to be using a mig welder i wouldnt use anything under 11GA (1/8th "ish") just to make your life way easier.

    HYDROBOOST BRAKES?

    yeah id like to keep power brakes if possible. my question is if the ranger steering pump puts out enough pressure to run brakes too, or if ill have to upgrade it. through research ive learned that high pressure line runs from pump to brake booster then another high pressure from booster to...

    HYDROBOOST BRAKES?

    room under the hood for shocks and tube work. the brake booster is right in the way of necessary tube work for shock towers and correct shock placement! my only option is with dual master cylinder manual brakes from like tilton or wilwood, or maybe a hydroboost set up if anyone's got any info on it.

    deaver leaf springs with a bed cage and some bypass shocks would work great for a while. or some sort of 4 link kit. those are much more involved with fab work and needing a fuel cell and stuff
