Since I was doing these I thought I would Submit a how to. First off the parts. I bought these kits off ebay. At 43.95 a side its way cheaper than ford and includes the bolts. Even though they are made in China(and I'm pro american) the Ford ones are definatley junk! Both sides shipped to my...

I read posts daily but don't post alot. Just thought I'd share. As you can tell by my sig I have been messing with Rangers for a while. I bought number 15 rolled and did a body swap. The gold body I bought without a title and the truck had a reconstructed title anyway so I did a quick swap...
I picked up this project truck and will be painting it soon, probably next week. I would like to keep some green (not likely to be the same shade)because of the jamms/engine compartment,... anything goes. I was thinking two tone with black over green or green over silver or green with stripes...
Thought I would pic whore my new paint. I will be putting this up for sale within a week or so but its not a classified (mods please don't delete)
If any ones interested pm me or email me at email@example.com I still have a few little things to do but she's looking good!
I finally got the project truck painted. Unfortunatley the paint didn't come out as good as I would have liked it. Usually I don't have to do much buffing but this time I either had to buff or repaint due to a few runs and orangepeel...#$@%$#@
I use 1000 grit on runs...
I picked up this wrecked 2000 yesterday. Plans are to put it on an edge frame and convert it to 4wd as funds allow. The front is wrecked so I have to decide what year I want it to look like. Here is the only pick right now but I will add some more.
Does anybody know if I can use 2004 air bags with a 2000 controller? Even if you know where I can get information on air bags maybe I can find an answer. I want to use newer air bags for the newer look(plus I already have them)
I thought I'd show some progress on my project truck. Well I picked up this jewel with a good drivetrain, frame, and clean title. 4.0 5sp
took the body off...
Then I picked up this donor body(no title)
then I swapped the body out
I needed some parts so I hit certifit up
trial fit them...
Since I am on here all the time I thought I'd post a couple of my latest projects
98 2.5 auto XL- was supposed to have a bad trans...needed a front seal
2000 4.0 5 sp ext cab XLT- rolled- will be getting a body
Of course my driver 99 with edge front end
Every couple weeks about 5 or 6 of us with rangers from the other site have been meeting up for some 4 wheeling. If anybody's interested we are planing a meet in Jeanette on may 17th. Here's a few pics from our other meets. Enjoy!!!
On my project truck the front drive shaft has been off for a while, and the cage and the balls have come out. Does any body know the proceedure to reassemble the joint or atleast the sequence of the parts to assemble it?
Just an update on my project truck. It always seems to take longer than you think wjhen your doing bodywork. I am hopeing to have the garage cleaned up and some paint on this weekend. Working a couple hours a night is slow.
I've been hanging around for a while without posting much. Thought maybe you guys would like to see my current project(I always have atleast one...lol)

The tear down:
I am building a truck right now. My exhaust is 2001 and my wiring is 1999. The plugs are different on the o2 sensors. I don't want to go and buy 3 new sensors so I need to wire them up but don't know which color wires go together.
