ok , after a 3 month Hiatus i am back in business , i have missed this place and i am back into the RBV repair swing , a little update on each of the vehicles

1- 96 Explorer - Going into the tranny shop this week to have the new trans installed so i can start DD'ing it again

2- 90 Bronco II - had a decent first run but found the 3.45 gears to be lacking

3- 97 Ranger - being towed home soon along with the 00 Ranger to commence the engine swap , going to add a bunch of performance accesories when i put the new engine in and adding new rims/tires/spacers and starting to rebuild the body

4- 00 Ranger - Starting the tear down soon

5- Level II - lost cause for the current moment

and that is it in a nutshell , i will now be on here every night for at least an hour a night , until i get the wireless set up so i can run my laptop in the garage , then i will be on more

3.45s are lacking. I have a cammed up engine in my Ranger with 3.45s. I just bought a stock b2 with 3.73s. I know, not a big difference in ratios, but the B2 seems like it has more power on the street.

Welcome back bud.

i have a 4.0 that is getting built for it , but it is gonna take some time because it is getting a bunch of performance stuff done to it , but the engine was free

glad your back bud!

mine is a 2.9/5-speed/3.45/31x10.50's , so just about as bad
