Why not, right? We were the first to deal with the IFS so lets see what we've learned in 10 years.


Was: 2000 Ford Ranger XLT style side, 3.0 Flex, 4r44e, BW-1354 shit on the fly, D35, 28 spline 8.8", bought stock.






Is: Sas'ed with a HP D44 and Ford 9", 4.30 gearing, molly shafts, 63s/4" blocks/extended shackles in the rear, custom x member with hangers/ bastardized chebby 52" leaf pack/ extended shackles, 3" body lift, about 8" suspension lift, 35x15.5r15s swamper TSLs (37s next pay check) and some other little do-dads.

I Love your truck!! Is really awesome!! With all respect, I don´t like the front bumper, because I think it really don´t match with this beauty. Do you have any videos or more pics? Congrats.

My credo
If you can't go through it or around it, then go over it.
didn't Toyota get IFS about the same time? in 1984? sorry but I don't really consider TTB a true IFS. it is more of a hybrid of IFS and a straight axle. now if I had a 98+ ranger or a 95 - 2001 explorer then yes I would be junking the IFS for a straight axle.

nice looking rigs, both of you.

I aint even going to post a picture of mine till I get my SAS done... which won't be till I get another job so its gonna be a while :sad:

But imagine a navy extended cab flareside with body damage, no lower valence, duel exhaust with bent tips, and balding 265 bfg a/t's... Somehow I still love this thing :D

All of these are 4th Gen trucks (98+) so they have the A-Arm setup instead of ttb.
