rawrrediffer86 damn thats a lucky job for a gunna be wheeler! :headbang:

if i was you, id find a 1988-98 chevy 1500 in your junk yard, take the rear leaf springs and do the 63” chevy swap, its on the site here. that way you can ditch the shitty double stacked blocks and gain some crazy flex to match your new 6” lift!
and if your anywhere near the Ft. Madison-Muscitine, IA area let me know! i needs a new parts gal lol :icon_thumby:

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.....le 'em talk! Do what YOU want to make YOUR Ranger look & handle the way YOU want it.

Which sub-forum will you be posting build-pics in?

Great job that YOU have too....by the way !

i was thinking 4.88s wasnt too sure yet. still a project. gonna take a weekend & do it. ill definitley have to get some pics up. also gonna pick up a new front clip for it. 01+ i like the honeycomb grill. couldt beat the deal for the ranger tho. $800 rust free. :) had a cracked head so picked up a new motor with 60K on it for $250 BAM ready to go from there. :)

$800 and rust free?? Man that was a steal!!! I paid $1300 for mine and thought it was a good deal and I had to completely gut the interior. It was the most disgusting thing I have ever had the displeasure of sitting in and the cab corners are rusted through into the extended cab. I am getting ready to order the 4.88s. I want the extra low end grunt for pulling a trailer and possible larger tires in the future. Good luck on the build!

Rockford? I was just down there for a super bowl party. started out in the morning at the Swithoid Club for Herring breakfest and bloody marys. Been down there 8 times in six months. Used to live right next to the Flying "J" (?) before it was built. Bought several things from Loves Park Auto and Abe's. You take orders? I sure can make up a wish list.
