Hey y’all, I have been lurking on these forums for a few months just thought i’d post an intro thread. I have an 88 ranger regular cab short box that was entirely rhinocoated by the previous owner. Drove it for about a year before the massive oil consumption and starting issues with the 2.9 started really bothering me.
So I picked up a 95 f150 with a cracked frame and pretty bad rust but a good condition 5.0 m5od and 1356 manual shift. Also got an 8.8 lsd and a dana 44 TTB front. Currently I am swapping all of these parts into the ranger. Engine axles whole drive line is in just wiring and tubing left.

I wanted to use everything I could from the f150, so I’ve had to do some clearancing and modification to make everything fit.
Here’s a few pics as she sits now.
