This should at least get you started.
Step one: Cut off back half of frame, attach several feet of exhaust tubing for sliders and a good strong base for a roll cage.;missingteeth;
Setp two: place rockwell axle behind hacked up ranger

Was this another member on here with that build? Or was this a Google search?

I've NEVER Done a 4WD In my entire life! I've only done front engine rear wheel drives. and a few front wheel drives And a LOT Of 2WD's. This is my 2nd vehicle.And Im wanting to build a street legal Monster Truck.Like my Great Uncle Bob Chandler's Bigfoot 1.Which has 5 Ton Rockwells and a 640 Hemi Big Block Ford.Bigfoot Ranger was a 1986 Ford Ranger STX 5 Ton rockwells,2 1/2 Ton Transfer Case,C-6 Transmission and a HEMI Big Block Ford 571 CID 1,100 HP Mini Monster Truck.It was 8 foot tall and 8 feet 6 inches wide with 48" Firestone Monster Terrain Tires.The truck was just under 10,000 lbs.It weighed 7,128 WITHOUT The tires The tires weighed around 500 lbs each. I'm wanting to replicate it.But instead of "Bigfoot Ranger" His name is "Little Blue" But Im thinking of spelling blue with a Y instead of a U. I haven't really decided. But anywho that's what I'm wanting to build But with ALOT Less HP.

I'm going to run Dana 35 And Ford 8.8 with 4.88 gears and Eaton Detroit Lockers Front AND Rear then when I FINALLY!!!!!! Get my job being a Professional Monster Truck driver.I'm going to build my truck into a Monster Truck. I'll be using it as a mud/trail/truck pull/show truck.But I MIGHT Just go a head and build it into a monster truck.Heck its better than going a snails pace building it.
