OK, It's a Long Story, I'm not a good writer so Please be patient.
My truck is a 88 xlt single cab with a long bed, at least IT was some time ago.
She has been in the family for more than 15 years, she started on my father 's farm and work there 12 years.
When my father sold the farm I stay with the truck.
When I started using it was completely stock, then I try putting on some 31's, they were not very well, they rub at full lock. AND that's when it all started
I started the research on Google, and then I found THE RANGER STATION....
pass from the differential dana 35 and ford 8.8 , class II skyjacker long arms , 63 's chevy 's and much more , ending a month ago with the SAS , dana 44 front and back , trussed front , 5.13 gears , flatbed , etc.
Here 's some pics:

Very impressive! That's quite a transformation. About how long did it take?

It takes about two and a half Years since stock. It has been very difficult because in Mexico everything is more expensive and difficult to obtain, but I love my truck and I love to go 4wheelin!!
I'm working on the doubler, hydro assist and hope to an exo too. :icon_welder:
