Gottsta hack out the IFS x member. Gottsta figure out a front driveshaft (usually) Gottsta bolt up a steering gear box, and gottsta fab up a steering column.

There's shit tons more. But check out a lot of the build threads.

I, as well as many others are runnin leaves on the 98+ Rangers, due to ease and cost and the lack of coil buckets.

What are you building your truck to do and what's your budget?

Also if you need more ideas looked at explorer4x4.com, cause 95-01 Explorers have a very similar front end and procedures in SASing, I did a 97 Explorer, using Coil buckets and James duff long arms. But I recommend using full witdh axle from like 76-77 F-150 with weld on wedges that can be moved inward but not to far, compared to like Early Bronco Dana 44s, or narrowed 6in full witdhs, the coil bucket seats are a little to tight for your frame, it has wider distance between rails than the earlier rangers, so coil will be tight and rub on frame if not going full witdh unless u want to run coilovers that fix's the problem.
