Well, didn’t get to spend as much time today on the Ranger as I wanted to, but got to spend a little time down there, cleaning some things up and prepping stuff today. Hopefully I can hit it hard tomorrow. Need to work out a few details really soon.
Need to settle on a leaf pack to build. I stuck several possible pack configurations together and compressed them and I’m still not really sure what to make of it. Posted all about it in the 4x4 suspension forum. If I can pick one in the next day or so, I can get the rear axle in.
My Ranger rear driveshaft has the wrong bolt pattern flange on it to mate to the AWD t-case. Don’t remember this being a problem before with this swap, but I have the Explorer rear shaft. The one flange has a couple gouges in it from a U-joint failure but probably still would be ok? Thought about trying to work some weld into it, I’m guessing it’s cast steel? Could use the other flange too I guess.
