Default 87 Ranger Build

Well Im almost done my project, but thought i would still post it up anyways.

Started off with my 1987 Ranger, had a 3" body lift, on 31's


I bought a 6" BDS lift kit, for the truck. Instead of double-stacking blocks in the rear im just using the new 4" block out of the kit. I also swapped in exploder springs, and interwove them with my old Ranger springs.
Picked up a D35 and 8.8 Out of an exploder, for the new axles
Decided to put in 410's at each end with a locker in the rear. Im looking into a locker for the front. But not till after the new year. When i can afford it. Ialso am spray-bombing it as i think it was time to get rid of the shit brown colour, lol, im just flat-blacking it as it will be easier to spray when it gets dented/sctrached. I'm gonna be running 35" GoodyearMTR's.

difference between the 7.5 and 8.8


no more d28!!




new springs


D35 with new coils


difference between stock coil and new 6" coil

Hopefully, the truck will be rolling again before the new year. After the new year i'll be looking into dual t-cases, and maybe some captains chairs out of a bronco. As soon as its done their will be some trail pics going up to see what this bitch will be able to do

Ok, atleast I'm not the only one to notice that! Nice work on the truck so far, should look pretty nice when it gets all done.
