so i started this thread with the intent of posting my truck, ideas, and progress. but now it seems pointless to me because i cant post pictures. what good is a build thread going to be to anyone without pictures?

can anyone help me out or is this forum never going to see my project?

so i took this thing wheeling a little more than it could handle. broke enough stuff up front to cost over $2000, so when i found out that i could do a dana44/9inch swap for about that i went for it. but its going to cost more than $3000, oh well such is life

and so now that this is figured out, here is my stock ranger, just a little guy

stock:


after it got a set of 32X11.5 mud tires:





she didnt really flex much:

here are some of my bronco which is where the axles came from.
looked a little rough when i picked it up for $500:





then a few cans of flat black later, along with ripping off the stupid chrome trim, new bumper, and a rough country 4 inch lift, this thing was pretty sick!





after i stripped her of what i needed and parted the rest out, it was a sad day when she said good bye...



i drove it for a couple hundred miles after i bought it before the engine seized, coolant all leaked out and i was a dumbass cause i just never checked it. but it was ok, that just meant that it was time to take it apart. all in all i kept the dana 44, 9 inch, all suspension stuff, and the rear seat cause it fits in the bed of the ranger real nice! got rid of the rest of the shit for half of what i paid for it, pretty awesome!
