the time has finally come for me to upgrade the front suspension. the stock ranger hubs were needing new bearings after each trip and i was just tired of it. what started as just new beams, radius arms and steering has snowballed into a full front half rebuild. there goes my summer!
started off with cutting EVERYTHING off the front of the frame. old engine cage and all. decided to switch over to manual brakes so i can lean my shock back as far as possible and get good motion on it.

i managed to mount a big pedal in the "factory" location while still utilizing the big aluminum steering colum mount SCORE! and will be using dual tilton master cylinders to contol braking (hopefully)
