Slow, we're thinking of finding a f350 donor for a pair of 60's instead of the ttb 50. Just takes money
Looks good, the tires are way to small though.
33s on dana 60s?? I hope you plan on going to at least 38"... :
33 on rockwells for the win!
I think you should stick to the D50, it would be so much cooler! And I want you to figure out everything so I can do a D44 TTB on my truck later.
So looks like change of plans We have been discussing what to do with the Frame, as I said before it's pushed in 1/2" back on the driver side in between the front two mounts. we really didn't want to put money into the frame for straightening... This has been our hold up right now.
and then the answer fell in our lap. While down buying some DOM from a guy on DR, he donated a to us a '95 Supercab Ranger Cab, on a stripped 2wd frame.
This should speed up some things, as the frame will be set up for a steering box already, dash is the same, and we can box the frame from the beginning. We'll transplant the SOHC, and thinking of using the Explorer front clip still. Most likely the rest of the Sport will be sold for scrap.. after we take off what ever else we need or what ever else can be sold..
The sad part is I really wanted to save this truck....but it's just to far gone. There is evidence of at least 3 different accidents in this truck. It's really been trough a lot, and yet still starts up and moves on it's own. It;s heart will live on though..... that I promise.
Sad to see you couldn't save the frame. I'm glad part of her will live on. A testament to the toughness of the Explorer
A new frame! a new body! and a few other goodies all for a super deal
$1200 loaded out the door!
Miller welder with custom cart
half-body with good frame(FREE)
heim joints ad bric-a-brac(LOL)
various and sundrie extra bits
and so now we begin AGAIN
Frickin awesome! That table is gonna be nice! Along with the welder.. and the body.. and frame.
that low, those tires, would make an awesome rat rod lol
I hope this build goes faster then the other ranger in the yard.
This is your contribution to the group spare truck right?
So far Zukman and I have donated to the project...So it's more like our spare truck at this point..:
Just secured these Pick up next weekend.
Aw no D50 TTB
for the 60's tho
Actually one is a 60:
at least i was 50% right
Well I thought zukman would put these up by now....
So I'll help him out. He picked up some bling last week for the project.
Went up the coast a bit and picked up a pair of.... TONS!
and then rolled down PCH.
Last pic is with one of the new wheels.
Very nice...get some Line-X in that poor Ford:
it was all shiney when he bought it! :
On the look out for another set of Meats...after some thoughts, the Boggers just weren't right for this project. So we'll see what we find. Stay Tuned!
What size are the wheels?
