      Sunday morning trip to pic a part and take complete rear axle from this 2000 ex.

      Got axle pulled and gears and locker are installed. Did pick up parts to convert brake lines and emergency brake over to tie into 92.

      Very well done. Whats up with the front ball joints?
      Did you consider running the 96-97 Ranger outers (knuckles) with dual caliper pistons instead of the 90-95 D35 slide pin calipers?

      I have not looked at that option. This is the first ttb build I've ever done so I'm learning the whole time with the beams.

      There will be another stop at the pick a part to locate those ranger parts.

      No sweat I totally understand that! YOu picked a great place to start.
      I ran the slide pin style brakes for many years, they work good. However the 96-97 Ranger used a slightly different knuckle, the caliper mounts with slide bolts and the calipers are dual piston, much better braking performance!
      Finding the parts in the junk yard is the most difficult part

      Last night got the seats in and new quick disconnect wheel. Mainly as part of the anti theft option since these are so easy to get in.

      Little test run today. Small flex picture.

      Need to get rear shocks and mounts. Shocks are limiting deaver travel by about 50%

      Looking good ! I would be tempted to use clear RTV and some broadhead "Marson" rivets for the QP install in case it needed changed quickly.
