    How do I remove the chrome out of the emblems "ford" script.....

    When I seperated the 2 pieces of the ford emblem, some of the chrome came out of the ford script. Now I want to remove all the chrome out of the ford script, so I can paint the script portion a different color. I know some of you guys have done this. Thanx guys.

    ABS light on after SAS

    I know there is a Ranger forum, but since it doesn't get much use, I'll post here instead. I searched and couldn't find any info on this. I have a '97 Ranger that I done a D44 SAS on. Since I got rid of the ABS front axle (D35), the ABS light is on all the time. Is there a way to trick...

    dana 35/dana 44 knuckle/spindle swap questions

    I have read that solid (I assume) dana 44 knuckles and/or spindles will fit on a dana 35 ttb. Is that statement correct? Or are they talking about swapping the parts between a 35 ttb and a 44 TTB? I am wondering, because I have a '97 dana 35 ttb and I have a solid dana 44 out of a '79...

    Solid Dana 44 q's not yet answered.....

    or at least I couldn't find the answers anywhere. What are the spacings on the c-bushing mounts for the full size 44s? I am researching putting a coil spring FS 44 under a 97 Ranger and cutting the passenger side tube down to EB axle length. If I cut the tube between the c-bushing mount and...
