    Gunna do a little body work, drop in a 360 and fresh 727. Then lift it 4"s and put some 33's or 35's on it and use it as a cruiser or recovery truck. I picked it up for $400 dollars so I have a little room to play!!

    460 Build for my Bronco

    Yeah my 750lb stand didnt have that brace but the 1000lb stand does, but what flexes on that is the actual spinning plate the engine bolt up to. Its holding up though so I guess its alright. Just worries me when you flip the engine over to stab a piston and that thing flexes back and forth, my...

    460 Build for my Bronco

    Yeah these things are beast and everything about them is heavy. Any clue on how much the assembled 460 weighs in stock form. I know I have a 750 lb engine stand and it was bent over enough that I was kinda worried about it breaking!! So I got a 4 wheel thousand pound stand and that one...

    ranger axle swap

    I understand it will give me a lot of lift. The back of the truck WITH shackles still sits about 2" lower than the front. So if I took out the shackles, that would put me 4" lower than the front, then did the SOA conversion, it would put me "about" 2" higher in the back than the front. Then when...

    ranger axle swap

    The ranger has a 8.8 in it. Not sure if its original or if it was swapped in, but it is a 8.8 for sure. Looked up the numbers on it. Does it have weaker internals or something? I know it will give me a lot of lift, but with my saggy springs and a stock shackles, with all my junk in the back I...
