I put together a video about the truck, not very good but here it is.I built this truck to fulfill a longtime "in my mind" project. I have a build thread that I will keep all info on the build but I wanted to record the suspension setup and race results in a separate thread.
Link to build
Starkman's Rally Ranger now B5000
Open, I have a set of 4.10 diffs from an Explorer Sport waiting. I think some of the handling issues will be fixed by a LSD in the rear.Nice vid! Truck sure looks like fun!
Do you have a locker or limited slip in the rear?
I guess it was boring for me, you had all the fun! BTW, the only issue I had with your work was the shifter cable clip came loose, pushed it back in and good. So, just want to thank you for a very thorough and great work! Its been sitting for months and charged the battery and it started first crank! I'm about to start a new direction with it. Going trail truck, my step son is getting his license and he will be driving it. Thinking overland build. Hope you are doing well.Glad to see it still kickin around
What is so boring about doing a v8 conversion?
I enjoyed the video!
Having fun in a RBV is what this is all about! (and beating jeeps)
I have 2 sets of those tires!I love it. If I wasn't retiring, I'd be asking for details of those studded tires you race with.
Very nice, I would have used them most every year since about 2003 if I knew of them then. I put on my studded Nokian tires yesterday, our weather forecast was so vague I had to bet on snow or ice. I'm happy we are just east of the storm front, but I had to baby the tires on bare pavement for about 110 miles. Nashville has snow and ice there since early this morning, it's a mess in most places.I have 2 sets of those tires!

well heck yeah!!! That is good news!!
It will make an awesome trail truck, Mazda 4wd with a 5.0 = win win
We are doing well here in North Idaho that is for sure, hanging in there through all this crazyness
