I was when I first got it together. The mitsu tranny was making noise before I did the Sas and only got progressively worse after. I just picked up a mazda 5speed and a bw1354 manual case. DD again real soon. :D At least 50% of the time. :rolleyes: C-ya.

Do you have any more pics of that modded coil bucket? I am thinking of swapping to coils here soon and like how you did it.
Any?

Has anybody checked out the dana 30 write up in the technical library? That is one damn fine ranger all the way at the bottom.:D I have no idea how he picked mine out of all of them. Sweet!

yeah right!

The crossmember and the frame brackets are my favorite parts as in the way they turned out and look. In that same sense, they were also the biggest pain. I wanted to make the bends on the x member all one piece but my buddy did not have a die that was a small enough radius to pull it off. So then I had to section it and weld it. It was a major hooker! Fun, but very time consuming. Thanks for the comps.

I am glad I found this thread after looking at the TRS tech page. I'm going to a D30 on my 90 Ranger as soon as I can find a HP with 4.10s. Really nice work. Was wondering if there is a better shot of your trackbar mount...

truck update

I have been driving this truck again about 30% of the time normally and 100% of the time when the weather is rough. I have driven it to work for the last six days solid putting 80 miles a day on 35's that I run on it now. The truck had been on the back-burner for a couple of years, but I think it might be moving back up front!:)
