What are you going to do with the 4x4 I-beams. Could use the dana 38 stuff for my 84 ranger. What gears are in them And how much woul you want? No rush If it takes a while to get your swap done. Have you got a manual or electronic t-case?

ummm, a body drop is where you cut the floor from the body and drop the body down over the floor a few inches...right? if that is the case then why will the fame or i-beams need to be notched?
do you know anyone personly that has done this?(used the ranger i-beams) because i have heard a horrier story about it and it scared me! even thow there are a few people that have used them an say they work
well Yes a traditonal body drop you cut the floor and lower it till it hits the ground but i am doing a stock floor body drop witch means i am making the bottom of the frame level with the rocker that way when i air my bags out the rocker will be on the ground and when you go this low it is a muct to noch the chassie tech beams for the engin crossmember and frame in manny places like the tierods and the rearend.
And Yes there is a user on this bord with ranger beams on a explorer his name is racinjason68.
