ZORQUE'S 1998 Ford Ranger S.A.S.

This idea has been in my head now for a good bit, plans of pulling this torsion bar b/s out of my 98 ranger and going solid. Running this year in mud bogs we are using a 96 ranger with ttb style suspension but is outfitted with a 2.3 4cyl and 5.13 gears with absolutely no power. So this end of summer/winter project is to go solid in my current daily driver since it has a v6 and it would just be bad*ss

Has anyone here done this body style and can give me any ideas/pointers? I have a dana 44 out of early bronco and plan to find a 9" rear for the back :thumbsup:

your SAS will be exactly like it was on your 94 Explorer except the steering box is different so you will need to get a 1st gen steering box and mount that to your frame.
