Looks great! Most of the bumpers that I looked at or found stuck out way to far in the rear. This fits good, nice Kyle!

I didn't want it bigger than factory, I actually wanted it shorter, but the receiver and the gas tank didn't want to play together. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Can you tie the corner of the bumper where the exo attaches, to the frame? A good hit in that corner will bend the tube into the body.

I can, but I didn't like it. That is why I doubled up on the bumper. Maybe after he 4 links it and I know the axle placement I can add more to it.

Out with the old 2.9 and in with the newer improved 4.0..woot.
Mechanically installed tonight.
Work on tying both harnesses together tomorrow. .

Old engine. ...coolant looked more like MUD..hmm must

New 4.0...:)
So far it has been a bolt in swap...no issues.
The 2 Harnesses However Are Very Different.
May need an all data wire schematic.
Do what I can tomorrow, if not...will get an all data schematic Monday.
:)

Believe it's a 93, and the b2 is an 88. I'm having fun tying the 2 together without having the dash from the 93 ranger.
I have to cut the 93 bulkhead all apart, eliminate the unnecessary wires.
It's getting mechanical Guages, but I still need to make sure the computer gets signal from the factory sensors.
Finally got my side work removed from the barn so I can actually put some time on this bad boy.;)
