Default Danger Ranger

95 Ranger, it was my first vehicle. Completely stock when i bought it. I have had it for almost 3 years. V-6 4.0L, Dana 35 ttb, Ford 8.8, with 265's on it.

Installed a 4" Rough Country lift. Wheeled it a few times and saved up some cash to buy 33's and some black Dick Cepek 15x10's.



The 33's rubbed to bad on the 10" wide rim to wear it wasnt even driveable. So I parked it and waited for the 6" skyjacker coils to come.

Wheeled it with the 6" lift.

Decided that the 33's were too small after this adventure.

So i added a 3" body lift.

Blew out three wheel bearings on each side since i lifted it and decided it was time for SAS. Ripped out the front axle and bought a dana 44 out of a early bronco.

UPDATE: I picked up another pair of radius arms because the ones that came with the axle were junk. I got the axle painted, the caliper brackets, knuckles, and the radius arms.
Also got a couple deliveries from the big brown truck. Detroit truetrac, 5.13 R&P, install kit, u-joints, bearings, seals, and STICKERS haha

Got the axle in this past week and my tires and rims mounted. All the parts have been ordered except for shocks. Hopefully getting some deliveries tomorrow. Got my steering ordered to. Ordering my rear gears and spool this week from Classic City. Hope to have it ready to wheel by the 6th. Were headed to the mounds then for the last run of this season before they close.

The RANGER sticker came on the truck. Got some work done today. Wheel bearings, rotors, calipers, one brake line, I broke the passenger side hard line so I got to get a flaring tool and a new line. Got the front tires on it too, sitting on the ground its huge.
