ford ranger SAS

figure i would start an official build thread.
ok so im using a d44 out of a 71 bronco, its completley re-built from hub to hub with cromolly 31 splie shafts and an aussie locker. im using my 8.8 for the rear and thats got a lock right locker in it. running 36/12.5/15 super swamper tsl radials. i got 5" lift springs from marlin crawler and i am using chevy 63" rear leafs. i got a toyota steering box and my shaft is from an early toyota pickup, just had to lengthen it and it works perfectly. and im waiting on my new pitman arm that is just a tit flatter and wont have that joint in it because im using hiems. high steer on the pass. side, and once i get the money i will buy ram assist. on to the pics, this is how she is sitting right now. the front is all done except for tie rod and drag link. then i will start the rear this coming sunday. let me know what you think. sorry for the crappy quality of the pics, there off my camera phone.
p.s. John (mr crawl) is the one helping me with my build. hes a great guy!

Looks pretty good. Is it just me or does it lean to the drivers side?
