The wheels were cheap enough to give em a shot. If they break, I will do something different.


The way I figure, Ford make those hubs that big for a reason, I don't want to weaken them by turning them down. Any thoughts that?

Unless the H2 wheels require more modification than the H1's you're only talking about .040" per side off the base of the hub at the wheel flange, which is tapered so you're really not removing much strength at all.

EDIT - I guess the H2 wheel has a MUCH smaller hub diameter that the H1's, so you're only option is to machine the wheel. My Bad

It all looks nice, good work. Did you have to machine down your ring gear on the 14 bolt for how much you shaved it? Been thinking about doing that myself..winter project.

BTW Me and a few guys are running up to R&V Saturday morning if your interested.

I shaved about 1.5" off the bottom, and no, it didn't get into the ring gear so we are good...no more lip on the bottom to get Hung up on.

I would like to go but I have to work and I don't have my truck ready...sold my tires

Great looking ranger! I just read all 30 pages and got a ton of ideas for my 2002 2wd ranger / soon to be 4wd truggy.

Thanks for taking the time!


Got my rock rings today, they are steel. I am gonna drill and tap some holes and bolt them to the rims. Should add a bit of protection and they will be removable. I got 5 of them from tab, great guy to deal with btw. He took my dimensions I sent him, drew up a design and cut em out for a great price.

Here is a good question, what kind or power steering pump should I get? Brandon, you said something about a small gm pump, care to remind me what I should be looking for?

I really want the saginaw Ford pump, but I can't find one very easy, any places I can look for one?

I am using the Saginaw Type 2 (or TC)on both of my rangers, they were used on a lot of jeeps (cherokee's in the mid 90's for sure) and many GM vehicles. There are 2 different designs, piggyback reservoir and remote reservoir and both were available on the cherokee. One of mine is from a 1987 Pontiac Sunbird, and the one on the truggy is a hopped up version from Trail Gear. The factory output volume will easily run a gearbox and assist, just not full hydro very well.

I have been really happy with both of the TC pumps I have, they are very simple to build mounts for and the remote reservoir model will fit in the most cramped of engine bays. Summit racing has a few models that are already set-up with AN style fittings for leak proof and easy connections for not much more cost than a standard parts store replacement. Not to mention you won't pay a core with Summit.

I also have a Ford Type 1 Saginaw pump off a Mercury car (78-ish) if you're interested in that at all.
