Just went and drove the ranger, everything seems to work fine. Only 2 issues with running, it is cold blooded and the alternator isn't charging.

Just need to align it better, shorten the track bar, make shifter linkages for the tcase and fab a skid plate and it will be time to flog it.

Pic for proof

What size do you need and what brand?
Also, check what length limit straps you ordered for me, I have 2 of them 2" longer than those if they are the right length

I have a jd2 model 3 bender and I would like 1.750 toob or something around there.

I need 16" straps, I got you 16's to replace your 18's iirc. I already ordered them anyway. Thanks

Yes you need one. Kick down is on the drivers side of the trans.

depends on what year c6 you have. Could be manual linkage up to carb or cable up to throttle body. Mine is cable operated. But the clip on the TB has been broken since I installed the windsor and c6. I just manualy control kickdowns.
