Default "The Soldiers Curse" My 1993 Ranger that is a work in Progress

I just picked up my 1993 Ranger a couple weeks ago. It is going to be my toy but i am still going to keep it to where im going to be able to drive it every day when i need to. Right now its got the 7.5 rear end, im looking into doing the 8.8 swap and 4.56's. It has the 3.0 V-6, a 3" body lift, and 31x11.50x15 Super Swamper LTB's.

Update: Now an 8.8 and 4.88's. Hopefully it will be done soon...
