I used my stock ranger master until I switched to tons, I think you will be fine.

Like I said on RS, maybe I will at least upgrade to the 96+ Ranger master and see how that feels.

Slow progress this week due to waiting on parts.

I did however do a tune up on the motor which needed plugs,cap and rotor much more than I thought. I got a 96 Explorer master mounted up for brakes. And I got the axle in position for mock up. I tore the Kings down and will be setting the up for 4" of stuff and 8" of droop.

I ordered weld on coilover brackets from Ballistic Fab that will put lower mount between upper balljoint and radius arm wedges.
I also got frame brackets,1.25 Heims,inserts are being machined to fit my 2" .250 wall tubing and Im having the stock radius arms machined down so they will slide into the tubing.I will do final welding once I have decided on what length they will need to be. I got 7 C-bushings that I hope will work out with a lengthened stock radius arm.
I test fitted my trimmed fenders also.



And built my tray for the primary battery.

Well Im still waiting for my trans to get finished and still waiting on shop to finish my radius arms. Been working on little stuff in the meantime.

Fuel lines are now all ran. Going to be making a panel behind seat to mount all my relays and wiring for the fan,fuelpump and rear lights. Cutting a hole in corner of cab near where the battery is mounted and using a grommet to run wiring thru to each accessory.

I got my lower coilover brackets from Ballistic that fit the D44 knuckle.

Wish I had a "before" pic of my old Bronco2 front bumper but I forgot.I chopped it down and cut it up a little and refit it so it works on the Ranger now. Turned out great and the tube bumper looks awesome with the other tubing.

I bolted up the glass hood and got it all lined up and installed the pins. Had to add some fiberglass filler to one edge and after its sanded down I will hit it with some fresh white paint.

Thanx guys.

Got a call from the trans shop today. All the thrust bearings were toast and the planetary was ready to come apart. Caught it just in time looks like. Will have it finished by Monday and I can have it in by Tuesday I hope.

Well I pick up my trans tomorrow. Had to do a complete rebuild since all the thrust bearings were toast and the planetary was on the verge of coming apart. Caught it just in time.
Also waiting for my upper coilover mounts,CB stuff,trackbar mount and GPS speedo from Speedhut to show up. Been doing a ton of wiring and so far the fan,backup lights and fuel pump are all wired up.


Went and got a bunch of 1inch copper stuff and my buddy and me got the cooling system all plumbed. No leaks!

Here how it turned out following the path of flow...








Also finished the hood.


Starting to lay out the new gauges for the dash and start wiring in some tunes. Ordering one of these http://www.kicker.com/pxi502 so I wont have a normal radio/cd player. Its waterproof and I have some nice 4x6 2ways to mount behind the seat.

Well still waiting on my speedo but here is how the cluster is turning out. Oil,water,volts,fuel,speedo and switches for all the lites.



Got the trans back and intalled.All fresh inside,new converter,locking dipstick and made a new crossmember.Put the 1350 in for now until I get the doubler.



The front half of the exhaust is on but I can already see I will have clearance issues on drivers side with the front driveshaft...will deal with that later.

And I got all new shoes. 37x12.5-16 Iroks on 16x10 Black Rock Lobo wheels.. Now its lookin better!

Also whats everybodies opinion on driveline angle? I have the trans pointing down 10 and to me the t-case looks to far below the framerail. I cant level it out anymore than that because my oil filter adapter is already touching my steering box.

What oil relocator you using? I had to get one that came out on a 90, and moved my motor over about an 1" for it all to work.
