    Buying someones build project is like getting a new girl friend with a kid. Even if she's worth it, your still picking up on someones slack.


    Just my 2 cents.

    I liked the rear end. There was alot of work under there. What kind of gets me is he quit after all the rear end work is finished, the front probably has just upper tubular arms and bags. The front cross member and frame are no where near all the way down. The paint is different, even though its just sanded to give it that old flat aged look, but the interior wasn't hit in any type of way to meet with the rest of the truck other than an extended shifter. Hell a Grant woodgrain steering wheel would at least some what tried to flowed with the rest of the truck.

    Like I said. When you buy something someone else left off from, your just finishing what the lazy bastard didnt want to do.

    I was impressed until I saw he cut the bedsides. Fuckin lame...why not run 18s?

    True

    I did. I sold mine to a guy from Connecticut. I wish I still had it.

    That is an i-beam truck and it is probably not cut enough to lay all the way. Getting the front of a Ranger really hammered takes a lot of work.

    I have two friends who both own/owned rangers of the same year. Both are slammed fully on the ground. Frame and all, they both tell me the work they had to do to get it to slam fully wasn't easy. How and what they did, I have no idea. Every time they tell me something about it, I have a A.D.D. moment and forget. Either way, its not an impossible task to do.

    I too didn't like the cut into the fenders either.

    in order to get an i-beam Ranger to lay frame ALL the way around, you have to get a radius arm cross member relocator as well as a transmission cross member relocator. both of which can be purchased at SuicideDoors.com for less than $200. ive got both but havent installed the radius arm relocator yet.

    Yes I got my radius brackets and tranny crossmember from SilverStar. I also had to notch the engine crossmember and the driver side tie rod, and cut out the fender wells. It was a lot of work. In relation, the S10 is like the Civic of minitrucks. It was built to bag and everything is super easy.
