FULL width WHITE RHINO

Well i ve been getting alot of Pm's with questions about my ranger so i decided to finally post up my build up. It all started off with a $400 88 ranger STX regular cab long bed. I lifted it 6"s upgraded the axles a little then i met some new buddys that all have crawlers. So i decided to ditch the TTB front for a HP fullwidth Dana 44. I bought a 44 off of craigslist for $200 with all the cast wedges on it. I was going to run them with stock radius arms, bushings, and coils but i decided i wanted to flex alot more than that. I Plated the stock arms grinded them down so i could sleave them with 2" 1/4 wall DOM extended them around a foot and got currie HD johnny joints. made the cross member/t-case skid in a few hours got pre-bent Blue torch 1 3/4 DOM shock hoops welded all that crap on. I got a great deal on 14" 2.0 fox air shocks so i was pretty much ready to flex. I scored a massive deal on 8 lug outers/ 5.13's/detroit/ recentered H1 double beadlocks/6 38" TSL radials half tread/high steer/ heimed dom tierod/ Eaton 14 bolt rear end with disk brake conversion with 5.13s and lincoln locked all for around $1200 I decided to stick with leafs in the rear and picked up some 63" chevys
for $50 and inboarded them and made some shackles. Got the drivelines made ( Steve at South Bay Driveline in San Jose).

All in all it turned out great i have run the con/frank reines/ and hollister a few times with nothing broken. To bad i finished it right before "season ended" so i havent been able to run Four dyce like i wanted too. hope you guys like it heres all the pics i know theres a ton just thought i'd be thorough

I've run across your buildup before. NICE! Appreciate the good pics too. I've been researching this and plan to do a full width Bronco II soon.

It looks like the extended arms hit just perfect under the frame on the crossmember you built. Or did you have to push them in any? I have a welded C-mount D44 instead of the cast so I can cut them off and move them in if I had to. I'll have to see when I mock it up if I will have the room on the BII for extended or if I will just go wristed.

thanks guys, i notched into the crossmember so i could get the johnny joints as high up as possible and the top of the crossmember is opened up to allow the t-case to sit in it its all plated to the max and pretty solid. The c-mounts on the tube are in the stock location i extended the arms so that they were long enough to sit right inside the frame i did however push the front axle forward about 4 inches which puts my wheel base at about 117"s ill post some pics of the crossmember build when i get on my other computer

heres a better shot of the crossmember and arms in action and some random flex shots on the old dodge

once again thanks i was tired all the jeeps and yotas out there, they are all cool and all, but i wanted something different and make people think, what the hell is that?? its still confusing because the emblems on the front clip say bronco II. it took me about 3 months total with a month of actual working on it. the only thing i need is more crawl ratio...... ive built this on a super budget and spent around $3000

The Basic build.. 203-205 doubler, rear springs up front, dana 60 4:88's welded, and some nice shafts once he gets more money.. Pro-comp 63" rears with a shackle flip, dana 70 b with 4:88's welded... Hopefully h-1 8 bolts re-centered, and some cheap 39.5 tsl's off my dodge.... for now... Once he gets some more money saved up, we will cage it and narrow the front 14 inches... maybe link it etc... He is a broke fawker though so its slow going.......
