2005 Ranger build

New to this site figured i would post some pics of whats going on with my truck. also big thanks to rob@chimney canyon 4x4



mock up height of the truck with 2" block installed



this is with the leafs compressed+bilsteins



i need some better backspacing for the rims :/



prego wife was a little bit unhappy when she saw the height. had the baby last week and she is still unhappy about the height



i have taken the 2" factory blocks since these pics no HP dana30's were easily available.

coil bucket and spring hangers






got 4.88s and a SOLID cover for the rear

Why dana 30? There are Dana 44's all over the place for a couple hundred dollars, I think I would have gone with that. Nice looking truck though. Going to be a dirver/mild wheeler I'm guessing?

Yup but eb dana44s are not or they were expensive. The rest of the 44s I found were wrong bold pattern or full width neither I wanted to deal with. The 30 matches 5 on 4.5 and width and is $100

Nothing wrong with using what's cheap and available, but remember that Ranger is heavier than a Jeep and you will most likely break that Dana 30 in no time. I would start saving for a 44 in the meanwhile.

Good deal. Even though it's a Ranger, you need a feather touch right foot with one of those.

it was one hell of a weird feeling...it was like the whole thing happened in slow motion felt the passenger side get light than it was sliding on the drivers side. I'm glad it didn't keep rolling. honestly pain wise its not bad at all just sore in my back and neck.

sucky part is the day before i was pissed that the L/S wasn't working for shit with a wheel off the ground. works like a champ on ice which is probably the worst thing ever. was off the throttle doing 20mph and the truck would not stay planted in the corners.

Do you happen to have a build list of everything you had to buy/install?? I'm about to start a SAS on my '05 and I want to try and make sure I have everything before I start. The shorter this thing is apart the better.....the wife really likes her truck on the road.

does anyone have an opinion on welding up the D30 in the front of mine thinking of welding the rear instead of fixing the crap LS.

Your ranger looks good. You are definitely gonna need a 44 upfront. I hav a full width hp44 in my ranger and it has held up pretty well so far. And keep an eye on that rear axle if u decide to weld it up. Cuz those shafts will break easy. Trust me.
