Default 92 bagged 306 Ranger

Here is what I started with, after the bed was removed. I got the truck for trading about a hundred bucks worth of mustang parts. It was abandended on the road with a dead engine.

I removed the front spring perches for the air bag brackets. I also swapped out the stock beams for some dropped dream beams.

I should also add that the stock engine was already MIA when I got the truck.

It's not done, but it's close. I'm hoping to be driving it within the next few weeks.

With the spring buckets gone, I tacked the air bag brackets into place. I used a vacuum pump to suck them down for setting up the lower brackets.

Used a WATTS link instead of a panhard bar. Main reason was because the panhard causes lateral movement of the axle as the suspension cycles. The watts keeps it centered. And...theres not too many watts links on mini trucks so it's part of the cool factor. Lol

I decided to make this a six link, with the air bags on lift bars coming from the rear of the frame.

Here is where I decided to cut thru the frame to install a crossmember that the rear lift bars will mount to.

I made the rear crossmember. The tabs are sunk into the crossmember and welded inside and out.
