No, if you're looking for a softer ride I would use sheep, not mustangs.

Try forming a coherent question and you might get more than smart ass answers. What the hell does "put a mustang under a 1989 ranger" mean?

If you want something like that then buy a Honda Ridgeline.

Post pictures as you make the swap. Maybe I'll do a chassis swap on my Dodge Dakota with a Scat Pack Charger depending on how yours turns out.
